I've gone back to static generators almost exclusively - full circle really as some of my first web pages were generated with Userland Frontier (anyone remember Clay Basket?) nanoc (http://nanoc.stoneship.org/) is currently my tool of choice. WordPress and (popular) plugins are a huge target these days - happy to not be worried about security with static pages. Comments can be handled by Disqus, mobile publishing with dropbox and some plumbing. Certainly not as easy as a "one click install" at a webhost, but fast, scalable and infinitely configurable. Generating feeds in the build process is not difficult either.
