Lately I've been trying to look at other blogs and see some of the common methods for signing up for giveaways. Basically, I'm shopping around for the best method to host my own giveaways.
My initial idea was to host a giveaway with some form of a contest, which I haven't seen too many around the blog sphere.
One of the more popular ones is you feel out a form for all of the places you've spread the word of the giveaway, then tally up points. I felt that this process was really tedious, and not everyone has facebook and twitter accounts, so it seems a little unfair.
Second common, was just using random.org to pick the winner. It's nice, easy, and very simple. I liked this one a lot, but I felt it may not be really fun.
Personally I'm really fond of the contest idea, but I still want feedback as to what participants of the giveaways like the most.
