What’s Your Social Media Style?


Remember last month’s guest post about Typography by Erin? Well my lovely friend Karen from OutFirst Digital is a social media expert and wanted to share a few of her tips with you all for another LS guest post! Check it out. You might learn a thing or two.


Hey there, I’m Karen and my specialty is social media. I love working with small business owners to help them grow a tribe of followers. I’ll be popping in on Lemon Stripes from time to time to share best practices and how to express yourself in 140 characters or less.

Whether you are an entrepreneur or just love connecting with friends and family on Facebook, your social media style says a lot about you. My personal social media style is summed up in this quote by Mahatma Gandhi:

“Speak only if it improves upon the silence.”

Granted, Gandhi wasn’t referring to your Facebook posts or Tweets, but you get the picture. Personally, when I’m using social media to positively influence, inspire, educate and simply bring a smile to someone’s face, I know I’m getting it right.

Here are a few inspirational social media styles to follow:

Fashionable & Friendly
