Fickle, Fussy, and Finicky

I want to blog. I’ve been doing it sporadically for years. It shouldn’t be that difficult, but I just can’t focus on the writing until everything else is just as I want it. The trouble with that is; I don’t really know what I want.

What should i call the blog? Should that also be the domain name? Do I really need to own the domain? What blogging platform should I use? Should the blog have a theme?

These are just a few of the questions that I struggle with, then decide upon, and ultimate grow to dislike. Then I quit for a while until the urge strikes to either fire up an old blog, or start the decision making process all over again. It’s like creating a game character over and over and never playing the game. Is it a compulsion? Is it character flaw? Or is it a defense mechanism? I really have no idea.

I do have a pretty good idea of what I don’t want and that means that I’ll probably be doing all of this again soon, because i don’t think WordPress is the right fit.
