Nice artice! As an iOS dev, taking my first steps in web dev Jekyll has been a huge help for me (along with GitHub pages) to get my personal site up and running with little effort.
And yeah supporting custom domain names on GitHub is awesome too!
Yeah. I have been into Jekyll these days and it's totally awesome. I really like the simplicity of it. And, it only does the things that I say it to do (unlike WordPress where mysterious things happen).
