Currently, i'm shopping for a nice open source static blog generator infrastructure, which supports commenting, preferrably using Google+.
This site is a local git repo on my computer (which is dumb, if you consider how i got here), with a remote at my web hotel. The remote has a post receive hook which copies the generated HTML into my public web directory. All this sounds terribly complicated but i assure you it's not. I might even write a post on it at my brain dump.
