Welcome to the new look JBPSD, which aims to piss away my hard-earned Google ranking whilst simultaneously becoming the beef-free bovril of online journals. I have decided to call it my ivate secret dia because I trained as a typographer and you didn’t.

There may be some glitches in different browsers ect ect but to be honest the testing stuff is quite boring. Do let me know, in a tactful way.

I have not yet rewritten the ‘about’ page due to the fact that I had to go to the Village Shop for some milk. I shall asap and pdq.

    Just to cut that particular one off at the pass.

  2. The Girl says:

    Very sexy.


  3. anna says:


    Gorgeous, and only takes 400,000 years to load!

    Well done. Long live the ivate secret dia.

  4. JonnyB says:

    Yes. WordPress picked a particularly good time to go out in sympathy with the postmen, didn’t it?

  5. I always believed that, deep down, Norfolk was technologically cutting edge.

  6. Mr Angry says:

    I do like the new look, but like that one-eyed woman in the pub, it is somewhat strangely familiar.

    Welcome to the WordPress revolution. You can still call it a revolution after four years, right?

  7. greavsie says:

    You’ve changed!

    Oh, it’s like….it’s like having someone plump the cushions on your favourite chair.

  8. Cliff says:

    I like it. I like it a lot.

    I might do the same with his is thi


  9. LORKS what is going on here? What’s happened to the P R R and Y? You can’t make anything out of a spare PRR and Y you know, apart from make a Pryr and nobody wants one of them, it’s not even a thing!

  10. MB says:

    i’m looking at this on my phone on a tram so i can’t tell any difference.

    But boo! Change is bad. Keep everything the same forever. Never change anything ever. The old way is always better.

    I think 5 years in the NHS has finally got to me.

  11. mike says:

    Oh crumbs, this reminds me that I never answered your Important Technical Query. One presumes that the matter has been satisfactorily resolved.

    Very nice, and you jumped ship at the right moment, as Blogger has just gone up the spout AGAIN. Bugger Blogger, as someone must have said by now…

  12. JonnyB says:

    I feel that the layout of the comments is, at present, shit. But I shall sort it out with my new found CSC skills.

    Thank you very much. Somebody find a use for a Pryr for Stephen? I am worried that he is worried.

    And booooooo I have discovered that you are not allowed to do adverts on ever. I was going to start plugging Zoe’s and Andre’s books. Everybody in the comments box, go buy them?

  13. sablonneuse says:

    Hmmm Honest AND tactful.
    Let me see. Yes, one or two things to sort out but -o far so go–

  14. Brennig says:

    Another vanillamist users on wordpress? Stone me, the world’s not as exclusive as it used to be.

    Re-routing my bloglines feed right now.

  15. Katy Newton says:

    Truly rvellou, Mr B.

  16. Actually i spent several long years training as a typographer. So there.

    *good luck in your new home*

  17. Bugger me. WP doesn’t let your preview and re-compose your comment. As a typographer i find that very slightly irritating.

  18. Saltation says:

    ooo. new home. does this one come with a secret room too?

  19. JonnyB says:

    How many typographers does it take to change a light bulb?

    None. Any fucking idiot with a Mac can do it these days.

  20. Tim says:

    It’s a tiumh o ointless e-banding!

  21. zed says:

    oh ra-ther.

  22. JonnyB says:

    I am concerned that people might not change their links. I think I shall approach Girl’s PR company to get them to do a mail round.

  23. The Girl says:

    That’s a brilliant idea!!!

  24. meredic says:

    I am Spartacus ( I was going to claim Typograff..thingy but I can’t spell)

  25. bromman says:

    I always thought that a Typographer was responsible for the charts down at the blood bank.

  26. Peter says:

    I’d been thinking of something along these lines for some time. (This joke might be a bit advanced for some readers.)

  27. Dearest Jonny,

    Congratulations on your seamless and sparkling new upgrade. In honour of the occasion I have decided to upgrade my attitude to match. Henceforth, my only words shall be those of sunny uplift, praise and encouragement, as butterfly-like I shed my crusty chrysalis of scorn and take to the pure blue skies of gnnnn… nyeurgh… akh… aaaaahworthless bourgeois dilettante so you are.

    Bugger. Well, at least I tried. Anyway, good luck in the new digs…

    Yours etc,


  28. Jenny says:

    Again, I’m not a fan of change.

    Boo. Oh, er, Yay?

  29. Kadeeae says:

    All I know is that I’ve shoved the url into bloglines clicked ‘add’and voila! I’m subscribed. All is right with the world, eh? 😉

  30. clarissa says:

    Best of luck with your new super secret private diary. I will read, but certainly look forward to the MTV series, which rumour has it will be coming out any day now. Look forward to watching. x,c

  31. Hfactor says:

    Ooh, get a load of your swanky little comment borders. I want me some of them there chicanes.

    I also thought you had a nifty little animation going on but it was a bug crawling across my screen. Ho hum.

  32. JonnyB says:

    Hullo Kadeeae and welcome. I am glad that the technical facilities are working OK. There was some concern yesterday.

  33. Rufus S Later says:

    What is “beef-free bovril of online journals”?

    Is it a Norfolkian typographer in-joke?

    * Brown and sticky?
    * Love it / hate it?
    * Called something else down-under?

    Am I getting muddled up with Marmite?

    Aaargh … its all so confusing!

  34. Blossom says:

    Disappointed that so far the comments haven’t found their way to your old posts to which they apply. Love reading your witty posts on your exciting exploits in Norfolk – also love reading the weird, inane & brilliant comments you get back as well. Bring back the comments of yore!

  35. gmclean says:

    er ic.

    OK, I’ve got a spare v, y, n and e. Are they of any use?

  36. duncan says:

    i’m not from london, you know? change gives me the fear. i shall do my best to adapt quickly

    chin chin


  37. Saltation says:

    the fear! the fear!

  38. It still has that new smell in here.

  39. Eliza says:

    i’ve changed my favourites thingy, why is everyone changing to wordpress… is there somthing i don’t know about? i feel left out.

  40. JonnyB says:

    Rufus – it was sort of something that somebody thought was a good idea at the time.

    Blossom, I am not sure that you can import old comments. But they are still there for you if you have a quiet night in with the other half and a bottle of something cold.

  41. Ani says:

    Nice new digs, Jonny.

    You CAN import old comments, though. I did it when I moved a little while ago. Mind you, I had about 95% less posts than you do, but still.

  42. JonnyB says:

    Ah – you can if you used the godawful Blogger comments system. There’s probably a fix for Haloscan – but I’m guessing only if you’re using hosted WordPress.

    [nb everyone please admire the above sentence where I have made it look as if I know what I’m talking about]

  43. spazmo says:

    Above sentence duly admired.

  44. Ya’ll old world types are so cutting-edge. I’m just happy that I can now see and contribute to the comments. Because it’s important to me to comment on everything I read and to have people remark on my comments and then to be able to read those remarks. And perhaps comment on them.

  45. Ani says:

    Sentence duly admired, indeed.

    [Clearly you know more than I do. And you’re funnier, too. Excuse me while I weep quietly in the corner.]

  46. Saltation says:

    goodness, how about urban pedestrian’s remarkable comment, eh?

  47. beth says:

    Oh brilliant.

    Now I’ll have to change my link.
    Don’t you *ever* think of anyone but yourself?

  48. Richard says:

    I’ve changed my link but don’t know if it’s working yet. Try writing something new.


    Okay, okay. I appreciate that it now lacks some lasting effect. I know that no one will read my comment now – except stalkers and lonely people – but it’s the thought that counts.
