I decided to switch my blog from Google Blogger to a static blog generated by Jekyll.


  • Text written in markdown
  • Syntax highlighting works out of box
  • Full control over the content
  • Version Control (via Git)
  • Independence - you can publish the generated HTML pages
  • Automatic publish using GitHub pages


  • At least basic web development skills (HTML, CSS, JS) needed
  • Only static generated HTML, but can enhanced by Javascript

See the Jekyll documentation for more details.
