# Angle Grinding
-As we used to say in the '90s, this website is under construction. Feel
-free to follow the [repository](https://git.sr.ht/~rep/anglegrinding) on
-Sourcehut for an ongoing changelog.
+This is the personal site of a pseudonymous author. You will find notes
+and essays on various topics of interest here, including mathematics,
+technology, music, and whatever else I decide to write about. For a site
+changelog, please see [the git
+history](https://git.sr.ht/~rep/anglegrinding) hosted on Sourcehut.
+I prefer simple sites with few bells and whistles, and I do not really
+want to get into the weeds of web development; there is no interactivity
+good way to do this statically.
+I do not want to write in a blog format, to avoid chronological sorting.
+My writing here is not chiefly about current events, and if it is,
+should still be evergreen. I also prefer to avoid the many issues
+surrounding blog comments.
+Comment is, however, encouraged - the site may not be interactive, but I
+am. My email address is [email@example.com](firstname.lastname@example.org),
+and is repeated in the footer of every page. If you see this email
+address anywhere, consider it an open invitation to email me.
