Taking Care of Buisness #giveaway

Posted March 15, 2017 by Prairie Wife - 25 comments

I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted.

A combination of travel, tragedy and the time change has kicked my butt.

woman on computerI was just beginning to find my balance with my three side jobs (this blog, senior radio producer for Lea Unleashed, and office manager for a local artist) and all my regular day to day activities as a mom of five young children when I jetted off to LA for an Elk Hunting Trip.

I promise that recap post will be up on Friday (cross my heart) but I thought we should take care of some business first.

Last month was we love our readers month of giveaways…and while it’s always a blast to share new products and give tons of gifts away it can be a bit exhausting!

Some readers emailed me wanting to know who the winners are. We used to announce them on our social media but had readers that didn’t like to have their names up in public. So, rest assured the winners have been notified, and when/if they have given permission we will be sharing their pics!

March is almost halfway done and I feel like my blog calendar is full of crossed out planned posts, arrows and x’s, and eraser marks!

women shoppingI’ve had readers asking me when our Prairie Wife interviews are coming back…and I promise you that we will get back to them. I have several wonderful women lined up but alas, haven’t had the 4-6 hours available right now to interview, edit and publish the posts. I know…excuses excuses right?! But, I’m a serious perfectionist and if I can’t do something right I don’t want to do it at all. It’s an honor to interview women and share their stories and I refuse to not give it my best. So please, don’t give up on me, and know it’s going to be well worth the wait!

As always we have posts coming up about fashion, product and book reviews and of course some giveaways! Vlogs and another funny video or two are in the works as well. More Mama Mantras are sure to be coming and with warmer weather on its way, I predict we may be adding to our animal family.

I reserve the right to go off schedule (as I did with my post last Friday) but know there is TONS of thought that goes into the content we post.

I want to keep you coming back to read our posts and leaving us smiling and feeling supported.

Along those lines I feel like this is the perfect time to ask for some input.

Let me know what you like best about PrairieWifeInHeels.com, what you hate, what you want to see more of…help us create a blog you want to come back to. We’d even love to hear if you have things you like (or don’t) about our social media posts.

belle casualAnyone that comments will be entered to win a Sass and Style hoodie (sizes S-XL) and if we have more than 15 comments I’ll pick two winners.

Here is the deal…none of those “I love everything you do!” comments. Though they make us feel warm and fuzzy inside, we’d love some specific details.

I know…picky picky picky 😉

Thanks for the support readers!

    1. I love your giveaways.

    2. I “hate” that you don’t have more giveaways – LOL.

    3. I’d like to see more giveaways. I bet you know what I like by now!

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      So wait…you like the giveaways?! 😉

  2. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I am kind of new to your blog but I really like the “Life As It Happens” section. I think the posts are interesting and “real”. I like recipe ideas and product reviews also. You have a new fan here! 🙂

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Welcome Dana! Thanks for letting me know your thoughts 🙂

  3. Valerie Dusing says:

    Asking people to critique or let’s face it be critical is brave or ? Here goes.
    Honesty, I love when you’re honest: overwhelmed by life equals posting delays, life taking priority, etc.
    What I detest: pushing products (that aren’t great) for $, “you must buy these $300 pants” (seriously?), my life is perfect and I wake up with perfect hair/makeup, I’ll tell you how to have the perfect life. Now, you don’t do the previous offenses, but other bloggers do and I don’t read them anymore. Keep it up keeping it real.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Hah I’ll go with ? instead of brave 😉 We decided at the very beginning of blogging that we would only post about items we actually would use and buy and no negative reviews…after all why should you spend your valuable time reading how much I didn’t like something?! Thanks for letting me know your thoughts Valerie!

  4. Hannah says:

    Two things: 1) I’ve really enjoyed the video reviews you’ve done on the clothes, makeup, and thrive! Would love to see those continue! 2) my other favorite posts are the ones on your everyday life and trials, the funny and serious!

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      I should have another stitch fix coming soon…and thank you for the everyday life input. Sometimes I wonder if it’s too much, it’s good to know you like those posts.

  5. shirley emitt says:

    First of all love your blog title. I like reviews kid items, clothes and books. I also like easy and fast cooking ideals, and love interviews.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thank you Shirley 🙂 and thanks for your input!

  6. Leela says:

    I love giveaways and recipes. It’s a guarantee that will keep me coming back.
    I love baking and cooking so lots of pictures of recipes is a must for me.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      I agree pics in recipes are a must! Thanks for stopping my Leela 🙂

  7. Bennie says:

    I enjoy your recipes, I keep going back to that tomato soup and plan to make it once more before the cold weather exits. I also like your prairie stores of the farm, your kids and community – it takes me away from my life in the city/burbs. Contests are always fun too and the interviews you conduct too.

    Keep up the good work, or, stop slacking!! 😉

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Oh no…two of your fav (interviews and recipes) ARE the ones I’ve been slacking on. Thanks for the input! 🙂

  8. Janel says:

    I like that you seem to blog the voices in my head so well. It’s almost like wait a second…that’s MY household! I enjoy reading the different bloggers, with all their ideas and experiences. The different voices out here on the Prairie is something I look forward to reading (listening) to.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thank you Janel! It’s nice to know I’m not alone in all the crazy loveable chaos 😉

  9. Tanya Gygax says:

    I’m fairly new to your blog after meeting you at the fashion show! I enjoy watching your product reviews and love the giveaways but what I enjoy the most is your take on everyday life and your journey with being a previvor. I love the honesty and vulnerability you share with your followers.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      It was an honor to meet you Tanya and so happy we’ve been able to stay connected. I’ll be having more posts up about my experience with my preventive mastectomy…the journey is still not over!

  10. Karen Szewczyk says:

    I love your wisdom. I love your wit. I love your humor. I love your honesty. I love your love of your family. I love your adventures. And I love your sincerity of your Prairie Wife interviewers and followers.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thank you thank you thank you! Can you see me blushing, it can be hard to be so open sometimes, yet cathartic too!

  11. Fiona N says:

    I am honest to say that I do not hate anything about your blog. I just followed your blog last month, and I really loved that how you care about us by giving feedback everyone’s comments. That made me feel happy!
    I would love to see more reviews and giveaways about kid’s books and toys, if possible!! 🙂
    Thank You!

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thanks Fiona! You’re right it has been a while since we did some reviews for kid stuff, I’ll get on that!

      1. Fiona N says:

        Yes, please! I love it 🙂

  12. Nancy says:

    I enjoy reading your blog. I like your giveaways. I’d like to see more giveaways.

    I am glad your pigs are OK after the pig pen fire.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thank you Nancy…we have more coming up 🙂 and me too, those darn pigs!
