After six months of trying various formats which included having my own domain name (another name), I decided it would be better if I went to a blogging format and use WordPress.
I did a bit a research. Most people said WordPress was a good format and it is free.
Most of my writing is early in the morning. I awaken anytime between 4:30 AM and 5:30 AM. The coffee is prepared from the night before and all I have to do is turn it on. It takes about ten minutes to brew.
Coffee is by my side as I write. I like it strong and black.
As I thought about a name one morning; I sipped, and wrote, sipped and thought, I sipped some more. At last I had the coffee shakes. I wondered about that Bedouin goat herder centuries ago who observed his goat eating a strange little berry. Legend says he jumped about. Well when ever any human sees something like that he thinks, ’That’s for me. How can I get that kind of high?’
Well after a few attempts it was brewed and thus today we have Starbucks.
That was it! I had to name my blog in memory of that goat. There were about fourteen variations of ‘something’ – goat from jumping goat to dancing goat. I sent the list to my son and he said Jittery Goat sounds more like literary.
That’s it. That’s how and why I named my blog the Jittery Goat.
