Hello. I’m Kyle but I sign my name KQD. This is my site for collecting notes and links on people, products, and punctuation. (Longer bio here.)
Published from Northeast Ohio. Thanks for reading. ⚡️

I aim to write so you don’t need to skim. There’s an in-house style guide that you’re welcome to read and remix.
Written on an old MacBook Air (with the good keyboard) or iPhone 11 Pro (the sensibly-sized one).
