This week, I want to show you that reddit’s not all that bad. There are some amazing learning opportunities on this website, which aren’t usually touched upon by most critics of reddit. Here you go, go learn something new!

1. /r/askscience – AskScience is a forum for answering science questions. It aims to promote scientific literacy by helping people understand the scientific process and what it can achieve.

– Similarly, there’s /r/askhistorians, and /r/askpolitics

2. /r/personalfinance – Get your financial house in order. Learn how to better manage your money and debt in both the short and long term. Find out how to save an emergency fund and invest for your future.

3. /r/todayilearned – For interesting new facts. You learn something new every day; what did you learn today?

4. /r/loseit – If you need to lose 2 pounds or 200, this is the reddit for you.

– Similarly, /r/fitness is great for learning about how to get in shape and get your summer body ready for next year.

5. /r/learnuselesstalents – Learn all sorts of things that make you stand out in a way that makes people go “that’s cool but why do you know that?”

6. /r/depthhub – DepthHub gathers the best in-depth submissions and discussion on Reddit. You can use the DepthHub as an alternative front page with high quality discussion and inquiry.

7. /r/getstudying – Tips and resources any student would love.

8. /r/homeworkhelp – Come here for homework help in most any field. They may not give you the direct answer, but they’ll definitely lead you onto the right track, and help you out.

9. /r/iwanttolearn – Have you ever wanted to learn a martial art, or to play the guitar, or how to program a computer? Have you had difficulty figuring out where to start, what path to take or just wanted some advice to get you to the next level? This is where to go.

 

That’s it for this time! I hope you learn something new (while procrastinating your work, obviously). You can also check out Part One of “Explore the Reddit” by clicking here.

Mariem El Tagoury

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here! If you want to contact me, my email is mariem.eltagoury@cairocontra.com; you can also use our contact form or email directly to admin@cairocontra.com
