About This Site

There are no ads here. No trackers. No paywalls. No JavaScript at all, in fact. What you see is what you get and it should load quickly, even on a decade-old Android phone. I do this out of respect for your time and attention as a reader.

I am able to do this technically because I hand code the site in HTML, CSS, and markdown, templated with a python script I wrote to eliminate duplication of the menus across pages. There are more fully-featured tools like this but I like the simple minimalism of the one I created. I will eventually open source this small project in case anyone else finds it useful.

About Me

I'm a trans woman, pronouns she/her. I'm a computer programmer by trade and my chief passions are writing and music. I live in Iowa with my wife and daughter and our adorable menagerie of fur-kids.
