Well this was a cool little highlight for this year that I didn’t see coming!
I post on Reddit fairly frequently. I don’t make a point of hiding that my screen name is me but it doesn’t scream it’s me either. I’m not a massive fan of complete anonymity in forums online anyway.
One of the mods of the Reddit MMA board: r/MMA, worked out that my username was ‘me’ and messaged asking if I’d like to do an AMA (ask me anything) for the rest of the forum. AMAs are simply a big Q&A thread with people who may have an interesting perspective though lately in the main portion of the site they’ve become a publicity stunt for those marketing new projects. I’d never really considered that I’d be suitable for one but since he asked (and apparently stalks my twitter for the food porn content!) I thought I’d give it a shot.
Fairly pleased with the response…at least it didn’t get instantly down-voted into oblivion and there wasn’t any trolling at all. Somebody did ask what my favourite zombie movie was and as an Englishman I’m slightly ashamed to say I did not instantly think of ‘Shaun of the Dead’!
Anyway it was pretty good fun and I hope a few folks get some more eyes on Cage Warriors as a result.
You can check out the full AMA in this post: I am Josh Palmer. Colour Commnentator for Cage Warriors Fighting Championship and all around grappling addict….AMA!
