Where’s my Redditors at? (one heck of a travel resource)

Readers and people who somehow randomly found my blog,

I want to share a crazy addicting website with you… reddit.  For those of you who don’t use this website you are missing out!  reddit.com is a unique content and social site.  Unlike most other sites, you can use what is called subreddits to manage the content you see in your feed.  So if you like funny stuff, you can add in the subreddit r/funny and voilà, a bunch links to funny content all over the internet.

Now I am sure you are wondering, “Justin, is this a travel blog or a commercial for reddit?”  Well, both (though not officially!).  Reddit is a fantastic resource to consult when you are trying plan your travels.  Here are some subreddits you should look at?

  • r/travel – the biggest and most popular subreddit on travel.  The posts are helpful and inspiring!  You can ask a question and within minutes you’ll have people answering.  Definitely check this one out!  Make sure you look at their sidebar on the right side of the page.  They have a large list of resources including couchsurfing 101, low-budget travel, and train travel info.
  • r/backpacking – As you’ll find with reddit, subreddits get more and more specific.  This is a great resource specifically for backpacking.
  • r/TravelProTips – Great resource for tips on unique ideas for packing, tricks to traveling, travel safety, and saving money.

But here’s some big news… I just created a travel genre subreddit a couple days ago and I want you to be a part of it!

The subreddit’s name is: r/Sojourners

If you search for it you will find one that says: “This is a subreddit for people who travel, not merely as tourists but as sojourners. Post about places you have been, are currently in, or are wanting to go.”

I want you to be a part of this online community.  We can post our travel pictures here and share our experiences and dreams with each other.  This is another platform, apart from our blogs, to network and help one another.  One of the big things that makes this subreddit different from r/travel (listed above) is that travel blogs are welcome to be posted and linked to here.  I want you to post your blogs on here so that we can all easily see each others posts, along with any other content we find on our travels!  The only rule on blog posting is that your blog has to be good and interesting (which I’m sure it is)!  If you are advertising cheap flights to Denmark, your posts won’t last long… but if you’re sharing about your trip to guam, I want this to be a place that helps tell your stories, and helps others see it!

So join reddit, join my subreddit, and we can continue networking, helping each other plan our travels, and (most importantly) keep sharing all of our stories!

See you all on reddit,

Justin

    I have a friend or two that are really into reddit and have found lots of cool things on there but I just can’t seem to get into it. I’m a more a StumbleUpon kinda gal. 😉
