Comments: Pros:
- You have far more control over every aspect of your blog.
- Thanks to Hugo you generate your site about 50x faster than with any other static site generator.
- No installation of Ruby gems, git, database etc...
- It has a powerful content model out of the box.
- Disqus is integrated for blog comments.
- Use Zapier, Mailmunch or SumoMe with hugo-bootstrap-premium theme.
- No overcluttered user interface.
- You can add your custom domain name.
- Version controll.
- Sync with GitHub and your own computer.
- Support questions was answered fast and accurate.

Cons:
- It was hard to find a theme that I liked.
- No asset pipeline. But this is only a concern if you are a developer and build your own themes and then it is not a problem because you already have built your own asset pipeline anyway.
- There is no easy way to add a plugin or extension engine to Hugo. But instead shortcodes, dynamic data sources, menus, syntax highlighting and tables of contents are all built.
