WordPress seemed too heavy for such a small blog as this one. Plus you hear about all the vulnerabilities in WordPress. Easy as it is, keeping WordPress and its plugins up to date was becoming a chore.
Octopress, a static site generator that uses Ruby, piqued my interest. Being a Python fanboy, I found the Python equivalent of Octopress in Pelican. I exported the few posts I had in WordPress and imported into Pelican. Some tweaking over two nights and my blog is now generated statically! The only downside is having no comments for the blog now, but I don't think I have any readers and 99.99% of the comments was spam, so it's a moot point. If anyone wants to make a comment, use the tweet button at the bottom of each post or email me.
