I Need Input on My Giveaways

I almost titled this, “I Need Suggestions for My Giveaways,” but I knew some yahoo (probably, but not necessarily, related to me) would post some off-the-wall suggestions for things I could give away. I’m hopeful that the title I chose is a little more selective.

I’m trying to figure out the best way to run my giveaways.

If you’ve been entering my giveaways, you know I’ve been using PunchTab recently. It loads slow on my page, though, and requires Facebook, which not everyone uses.

I thought about using Rafflecopter, but last time I looked, there were still a few glitches.

I can also just stick with comments. Just single entry, leave a comment. Or several options, such as tweeting, liking the page on Facebook, following on GFC or Twitter. My problem with using likes and follows as contest entries, even if they’re not required is that I don’t really want people to follow me just to win a book. I want people to follow me because they want to. (That’s just me. I know different blogs have different goals, and that’s fine.) I would like to do entries for sharing about the giveaway on Twitter, Facebook, and maybe Google+. (I’m there, but I haven’t really figured it out.)

So, now that you know where I’m coming from, I’d like to know what you think. What is your preferred way to enter a blog giveaway?

Bloggers, what method has worked best for you?
