If you are done editing the information, it is possible to Continue to Layouts.

Step 6: Select Page Theme

Github has provided several themes to choose from for your page. If the themes usually do not meet your taste, you are able to create and design your own with an index.html and stylesheet (perhaps in another tutorial).

Step 7: Publish the Page

Lastly, go through the Publish button, and allow Github around 10 minutes to process your page.
