Christy Smith Headshot for SoFortWorthIt Blog

Hiiii! I’m Christy Dunaway Smith, the face behind the social media brand SoFortWorthIt. I’m a hometown girl born and raised in this awesome city we affectionately call Funky Town, a.k.a Fort Worth! I’ve been married to Jason, my “Sweet Husband” (the name that pops up when he calls my cell) for over 20 years, and we have two teen boys who definitely keep us on our toes. Being a BOY MOM is the bomb dot com. My parents raised my younger brothers and me in a home where Christ was the focus, and amidst the chaos, Jason and I do our best daily to create the same loving environment for our two boys.

SoFortWorthIt was initially created in 2012 when our dear friend Hal, owner of Fort Worth Magazine, asked if I would become their social blogger.  As a Fort Worth native, I was thrilled because I am so passionate about our city! I have spent the greater portion of my life involved with philanthropy work and volunteering with many local nonprofits, including serving as president of the Panther Club, an organization benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Tarrant County. This, combined with my love for food, people and supporting local businesses, landed me in a pretty perfect position to be an “influencer” before that was a term in this world. One evening while my mother and I were enjoying cocktails and brainstorming blog ideas, the name SoFortWorthIt was born. For more than four years, I was fortunate to share my expertise and experiences with Fort Worth Magazine readers.

In 2016, I branched out on my own at SoFortWorthIt.com! I cover entertaining tips, home & interior design, social events, dining, travel, holidays, health and beauty, and soooo much more! I especially love sharing all things Fort Worth. With over 35,000 followers across all media channels, on top of being the Lifestyle Editor for Monticello Neighborhood News Magazine, my plate is pretty full at all times. Still, I am totally loving it and feel fueled daily by my BFFs, a.k.a my followers!
