It’s hard to believe, but Mazumafy is almost a year old. For those who’ve been around tiny baby people, you know that a lot can happen in Year One.
There’s a lot of growing, a lot of learning and a lot of vomit. Well, in our case word vomit. Throughout the first year we’ve seen a ton of positives. Heck, we even went viral. But we at Mazumafy are always challenging ourselves to be better. So we recently took a hard look at ourselves and asked, “What are we?”
After much discussion, arm wrestling and Red Bull, we realized the answer was right in front of our eyes — er, office windows. We are Kansas City.
We live in Kansas City. We work in Kansas City. Mazuma, which powers this dang thing, is a credit union located in Kansas City.
It made sense.
“All right, all right. We get it,” you’re saying to yourself. “But what does this mean?”
Well, first off, it means we’ve got a new domain name. We’ve officially gone from mazumafy.com to mazumafyKC.com. It’s a small change that we believe makes a big difference.
From this point on, everything we produce will somehow tie back to our Kansas City roots. And we promise to make it different from other publications. There are only so many “which BBQ restaurant is the best?” articles worth bothering with, ya know? Besides, everyone already has a favorite BBQ place, and seeing a “best of” list on the internet isn’t going to change anyone’s opinion. We’d rather figure out if BBQ sauce tastes good on ice cream (true fact: it actually does if you don’t use too much).
We want to generate conversations, so even if you don’t always agree with us (and you won’t) we want to hear your thoughts – tell us what we missed and where we were wrong.
Above all else, we want to continue to be a place where you come to smile.
We feel like we’ve made a lot of great strides, but we know there’s still room to grow.
We’re almost toddlers, after all.
