It really depends on the frequency. If you are okay with deploying a build once every 3 days (assuming that's the frequency), I would say static rendering would be enough.

This is mainly because you do not need to set up a data storage source from which the blogs will be pulled. The data storage can range from a simple folder with markdown files to a full-on Headless CMS

Conclusion - Go for static rendering, unless there is a store from which blogs can be pulled easily. SSR is basically automating your build task.

And automation best described by XKCD is
