Iowa Girl Eats Survey + $100 Gift Card Giveaway!



Thank you so, so much for all your kind words in my last post! It might be the hormones talking, but I was brought to tears by all your encouraging comments. Blasted hormones! At any rate – thank you. 

Now about that survey! As I mentioned, this is a great time to refocus and make sure IGE is going in the right direction for the future. I started this blog almost 4-1/2 years ago as a way to contribute to the “healthy living” blogging community, with an emphasis on cooking. Over time this site has morphed from a daily “flog” (food log, y’all) to more recipe-centered content, which is where it will mostly stay. The survey I’d love for you to take, though, will help fine tune that content to make sure we’re all happy in this little space on the word wide web – whee! This survey is something I’ve been thinking about doing for awhile, and figured now’s as good a time as any to launch it.

As an incentive to take the short survey, one random entry will be chosen to win a $100 VISA Gift Card to be used however you see fit – clothes, dinner and a movie, 100 Snickers bars…totally your call (although my vote is for Snickers.) Thank you for your help to make this site the best it can be!

Oh, and have a great weekend! :)

Please complete the survey and enter to win the gift card by Friday, August 16. You can take the survey without entering to win the gift card. Winner will be chosen randomly and contacted by email.
