Hi ladies, Im a newbie and trying to learn the ropes.  I am wanting to sign up to participate in blog giveaways hosted by other bloggers.  I found opportunities by searching for 'blogger opportunities'. The details of many of these opportunities read that they will include a entry with a twitter link to my site for free if I agree to an 'announcement post' and to promote the giveaway via social media.

So my question is regarding the 'announcement post' requirement.  I logically think that this means publishing a post on my blog about the giveaway on the day the event begins.  But when I look at the text provided for the post, it appears to be targeting additional bloggers to participate in or host the giveaway.  I want to try out a few giveaways for free, but I  think my readers would be turned off by a post targeting other bloggers.  So what is intended here? 1) a post on my site announcing the giveaway on the day the event begins, or 2) a post on my site way before the event begins targeting other bloggers to also participate?

If the answer is #2, is it okay to post these on a separate page on my blog or on a bulletin board such as on this site, so they aren't part of my official feed of content?  Or is this cheating and not in the spirt of what's intended?

Help a newbie out.
