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.
