your opinion, please

Hi friends!

I wanted to ask your opinion on giveaway roundups. Basically, a giveaway roundup just means: re-posting some active giveaways that may have become buried with the expired ones.

I have posted them before, here- and am debating if I should do this once a month or not do it at all.

Since you visit this blog- I would love to hear what you have to say. Feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.

If you leave a comment, please note that it may take a bit to appear on the blog as I do moderate comments.

Thank you for your input!

I might be bias because I have a giveaway site (http://stealsdealsandheels.blogspot.com/) but I also like to enter giveaways and would LOVE a "recap" even if it is just ones you like or find worth posting!

I think it's a good idea for people who don't read your blog every day.

But I have you in my reader and catch each post as it goes up, so it wouldn't help me any.

I think if a giveaway was posted already it shouldn't be posted again - it gets kinda confusing BUT if there was a post for just recaps of previously posted giveaways it would separate them enough.

I agree it would be confusing if giveaways were re-posted. As long as the re-posted ones aren't mixed in with new ones then I don't think it would be a real problem though.

Even though I come to your blog everyday, I think the recap is a great idea to do once a month or maybe once every two weeks as it seems the majority of your giveaways don't last a full month.

I love your site, thanks so much for hosting it and sharing all these giveaways with us!

I agree with Stephanie - maybe make a separate post of expiring giveaways a few days before their expiring date?

I do like the idea. I read mostly every time you post, but sometimes I'll pass up a giveaway and then see it later and enter b/c I have a new reason for entering or whatnot and it would be nice to see that it's still active. I wouldn't do it if it takes too much time or is annoying to you though. you already do a ton. I love this blog!!

I read every day so it's not something I need. But it doesn't bother me either.

I think reposting is a good idea. While it's probably a lot of work for you and perhaps a bit redundant for everyday readers, it would be handy to see a roundup every once in awhile. Maybe the day before a bunch of giveaways expire or once a month or so.

Thank you for your input everyone! I'm going to read the e-mails I got, and I will update you on Monday with my decision. :)

Nic said...

Yes! I would love a recap!

Tori said...

I would love that at times when I am short on time I tend to enter the giveaways that end sooner so it would be nice to revisit the others without having to dig through all the posts.

I think a giveaway round-up once a month is a great idea. What I do not enjoy is when bloggers post these often, such as once a week. When round-ups are posted too often, it can often become confusing.

By the way, your site is my absolute "must check daily" and FAVORITE giveaway listing blog! I really appreciate that you post a lot of the more obscure and less found giveaways. Almost every day, I find at least one giveaway that I had not heard about elsewhere.

Thanks so much for all your effort...and keep up the great work!

Yes, I would like a round-up, weekly recap, bc I sometimes can't read my blogroll regularly.
