There are many good blogs and references out there in regards to Jekyll blogs. Here are some that I found quite useful.
[Jekyll Bootstrap](http://jekyllbootstrap.com) </br> This is the site by a very smart guy from LA that built a frame work using Jekyll integrated with bootstrap. While I opted initially to not go this route in the future I may if I feel the need. Regardless, you can learn a lot about how Jekyll works by playing with this framework,and going thru the code.
[Jekyll Lanyon tutorial](http://joshualande.com/jekyll-github-pages-poole/) </br> How to get started using the lanyon jekyll fork from the guy who created it.
