Pinterest Contest ... channeling my inner Social Media Diva

If you really love the product (insincerity is easy to detect) and if you really want to win, having some serious social chops is nothing to sneeze at.

Famous Footwear's "Star Studded Style Contest" had my name all over it. Shoes - check. Pinterest - check. Trip to L.A. - check.

All I had to do was create a "Hollywood" theme Pinterest board, pin at least four shoes from Famous Footwear (they make it simple with the "Pin" button on their product pages), tag the posts correctly and then pin the board URL in the right place.

I had one of those lightbulb moments that played right into my passion - dogs. So I pinned photos of Hollywood stars, some current and some retro, walking their dogs. For each one, I found a look-alike shoe from Famous Footwear and pinned that. And I pinned some random photos, too, just because I was having fun. No way did I stop at four shoes. My "Celebrity dog-walking shoes styles" board became my nightly passion!

I blogged about my board. I Facebook-ed my board. I tweeted my board. My pinning friends liked, repinned and commented on my pins. (Love you all!)

I channeled my inner Social Media Diva on this board. With passion.

And I won. So rock on, L.A., I'm on my way. The trip may include an invite to the E! Emmy's After Party.

What does a SMD (Social Media Diva) wear to such a function? I am thinking something a little glam and a little whack and a little techno-nerdy.

Suggestions welcome.
