If you’re as big a fan of Reddit as I am or are you just coming across it, these few subreddits are a must to make your reddit browsing the most fulfilling.
Reddit is one of the best sites that can transform itself to anything you like. It can be a personal growth website, or a news website or someplace you just go to browse memes. Subreddits are communities concerned with particular topics you may be interested in, they can be about a million things. There is one subreddit dedicated entirely to chubby cats (r/Chonkers)
Why follow subreddits?
Almost all accounts on Reddit do not associate their real names with the accounts, the anonymity enables you to explore any subreddit that you like. The in depth discussions and with numerous points of view even enables many members to seek advice on subreddits such as r/relationship advice.
Because it is not a social media website, although you still can make friends, you feel free to release your thoughts and content without feeling judged personally. This is one of the many reasons why I love Reddit.
Here are some of my favourite communities you can explore:

Movie details is for fans of any film genre who find joy in knowing the nitty gritty of movies that most people just gloss over.
Sometimes we all come across things we wish we never saw, eyebleach is the perfect subreddit for these instances. The happy content on this subreddit can make you forget that cringe-worthy thing that you just saw.
I hope these amazing communities encourage you to be a part of reddit if you are not already. But keep in mind that the redditors, despite divided in interests, have certain unspoken rules of using Reddit. After being a member for almost two years I have found that you must avoid using unnecessary emojis in your posts and comments. It is looked down upon those that steal memes from reddit and post them to Instagram and those that repost things that are already popular and not their original content.
During this difficult quarantine time, I hope you find solace in these communities and you feel at home. Have fun!
