Why Static Site Generation?

I have a personal blog on Blogger, which I never felt very easy about. Writing and posting on the Blogger interface and having all the content at their server and not having the posts on a version control etc., all made me uncomfortable.

Then, I discovered GitHub pages and Octopress and everything felt very natural.
