Thoughts on blog engines

What I want is a blog engine that will give me a scalable but easily portable site. My current thought is to either use mostly static files or a small fast single file database like sqlite. I do want to be able to have things like comments available but I think I would like them to be cached statically rather than being appended at page load.

I’ve looked at nanoblogger but it feels like it’s become a little heavyweight for what want. I’ve looked at vee but it seems a little too minimal. I could use nanoblogger and just not deal with the extra features. Or I could try to build my own implementation (Probably using Tcl). Another possibility is to use Blogger’s ability to export a static site, but I think trying to work in enhancements might be hard to do if I’m using a closed system for the initial static generation.
