Go to and log in to your GitHub account. Click on your avatar and select “Your repositories” from the drop-down.

Select the repository you are going to create a site for. I used “jess”.

At your repository page (mine is “jess1sd/jess”), click on the “Settings ” tab, then from the left panel, click “Pages”.

Pick a branch to use for GitHub Pages. Since you only have one branch (“main”), just select that branch.

And click Save.

You will be shown the URL of your new site. Wait 5-10 min before trying the URL.

What my beautiful Site looks like. You can also hit it from your phone obviously.

Go back to the GitHub Pages to choose a theme

You can move right/left to pick the theme you like, then click “Select theme”.

Verify that your theme is selected.

Wait about 5 min, and try the URL again. You should see the theme applied.
