We deploy a Jekyll blog on GitHub Pages.

We use Jekyll and GitHub Pages now. In order to use it, you need to be familiar with the Markdown language. It is not too hard and it is worth the effort. It is very customizable. Jekyll is an open source tool, so developers can edit the theme, etc. It’s free. GitHub Pages is all static pages--it doesn’t have a database so it is faster and one less thing you need to manage. For Jekyll, you are writing a file on your computer and then uploading it. There is no admin and editor interface.

Jekyll is a techy solution for a blog. You write your blog post in markdown. It’s a static file management system and good enough for what we do with our blog.
