The Daily Post 2.

Further to receiving the sad news about The Daily Post I was flailing about following various pages which were suggested as an alternative and came across Discover, where I found a box where one might “Pitch” one of your blogs. It seemed an invitation too good to resist so I sent the previous blog about my concerns for my well being when The Daily Post is no longer with us.

I have no idea how to make a link out of nothing, so with my limited computer skills just copied and pasted and hoped for the best.

The following is my “pitch,”

I was a little unsure as to how to proceed with this “Pitch” as I am British and the only thing I can remember pitching in my entire life was a rounders ball when a very small child, however I shall give it my best shot, as they say. The link to the above blog concerns the sad demise of The Daily Post, which has brought me much entertainment writing on and I hope some pleasure to the few who have come across my blog. As I mentioned in the blog without the Daily Word Prompt, I shall be unable to think of a topic to moan about and I fear this will end in tears with regard to my personal life. Having never taken part in any form of corporate activity, you will have to accept this as my best effort as a “Pitch.”

I am sir, your obedient servant,

Joe Wells.


About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.
