Info

Where Dallas residents go to laugh, to hear good news, and to learn about great things in their city.

Like every major city Dallas life is packed with drama and the news cycle is filled with negative content from crimes to political division. With a population of over 1.3 million Dallas is the 9th largest city in the United States (2016 census) and its suburban areas such as Plano, Frisco, Allen, and Fort Worth are booming.

Residents of Dallas are fierce defenders of their city and those sports team who carry its mantle. You’ll find rabid fans of the Dallas Mavericks and the Dallas Stars here and even teams that carry their name while playing sports in another nearby city like the Dallas Cowboys (Arlington, TX) and FC Dallas (Frisco, TX).

While Dallas residents grapple with day to day life, they rarely get a chance to chuckle, laugh, or have shared enthusiasm as the always on news cycle grinds up their day. We thought they deserved an escape from the normal drum beat of life and tens of thousands have joined us across Facebook, Instagram, and Reddit in our quest to make daily life in Dallas a little better.

Brief

A social media brand that is 100% Dallas. We talk about all of the great things happening here from amazing startups and awesome charity work to funny memes about daily life in this great city.

We take pride in helping people in Dallas have a good day amidst all of the negative and dividing content in the world today. All of our content must conform to one of 3 principles; to make at least one Dallas resident laugh, feel civic pride, or be happy.

Before we share any content we ask ourselves: Will this make someone in Dallas laugh? Will it make them swell with pride? Will it make them happy to be alive?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then we’ll likely post the content.

Before we post, however, we also ask ourselves the opposite of these questions, and if the reverse is also true then we’re much less likely to publish the content.

This means our Dallas is Awesome channels often do not have political discussions, social issues (especially those being protested), reports of crime, and other controversial or negative topics.

What do Dallas residents like? Well it’s a wide range of content, but here’s a short list of some popular topics.

  • Memes about how bad the traffic is
  • Memes about civic issues (i.e. Lime bikes / legal marijuana)
  • Links to news stories about good events in Dallas
  • Links to news stories about good charities in Dallas
  • Links to news stories about local heroism
  • Photos of the city
  • Anything about Dirk Nowitzki
  • Anything good about the Dallas Cowboys
  • Anything good about the Dallas Mavericks
