If you’ve heard of the name Charisse Yu, then you have either seen her on TV, online, or both. That’s because this flourishing food blogger was also, a TV reporter and journalist. Several years ago, she gave up her microphone for an apron and transitioned into food blogging. For her, it was the best decision she ever made.
Not only did she have time to spend with her two little boys, but she also got to make all of the delicious meals she has wanted to make for years.
Charisse has developed quite the following. On her Instagram page, she has close to 400,000 followers, while her Pinterest boards see over a million monthly viewers. She is even seeing her blog’s traffic skyrocket. Since the pandemic has been rough on many, with millions losing their jobs or having heightened levels of stress, food has become the go-to comfort stress reliever. Thankfully, people like Charisse are foodies who know exactly what will hit the spot.
There’s something unique about Charisse’s angle that you won’t find other food bloggers taking. It involves stop motion videos. Charisse has become known for making snapshot videos lasting for up to a minute that are comprised of using thousands of photos. The result is a seamless video, so eye catching to the viewer. Her stop motion videos have a unique flair that enhances the viewers experience.
Her knack for stop motion has allowed her to broaden her base to even lifestyle videos outside of food. After all, it’s a niche that she has been slowly easing herself into as well. She wants to ultimately become someone who is able to dispense holistic and well-rounded advice that can improve peoples’ lives in every area.
Charisse is a true foodie. When she’s not making delicious meals at home, she’s eating out at restaurants. In fact, she loves going out and trying new culinary deliciousness. She loves it when others cook for her because it gives her a much-needed break!
Her love of food evolved early on to include cooking at home since it’s not always feasible to eat out with little ones. As any parent knows, they can be a bit challenging when out in public places surrounded by crowds of people.
Besides food, Charisse loves to travel. In fact, she’s been to over two dozen countries already. While the lockdowns related to the pandemic have slowed down her travels, she plans to dive right back into it once things are safe and open again. She loves travel so much that she has also begun sharing more travel-related content with her rapidly-increasing audiences.
