Let’s talk about the big elephant in the room for a second. I don’t know if you noticed at all, but my site just got a complete and total makeover! It’s all brand new and exciting, and it’s all for you. Yes you. This makeover has been a long time coming. The old site just felt a bit outdated to me, and it could’ve just been because it’s looked the same way for forever. Not to mention the fact that a lot of you guys really hated, and I mean HATED, the yellow. Not so much the color itself, but rather, you hated the fact that the yellow was really hard to read. I received many emails about the yellow being hard on the eyes and asking if I could change it to a more web friendly color. It wasn’t that I didn’t care enough to change it, I did care believe me I did, but the fact was that I didn’t have any great ideas for a new design and layout and also I don’t know the first thing about website design. I needed a plan before I could switch my whole site around. It’s a scary venture. As daunting as it was though, I kept planning and scheming for several months and searched the interwebs and watched countless youtube videos to learn how about web design and html codes. After many frustrated days and nights, and with the help of my incredibly talented friend who designed all of the artwork for the new site, it was finally ready. So here we are on the launch of my fresh out the oven site.
I think I might’ve mentioned once or twice (okay maybe like a million times) how much I really love doughnuts. It seemed fitting to make them the theme of the site. I wanted you to visit and think, “Yeah, this is totally Jonathan.” Plus, who doesn’t like doughnuts?! To commemorate the new site, I thought it would be fitting to make doughnuts for the first post. It just felt like the right thing to do. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite doughnut. I believe in equal opportunity among each, except maybe jelly and custard filled doughnuts, I can’t get behind those sorry. But if I had to choose a favorite, like someone put a gun to my head and was like “Pick your favorite doughnut right now!” (Although why anyone would put a gun to my head just for that answer, is besides me) I would probably have to go with a classic cake doughnut with sprinkles. It brings me back to my child each and every time.
The thing that I love about doughnuts is that they’re perfect for a quick breakfast when you’re running late or when you don’t feel like eating something extravagant first thing in the morning or if you just want a treat when you wake up. You should treat yourself. You deserve it. They’re also great as a midday snack because hello we need a pick-me-up during the end of the workday. It just needs to happen. And they’re even better as a dessert after dinner. So what have we learned about doughnuts? They’re basically the greatest invention ever made and who invented them should have a monument erected and a observed holiday immediately. In the meantime, let’s do our own celebrating by making some doughnuts. Lucky for us all, this post is here to save the day.
