Readers may be stunned to hear that my shabby-as-hell travel pitch has received a reply. It reads:

Hi, there; So sorry to hear about your wife. Not sure that self-improvement
is such a great idea but do come up with some travel thoughs and you could
always weave in your personal situation etc.

Readers may be less stunned to hear that despite assurances I was going to be updating this blog daily with pitches, I failed on day two. And although I promised to take down Pitching the World if I didn’t fulfil my promises, I’m not going to. And I’m not going to because the only reason I didn’t put a pitch up yesterday was to prove a point. Pitching the World, you see, is concerned not only with pitching a very small part of the world not very regularly, but also with the life of a freelance journalist. And this freelance journalist has been simultaneously working as a researcher on a documentary and being sort of homeless and hasn’t had a great deal of time. Hence no pitch being posted.

I do, however, have the time to give an insight into the sort of readers this award-winning fucker attracts. Today, people found themselves on Pitching the World after searching for:

‘pictures of egg’

‘crack houses’


‘pictures of a egg’

‘pitching the world’

‘egg pictures’

‘egg images’

‘living in bournemouth’

‘pic of a egg’

‘cath boundy’

Most of my new readers, it seems, are fans of eggs or pictures of eggs and not fans of grammar. I don’t know how to take this.

  1. Take it as a compliment Pitchy. Eggs are good. So too crack houses – if you like crack.

  2. Consistently inconsistent. Good pitchy!

  3. Christopher Goodfellow

    Crack Egg!

    Good to have you back Pitchy, and Bournemouth ain’t that bad!


  4. No new posts for almost a month? Why must you tease me so? And no rss feed? I’ve been reloading you page like a jilted lover’s answering machine.


  5. Christopher Goodfellow, I can only apologise. Well, that’s not strictly true: I can apologise and update this award-winning fucker more often. Have a feeling I’ve got one or two emotional breakdowns to deal with, then I’ll be back on track. Thanks for the love.
