Jekyll is the best static site generator I know, which I found through github. My personal site at http://razetime.github.io is hosted on jekyll and runs very well. Jekyll is simple to use if you're going for a minimalistic layout and a smaller number of pages. However, for larger websites for magazines and such I'd rather go for a CMS like Wordpress, since Jekyll gets really clunky and hard to manage with the number of posts you have to write and number of layouts you have to manage. It's more manual and values personalization, but comes at the cost of ease and use. See More

Hexo has a relatively large following and community, especially in China. While this is certainly a positive, many developers who do not know chinese would be unable to follow all the guides and tutorials out there written by their chineses counterparts. See More
Sadly the authorization system is fairly limited. Co authors can post and publish, without you getting a chance to pre-check their posts as an admin. e.g. you can't give them "create" and not give them "publish" permissions. They can only edit their own posts however. See More
