I found using Jekyll for websites and blogging is great but sometimes its not so easy getting your OS up and running with it.

Linux Mint makes it very easy to work with. All you have to do is install ruby, rake, jekyll, nodejs and you are all ready to blog, Some OS’s dont make it easy to get everything install but with Linux Mint it is very easy all you have to do is following the 3 commands below.

sudo apt-get install ruby ruby-dev make rake
sudo gem install jekyll --no-rdoc --no-ri
sudo apt-get install nodejs 

After doing the install you are all ready to start to use jekyll on Linux Mint.
