re: Useful in certain circumstances to be sure! But you don't always need a SSG... sometimes vanilla HTML/CSS will suffice for a simple site!

But if I do have a multi-page site, using a static site generator would help prevent me from having to make the same changes multiple times (i.e., in the header or footer, or in sections that require the same sets of class names).

I really just like not having to copy/paste large portions of markup. I can be clumsy.

There are other ways of ensuring you don't need to edit muliple header/footer files (include in PHP for example). But like I said, I believe SSG's certainly have a place, but they're overhyped.
