Where I Spend My Time on Reddit
BJ requested a list from me so obvs I had to obey
- •Reddit is an Internet text and image board. It calls itself the "front page of the Internet" with news stories, social and pop culture stories, and cute pictures of puppies.
- •Everything is organized by "subreddits" which is like a forum based around a certain category. In the past year I've become a pretty active "redditor" and here's a few subreddits I frequent:
- •/r/AskReddit and /r/TIFU (Today, I fucked up)Ah, the very staples of Reddit. AskReddit is a sub where people ask questions and everyone answers, and TIFU shares stories of fuck-ups. I go here because this is where the things that go "meta" originate, and I gotta be in on the jokes! (Otherwise I have to visit /r/OutOfTheLoop). If you're gonna start redditing, start by browsing these subs to get a feel for our obnoxious community
- •/r/CasualConversationA subreddit to converse and shoot the shit around. Once you start to think all the people of Reddit suck, try this sub to meet better ones!
- •/r/Columbus, /r/OSU (The Ohio State University) /r/Indiana, and /r/IndianapolisJust keeping in the know how with places I consider myself to be a local. Reddit is a great way to meet people and hear about events.
- •/r/SkinCareAddictionThis sub gave me so much knowledge about skin care, helped me develop a routine for my face washing, and taught me what DIY masks to trust.
- •/r/thatHappenedHave you ever been on the Internet and someone tells a story and everyone is clapping/liking their status and you just know that it's $100% fake as shit? Well, post it here! These are some of the most cringe posts and I waste so much time reading them.
- •/r/DogShowerThoughtsSo there's a sub called "showerthoughts" where people post random thoughts like "becoming an adult feels like slowly being put in a managerial position you didn't really want." Then there's dogshowerthoughts, a brilliant parody of the same sub.
- •/r/awwA very popular subreddit filled with cute picture of people's animals. Here's one from today:
- •/r/PeaceCorpsI'm interested in doing this in the future and this has been a great place to get info. Subreddits exist for most topics you're interested in—though it may not be active!
- •/r/PointlessStoriesExactly what it sounds like.
- •/r/booksA very popular subreddit where people discuss books. I'm a huge lurker here but I don't post a whole lot due to how big it is
- •/r/LI.ST ???Not sure if it's a thing yet...
