The last few days have given me pause to reflect on giveaways I have been hosting on my blog. I had one person post a comment asking why was it that they had never won a giveaway, and ask my guidelines about picking winners.
I did some research - their blogger profile, the email address they were using and found that this person was ousted on another blog for using different email addresses for the same giveaways sometimes on the same blog, and sometimes on different blogs.
I was really shocked to find that even with a google search their multiple email addresses came up on over 100 postings for free books - one email address had 140, and so on.
Will this in the future discourage the publicists, and publishers in general from hosting future giveaways on blogs? Should there be strict guidelines from the onset of a blog giveaway?
Just curious on what your thoughts were and should we have a section on this site to be able to post these particular people so that they aren't able to do this ??
