A few years ago, I had the idea of starting a blog or a website. You know the thing that most folks do. I wanted to talk about my travels. Do some videos and content on cyber and tech stuff. Post about the latest gossip. That never happened, but it was always in the back of mind when various events happened in my life. I think the reason being, I didn't feel like I had a story to tell or that my voice wasn't really that important. Don't get me wrong, I could list off the accomplishments between writing and speaking but it still didn't feel like my voice was important. I was just some Air Force brat turned Army Spouse who worked in Cyber.
Then in 2019, well end of 2018, I became the 2nd CEO for the Women's Society of Cyberjutsu, a cybersecurity non-profit community for women and girls, that I had been volunteering with in various roles since 2013. Me, the behind the scenes lady that just gets stuff done. At that point I felt my voice started to matter a little bit more and so the idea of building a website to talk about all things not just cyber was reborn.
The hardest part of any website is figuring out the name and a domain. Yeah that sucked. I reached out to my awesome team to help me think of ideas. So many names came up, Mimi's Ramblings, Mari, Confessions from a cyber geek (that one was one in my head but wasn't very original). I slept on the ideas that came from the ladies and my good friend Mansi said: Mostly Mimi and I loved it! Mimi has been pseudo hacker name for the better part of a decade so it fit perfectly. Wife, Woman, Writer came later as a way to broadly describe me regardless of what I do or where I go. I am a wife, a beautiful black woman that loves the skin she is in, and an aspiring writer. It opens up the door for me to express my views and my thoughts on topics most may not like or understand. And it works.
I don't know where this website will go but I will share stories on career, cyber, finances, life, love, relationships, and any other topic I feel like talking about. Hopefully, you learn something new about me and from me to use in your everyday life!
