My name is Clari. First things first. Welcome to my blog. How are you today? May I borrow a few minutes? Great! I just want to share with you my story.
ClariSays.com was launched on November 19, 2013. I’ve been blogging prior to this and was writing under a different username. That time I blogged about every topic, some of which I didn’t care about. Instead of feeling fulfilled, I was often confused and stressed. So I took a break and questioned my intentions for creating a blog.
I created a blog not to just share my views but to also learn and push my introvert self (once in a while). Ever since I made an intense career change, I became more introverted than usual. Now don’t get me wrong! I 100% embrace my introversion (and my job) but I also have to see and meet other people.
When I finally decided on a fresh start, it took me almost a year to fix everything. Since it was nearing November, I decided to launch it on my birthday. From a massive list of topics, I was down to writing food reviews, film reviews and product reviews (both food and non-food items).
After years of blogging, I finally received invitations to events and foodie meet-ups. 🙂 I’m very happy and thankful to all the wonderful foodies/ bloggers I met. Since we’re here on this topic, I would like to take this chance to inform you that:
Not all posts are sponsored. People have this connotation that bloggers, influencers, YouTubers or whatever label is always or should receive freebies. It doesn’t work that way, okay?
We all started blogging what we ate, bought, watched and so on. But if a creator is already “on the map” there are times he/she would get freebies. That is why I always add somewhere in the blog post if I was invited to an event or a product was sent to me.
Lastly, I only share my personal experiences and views.
Fast forward to 2017
I made some small changes by creating another account. It is actually a group effort called which my friends and I call FoodieViewsPH where you’ll see food and travel-related stories. You can find my friends and I on Instagram : FoodieViewsPH.
Besides this, I also re-branded an account. If you like photography, let’s talk over at ClariCaptures.
Lastly, I hope you follow my blog and all our social media accounts. Or, you can just pick which one you would like to follow. No problem with me 🙂 I know some enjoy Facebook more than Instagram and vice versa. However, I do hope you can check my YouTube Channel and subscribe.
Besides writing and taking pictures, I also love making videos especially simple ASMR food videos. 🙂
Stay happy, safe and healthy. Also, always be mindful and kind.
