Which Do You Prefer?

I have tried announcing the winners of my giveaways in 2 different ways. Primarily, I write a special post announcing the winner. Lately, I have tried announcing the winner at the top of the actual giveaway post. I posted the newest winner (the Brightfeet Slippers giveaway) on the actual giveaway post, and the honestbaby winner were posted as special announcement posts.
The benefit of posting the winner on the actual giveaway post is that it does not clog up the main page with winner announcements. The benefit of the special announcement posts is that they show up in the daily emails, letting everyone who subscribes know who won.
Both ways, of course, I email the winner and they have 48 hours to respond.
So... Do you prefer one over the other? Please leave a comment and let me know which you like best!

I prefer a special post so it shows up in google reader and I don't have to go back and look at the original post to find out who won.

I like the SPECIAL email of Winners so that all who subscribe to you know who won and basically that I LOST or vise-versa would be nice. Haa-haa-haa!
But most preferably...I like the email telling me that I won and that I have 48 hours to respond to that email.

I like doing a special post. I will sometimes add the link to the original giveaway in the winners post so if anyone wants to see what the review and giveaway was, they just need to click it.
