[mimiglasses.jpg]Hello, I'm Mimi, this is my nick name, though I am also known as Miriam Medina, the creator and website administrator of


First before anything, we need to understand what a blog is all about. A Blog is a frequently updated journal or diary, also called a "Web log," which is a specialized site that allows an individual or group of individuals to share a running log of events and personal insights with online audiences.

This journal is often updated daily and contains all information that the person (the blogger) who maintains the Blog wishes to share with the world. This information is automatically inserted into a template that is tailored for the Web site. A Blog is a publication of a mixture of personal thoughts, experiences, and web links. Some blogging sites may provide a variety of topics that may be of interest to the public. There are blogs that allow visitors to make comments or ask questions, in response to the blogger's postings. A blog can be formal or informal, depending on the train of thought of the blogger. Some bloggers may use their real name or prefer to remain anonymous, by using a nickname. In some cases, the "blogger" will write in the first person.

As for the Blog "Mimi Speaks." Many people who have visited history, educational or genealogical websites, and benefited immensely from them, have never had the opportunity to know who the individual or group of individuals are, that have worked behind the scenes diligently, researching and providing this trustworthy information to the public. I know that I myself at times feel curious about this. Since History is my passion, I love nothing more than sharing its long-term relationship with you. The "Mimi Speaks" blog's intent is to discuss New York City, New York State and areas of American history, as well as some issues on life , in the hopes that the public be encouraged to participate in expressing their own thoughts, questions and opinions. It is also a great way for getting to know each other. From the grateful feedback which I have received in regard to the Feast of Mt. Carmel and the Giglio Feast, which was posted in the "East Harlem" Blog, apparently it seems to have stirred up nostalgic memories among its past participants and once residents of the old neighborhood. This is what makes the Blog worthwhile. I sincerely hope you will continue to visit. May each and every one of you have a great and positive day.
Goodbye for now.........Until the next time.................When "Mimi Speaks."
