Making a Static Blog with Pelican

Pelican allows you to create a static blog. Most blog sites on the web are dynamicin the sense that the content of the site live in a database. In order to view a post on a blog, the server has to query the database, get the right content and then convert it into presentable HTML. However, in a static site, every page is pre-rendered by the static blog generator. This means that your entire blog can be uploaded to a server.
