Hello, Replers! Have you ever wanted a Blog to present your Cool Projects? Lucky Day for you, I am showing just that in this Post!! First off, I'll give credit where credit is due; http://www.jekyllnow.com/ was used for the template portion of the site. Okay with that out of the way, Let's start the Tutorial! :D

TUTORIAL

Step 1. Fork my Repl (That one is obvious I guess 🀣)

Step 2. The first thing we are gonna do is edit the header to our liking!


So, to do this Simply find the /site directory. Once in there you can can find the _config.yml file. Simply tweak the values in there. Now we have something looking a bit more professional!

Step 3. Okay, now we are gonna edit the about page! This is super easy! Go into site/about.md Then click the edit button. Once more, tweak the values to your liking!

Step 4. Yay! It's time for our first Post! So Jekyll's titling scheme is like the following, YEAR-MONTH-DAY-URL TITLE.md Each File Represents a Post. Go into the sites/_posts directory. There is a sample post in there for you. You'll wanna hit the "edit" button once again. At the top of the post there is a section that says:

--- layout: post title: You're up and running! ---

This is Jekyll's way of knowing the Layout (in our case, post) and also the title that appears when you open the Post. (Don't get confused with the URL TITLE. The URL TITLE is how the post appears in the URL)

Next, we have the content of the Post. This is pretty self explainatory. You can edit it using Markdown. Here is a Markdown cheatsheet if your a beginner, https://www.markdownguide.org/cheat-sheet

Conclusion

Looks pretty nice! I'm thankful for your recommendations, though I'm not a good blogger, and it is too difficult for me to write an article. I often use the help of https://www.trustmypaper.com/Β company. The writers from this company prepare excellent papers on any topic, and their customer support service is also nice.
