How I launched my blog with free of cost and the minimum efforts?

Describes how to use available tools for blogging and launch a personal blog with a customised domain without paying any penny.

As I promised in my previous article “How I have relaunched my website?”, I will show you the best and quick way to launch your blog. I have tried numerous free tools for publishing my blog but they were either too complex one or chargeable. I had clear requirements that a blogging platform should have:

After reviewing many online blogging tools, I found Github Pages most fitting into my requirements. For Github Pages, I am assuming you are aware of “Jekyll”, a templating framework. If not, then, I will suggest visiting https://jekyllrb.com/docs/. Jekyll is a very interesting framework. It’s built-in Ruby programming language but requires very less programming skills to use it.

Here are the steps:

That’s it. Your blog is live. I have launched my blog https://blog.mayurkumar.info using the above steps only. You can visit it for a practical demo. Still, I am migrating my previous posts to this new blog so you may find some old posts there till I will complete the migration. Please let me know in comments if you have any questions or suggestions on these steps.
