I switched to this site design after a couple years of using WordPress, which was easy but not very powerful or clean looking. I could never find a theme that fit what I had in mind for the site, plus it was hacked at least once (although that may have been due at the server-level, WordPress certainly has vulnerabilities).
So, after seeing a bit about Jekyll and realizing the benefits of a static site (speed, and no way to be hacked other than through the server), I decided to switch. I originally borrowed (and customized) Mark Reid’s site, but more recently upgraded to using Bootstrap CSS and a theme from Bootswatch.
