- I can write everything offline.
- No horrible pseudo-wysiwyg editors with nasty rich-text controls and other crap embedded in Web pages and control panels.
- Not backed by and rendered from a database, so it's rendered fast.
- Backup of content is totally under my control
- Nikola's excellent templating system which makes it very easy for someone who can't see to create a blog and static pages that don't look like a dog's dinner.
