@JohnMotylJr – I’ve built and torn down something like 5 personal blogs in the past year alone. So allow me to add my voice to everyone else here – you are certainly not alone.

However, I think at a certain point the only way to move forward is to stop destroying everything and starting from scratch. Learn to be comfortable with being unsatisfied and take incremental steps toward improvement.

As far as the CMS discussion goes, I recently abandoned WordPress in favor of [Jekyll]( “Jekyll”). From what I’ve read of Kirby the two are very similar but Jekyll is free, open source, and integrated with GitHub pages. As a programmer, I actually started using Jekyll to learn git, but I can understand if you design guys aren’t interested in that. I’d also check out [Octopress]( “Octopress”) if you’re interested in Jekyll.
