I use Jekyll for my own blog and it works great. I agree however that the
Jekyll website and docs look a bit outdated. They are however up to date.
In terms of what you want for blogging Jekyll sets you up pretty good. You
in my blog to install packages to resize and optimize images for instance.
You can customize it a lot and with enough know how you can make your blog
a PWA as well.
In terms of other blogging software, in the JS world you will hear a lot
about Gatsby JS (https://www.gatsbyjs.org) which loads faster and adds a
lot of performance features like lazy loading images and makes your blog a
Progressiv Web App by default which again improves loading speeds a lot by
catching files on the user's device. Everything Gatsby does can be done
with Jekyll but you would have to do it yourself.
With all that said, I think Gatsby is overkill for a personal blog but it's
up to you. It definitely has a more professional feeling.

as I expected. I know Github Pages integrates well with it which is a plus.
These days what blogging software are people using ? I'm wondering if
there's a JS platform that's had more development, or if Jekyll is still
widely used by us and our peers.
Any suggestions or comments welcome ... thanks !
