Blog themes are the perfect Jekyll themes to use if you're looking to start your own blog, they're optmized for readability, so you can focus on writing.
Free themes are perfect if you're just starting out with Jekyll. Since they're free, you don't have to worry about choosing the wrong theme.

Massively was originally designed by HTML5UP and Jekyll was integrated by JekyllUp: Jekyll Themes
How to Use This Theme
Jekyll consumes themes in two flavors; gem-based or spread across multiple folders in the site source. This port is of the second type. Concretely, it means that you can simply grab the zip or clone this repository, run
bundle install in the new directory and finally
bundle exec jekyll serve. You can now access your brand-new Jekyll site on http://127.0.0.1:4000/. Enjoy!
If you’re completely new to Jekyll, check out it’s documentation first. It’s not too hard, we promise!
Slapform is supported out of the box! Just add your email to
_config.yml and test the form. Every time one of your visitors submits the form, you’ll get an email straight to your inbox containing the submission so you can get back to them right away. Slapform is very extendable, including AJAX submissions, webhooks, and more.
The sitemap is auto generated! Just simply change the sitemap variable in front matter of each page. It looks like so…

This is Massively, a text-heavy, article-oriented design built around a huge background

that fulfills a few user requests and makes use of some new techniques I've been wanting
to try out. Enjoy it :)
