Bash Blogger is a shell script that generates CSS styled XHTML 1.1 static Web pages.
Keeping up a website is basically just adding new content and a bunch of small repetitive tasks, e.g. updating the archives, updating the front page, etc. Bash scripting is good for automating repetitive tasks, so this works out pretty well.
Why program in the shell instead of (Perl, Python, etc)?
You may not have Perl, PHP or any number of the other scripting languages available on your hosting provider. It's a fairly safe bet that if you have shell access to your account, you can use Bash Blogger.
