I think this is a huge reason for the popularity of static blogs. For dynamic blog software, your choice is basically WordPress. Unfortunately, WordPress has a pretty bad security track record. Things might be different if there were a reliable second-place blogging engine, but as far as I know there isn't.

Another reason is the rise of version control for small projects, and the way static sites fit nicely into a Git workflow.

I use DotClear instead of Wordpress for the blog of a local non-profit, and it's nice, and according to them, easier to manage.
