    To be honest, I wouldn't use Jekyll. Jekyll is fun but writing an article takes a lot more time. I only know of one blogger that blogs a lot and uses Jekyll.

    It would be hard for your friend to blog using it. Just go with wordpress. Try to find a developer to help you build the theme.

      Jekyll is tons easier to write a blog article + it has Markdown support out of the box which makes it far more extensible than Wordpress' Rich Text Editor.

      I'd try to avoid getting on board of Wordpress these days, because there are so many better, easier and more adaptive solutions like Node CMS's, static site generators (like Jekyll) or real CMS's like Kirby and Craft.

        So you think that a non technical person would find it easier to blog using Jekyll than Wordpress?

        I would bet a lot of money that this is not the case.

          Well if you look at the way how Stackexchange has a visual editor that basically just writes Markdown, I think it's easier for both clients & developers. Something like that must certainly be possible for Jekyll.
