Jekyll Blog Themes

Several different themes I've created for the JAMstack Jekyll generator from scratch, focusing on performance and accessibility while still maintaining good design principles, and free to use!

Although there are many tools and methods of creating a blog, I found myself never fully sastified with any of the available options. There is not enough emphasis on user-accessibility, speed, and overall aesthetics.


Due to these unique challenges, I decided to embark on learning how to create fully-featured blog templates in the static site generator Jekyll with specific purposes.


There are several different themes I have created over the years. For more information, visit the following:

  • 🗃️ Enjoyment Work: A Digital Garden to capture daily thoughts and progress, as well as curated ideas with unique synthesis—a personal zettelkasten.
  • 🚰 Watery: A minimalist, bare-bones theme for Jekyll only using the Water.css framework while still following the best practices for accessibility and search-engine optimization.
  • 📓 Purelog: A responsive sidebar Jekyll theme using the Pure.css framework, designed for writers and bloggers of all kinds.
  • 🎏 Classic Spirits: A classic sidebar Jekyll theme for old-school blogging, created with the Bulma framework.
