I'm an 18-year old Computer Science student. Like most CS students, I spend a lot of time surfing GitHub for that coveted snippet of code. Everybody has, at least once, felt extremely exhilarated after finding the repository they've been looking for all night. As time progressed, I started to take GitHub more seriously.

It might take a little bit of work but you can also setup a blog with Jekyll and serve it using Github pages.
Alex Miller- Ph.D. Student, Data Scientist at Wharton
100% free; supports custom domain. Downside is you need to code your own HTML/CSS (or Markdown). But if you just have a site with < 5 pages, it should be pretty simple for even non-coders to copy a template they like and fill in the blanks.

The hack I used on my photo portfolio is to use Github Pages. This lets you create static websites hosted for free if you're fine having your code open to the world. You'd need to be a bit tech savvy in order to make it work though. If you're willing to code a little bit, then pair this to Jekyll and you have an auto-generated website :)
