After viewing Geek Sugar’s list of Best Obscure Subreddits, I really wanted to share my own Favourite Subreddit list.
Did you know that Canadians spend more time on Reddit than any other country? It’s no wonder – Reddit is an amazing social network with so many niche communities of subreddits that often respond positively in discussions. However, it should be noted that there can be just as many many subreddits that can be considered inappropriate by some… you really can find anything and everything that you should see and want to unsee. It is the fact that Reddit would allow such a variety of subreddits to exist is the reason why it is an amazing community.

Second to the community discussions on Reddit, it is known for its great content which I will often see reposted on other social networks. If you want to see all that great content first – sign up and subscribe to my favourite subreddits:
- r/TodayILearned – Learn something new everyday in this subreddit, even if it is a random trivial fact like the world’s oldest backpacker at 89 years old has been travelling around the world for the last 30 years!
- r/LifeProTips – Learn how to make life easier with handy tips like creating an instant lantern with only a water bottle and a cell phone.
- r/Toronto – City-centric news and memes that only Torontonians would appreciate.

- r/IAmA – People in odd occupations, doing interesting things, or are famous do AMA in this subreddit. An AMA (Ask Me Anything) is an opportunity for the Reddit community can ask any and all sorts of questions.

- r/Hawkthorne – If you’re a fan of Community you’ll be happy to discover that the 8-bit game featured in an episode was actually created by a dedicated group of redditors that have used the power of crowdsourcing. What’s been amazing about this subreddit is that Community creator, Dan Harmon, did an AMA and revealed a part of the game that was never was created but wished it had been. This subreddit of developers and creators honored his wish and made his dreams come true.
