Hello, it’s Savitri here and I just want to share a bit about myself…
I am a wife, mom and professionally, a learning technologist. I basically would research all sorts of software and gadgets that can be used in education. I would, for example, research how Instagram works and the possible ways that it can be used in a learning environment. If I find that educators may benefit from using Instagram in the classroom, I would create training materials and later present them. I specialised in social media and open source technology. I love free and finances in education is always tight.
We moved from the US to the UK in April of 2010 and I decided to stay home with the girls. While I enjoy every second with my family and we explored many places, the change was very hard and for a few years, I went through depression.
In 2007 I became a blogger: scrapbit.com. A papercrafting/stamping kind of blogger. I shared many crafty creations and also video tutorials. I haven’t taken the blog or any of my tutorials down, you can find the tutorials on my YouTube channel, but the regularity of crafting and tutorial making came to an end because of my mental state. I kept wanting to get back into blogging since I wanted to share our travel photos and experiences but the motivation never lasted.
Through the patience of my family, a lot of reflection and reading on my part, a psychologist and Instagram, I bounced back up and now feeling like I am 100% physically and mentally healthy. In 2015, I didn’t want to do anything. In 2016, life started to look bright again and this 2017, I am hoping to keep staying afloat and get back into sharing my knowledge and a smidge bit of our lives with the world wide web again via this space.
I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself but good gosh I REALLY REALLY want to keep this up this time around. I not only desire to teach you a thing or two about photography, Instagram, traveling Europe and who knows what else, I also want to continue feeling better about myself.
A little bit about me and why I am here today instead of my other blog. I need a fresh start while still not ready to close the other blog down.
