Reddit is one of the most popular news aggregation sites in the world. We won’t make a big mistake if we say that it is also a social media site, although quite different from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and similar ones you might know and use on an everyday basis. The great part for us is that, among many, there are some great WordPress subreddits as well.
According to Wikipedia pages about Reddit, the popular network had an average of 542 million monthly visitors for 2016. That makes the site #11 most visited site in the States, and #25 ranked site in the world.
Just one of the reasons why the site is so popular is its ability to collect everything about anything. On Reddit, users create and aggregate their own content. The content is categorized in so-called subreddits which are actually communities for themselves. For example, you can find subreddits about education, entertainment, image sharing, discussions, technology, and much more. To be more specific, Reddit counts more than 11,000 subreddits which are created by users.
If you are still not familiar with Reddit, we hope the few introductory sentences got you interested. Not because we’re trying to promote Reddit as is, but because there are some great WordPress subreddits which can help you with your blog quite a lot. Still not quite sure how it works? Check the attached video which explains everything.
Unfortunately, there are not as many WordPress-related subreddits as we’d like to see there, but there are some that will help you read more interesting stuff about WordPress, learn a thing or two, or maybe even allow you to help a fellow Redditor with something you know about the platform.
