Meet Karlie Deitrick of Karlie Does Dallas
What’s the one thing that your readers and followers love?
I think one of the best things, and one of my favorites too, is giving people a backstory on the things you probably see every day but don’t really notice. Every mural you see has an artist and story, and we have some of the best architecture in the US and some of it has amazing history. I like to use my page to highlight what makes Dallas special. And of course, ALL THE FOOD. I try to stay away from corporate chains and feature local restaurants owned by real Dallasites. Dallas is a foodie capital and has so many great small businesses and I’ve done all the leg work to show you the best ones!
What is the #1 challenge that your readers have when they reach out to you?
I have a lot of people reach out to me when they are new in DFW and still aren’t quite sure where to go. My page can be a pretty good tour guide!
Did you always have a sense that you’d start your own business or a project of your own?
Never in a million in years did I think some pictures of the city I posted to Instagram would lead to all this, but I’m so happy it did! Just goes to show you never know what can happen.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Well typically I work a full week but on weekends I split my days off between Dallas and Fort Worth and spend the full day trying different restaurants and local businesses and taking pictures to create posts for my Instagram and website. I call them Instagram days lol.
What is an essential book that you you’ve enjoyed that you think everyone needs to read right away?
Not essential lol but one of my favorite books is called “walking in circles before lying down.”
It’s a quirky book about a girl who feels lost but how everything kinda works out if you listen to your pet dog.
What keeps me going is looking back and seeing how much I’ve grown. Even in my personal life and career as well as my hobby. When I look back a couple years ago and see where I was and what I was struggling with then, and look now and see that I conquered that and continue to grow, only makes me want to keep pushing forward.
Let’s transition to Dallas:
Where would you like to have a staycation in the Dallas area?
Definitely Van Gogh. I love his art and I’ve read so many books on him and he’s always described as an outcast and a kinda miserable person but he painted the world so beautifully. I would be so interested in getting to know him. And I would probably take him to All Day Tribal Cafe. It just seems like a good, small place to get to know someone artsy…. plus coffee!!
