Collecting Resources And Inspiration On The Fly

A few weeks ago I started using reddit. I didn’t know anything about it but I did recognize the blue-alien-like reddit trademark from various other sites but never payed any further attention to it. When you start using reddit and browsing around on the website it can feel a bit daunting seem a bit 90ish, but it works really well when you get used to it.

About a month ago I purchased an iPhone and I have come to fancy it very much as a source of finding inspiration and resources on the fly – anywhere. While I RSS subscribe on cool sites – I like to use Twitter, Flipboard, Zite, Pinterest, Fancy and now reddit app when I’m on the phone – and combining it with Pocket. I think Pocket is a brilliant app for collecting your articles and inspiration in one place and is integrated in over 300 applications. You can install the Pocket on your computer and when you are on the go you can easily save interesting stuff to Pocket – as it is compatible with your Flipboard, Zite, reddit etc. Then it will automatically sync with you latest added feeds when you open Pocket on your Mac and you can see that showreel or epic cinematic on a proper screen.

Back to reddit. What I think works really great for reddit is the amount of activity (mostly clever) and easy browsing – and it works just like RSS for all the web when you subscribe to a reddit. Content is provided by all users and is user rated – and you can collect reddit karma which symbolizes how good the user has done for the reddit community. It has over 200.000 reddits (/topics) in all kind of forms – like /r/Fitness, /r/Survival, /r/Jobs etc.

On top of scouting the web for the newest motion graphics and tutorials I like to look out for random inspiration as well. Reddit’s like /r/GetMotivated, /r/Productivity, /r/Fitness, /r/LifeProTips has become immediate favorites and I have only recently begun using it. I can see a lot of potential – but also a lot of time being wasted on reddit as you can keep on diving further and further in – so use it wisely! ;)
