Warning: Run away now, while you still can. Flee while I'm busy dragging out my nice, big soapbox.
There are a few things I can't stand in the bloggy world, one of which is the way winners are sometimes announced. I'm going to avoid names completely, of course.
I totally get it when the host emails the winner and then announces it on the blog however they want.
It's perfectly understandable that the host adds the winner to the bottom of a post, and adds into the title "This is My Post of Awesome! And Winners Too!" because then a person will probably check.
But when the winner is added briefly into a post and is told to email the host?
That's drives me insane. Personally, I don't read every single post on a blog. I look through my blog roll and click on most of the posts, depending on what it's about. If the title makes it sound interesting, I clicky. But how can someone add the winners onto the end of a post, telling the winner to email them, without the winner having any idea that they were just announced?

What do YOU think? Am I crazy? Is there a point to my banter?
