Get Started with Jekyll Guide

Faster than Wordpress, cheaper than Squarespace, and more professional than Wix.

I've been using Jekyll on GitHub Pages for my website since 2015.

After a couple people have asked how they can try Jekyll, I created this guide!

Even if you don't have coding experience, I've tried to write this guide so that it's approachable for everyone. Give it a try, and [let me know how it can improve](mailto:{{ site.email }}?subject=Get Started with Jekyll Feedback).
