Hmmm, I'm hearing elementary is moving their blog from Medium to GitHub Pages.
I think that's a big improvement, GitHub Pages (and it's underlying Jekyll static-site-generator) is a nice and understated service. I'll probably continue using Jekyll once I've switched to a homeserver.
@alcinnz I have been using Gitlab pages, which is their equivalent, for doing a small local football club website for a while now. It's great, and they just added the feature to be able to automatically create/update the TLS certificate for the custom domain name.
