    "Jekyll is as old as cheerios, and it is so easy for developers like me to use. I have a maybe not so popular blog that is hosted on GitHub because it is free and Jekyll actually takes care of everything for me, it practically runs itself except for new content I add. The website has the new version Jekyll 2 still a ruby static site generator giving step by step directions for the update."

    "Hugo has been the greatest tool for scaling our website and business. The ability to build on the fly in many formats, as reduced lag times, and implementation costs, while delivering content faster and easier than ever with less coding."

    "I have used Middleman for a recent website development project and I would definitely use it again. The program is really straight forward and offers a ton of helpful tools. I am relatively new to website creation, so I'm still trying to master the field. Middleman is definitely helping me grow my skills and feel more confident in by abilities."

So, I started looking for Ruby static site generators they'll help me easily create it. I finally did come across something called "Octopress". This helped me tremendously. I didn't have to do any coding, it had it all created for me already. Now I can share my thoughts with ease!"
