We are onto day two of our contest, and since it is the weekend I am going to make it an easy one. We want your best and most creative # hashtag comment on this blog that describes how you feel about either A. Shoes B. Solestruck or C. Shoe addiction.
Some examples might be: #ichooseshoesoverpamelaanderson #shoesex or #solestruckforpresident.
Wikipedia describes the current hashtag craze as:
Short messages on services such as Twitter or identi.ca may be tagged by including one or more hashtags: words or phrases prefixed with the symbol #, with multiple words concatenated, such as those in:
#Wikipedia is my favourite kind of #encyclopedia
Then, a person can search for the string #Wikipedia and this tagged word will appear in the search engine results. These hashtags also show up in a number of trending topics websites, including Twitter’s own front page. Such tags are case-insensitive, with CamelCase often used for readability.
Definitions for some hashtags are available at hashtag.org. Hashtags were invented on Twitter by Chris Messina.
One phenomenon specific to the Twitter ecosystem are micro-memes, which are emergent topics for which a hashtag is created, used widely for a few days, then disappears.
So now that you have been educated on the history of all hashtags, get to work. Here is how this super easy contest works.
1. Leave your HASHTAG as the comment on this blog. Leave as many as you wish. PLEASE NOTE SOMETIMES YOUR COMMENTS GO TO SPAM. WE WILL CHECK THIS EVERYDAY. DON’T FREAK OUT, IF YOU LEAVE THEM 99% OF THE TIME THEY ARE THERE!!!!! (Please see my all caps above!)
2. For extra credit…and extra credit only (read brownie points at judging time) update your FB or Twitter with an update and ad #solestruckhashtagshoegiveaway
3. Three winners will be chosen for their submissions. Each winner will walk away with one pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes from the newest construction, a shape we think is perfect for New Years Eve.
We have picked these AWESOME party heels from Jeffrey Campbell as the prize—all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog, with your favorite hashtag. One hashtag per comment, but comment as many times as you like. Contest goes live now—and wraps up MONDAY at 5pm Eastern Time.
