+About the yt Project
+====================
 
-This is an example page!
+This blog covers updates on the `yt Project <http://yt-project.org/>`_.
 
-Here is an attachment example:
+The yt project aims to produce an integrated science environment for
+collaboratively asking and answering astrophysical questions. To do so, it will
+encompass the creation of initial conditions, the execution of simulations, and
+the detailed exploration and visualization of the resultant data. It will also
+provide a standard framework based on physical quantities interoperability
+between codes.
+
+Development of yt is driven by a commitment to Open Science principles as
+manifested in participatory development, reproducibility, documented and
+approachable code, a friendly and helpful community of users and developers,
+and Free and Libre Open Source Software.
+
+This blog is maintained using the software `Blohg <http://blohg.org/>`_, which
+manages posts and content with the `Mercurial <http://mercurial.selenic.com/>`_
+version control system.  If you'd like to contribute to the blog, fork the
