It takes 1GB for WordPress in 2020

When it takes 1GB to run a relatively lean WordPress website in 2020 I see the appeal of static site generators. These are from my $10 a month Digital Ocean server for this website.

A few years back we could comfortably run a basic blog on a server with a mere 512 MB of RAM.
