This is designed to be an easy layout to modify for your own blog. It is based on zachholman's blog themes: the "old" one, now opensourced as left, and also in his actual theme, that's not opensource (I believe), but I stole some ideas anyway. I also took something from jekyll-bootstrap, and, of course, I'm using bootstrap as a base for whole thing.
git clone https://github.com/YOUR-USER/YOUR-USER.github.io
bundle && rake init;
foreman start -f Procfile.dev.
You should have a server up and running locally at http://localhost:4000.

You should deploy with GitHub Pages- it's just easier.
All you should have to do is to rename your repository on GitHub to be
username.github.io. Since this is a Jekyll project, you
should be able to see your new site at http://username.github.io.
This is MIT with no added caveats, therefore feel free to use this on your site without linking back to me or using a disclaimer or anything silly like that.
If you'd like give me, holman (from left layout), plusjade (from jekyll-bootstrap), fat and mdo (from bootstrap) credit somewhere on your all-new blog or tweet a shout out to us, well hey, sure we'll take it.
You can also thank me doing a donation =)
