The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
One of the nice things about the Internet is that there are so many people sharing what they are doing. One of the not so nice things is that it is often hard to find these things. Sure, you can search, but that requires you to have some idea of what you are looking for. Serendipitous findings rarely occur.
That’s one reason why I monitor a couple of reddit sites. Reddit is
“an entertainment, social networking service and news website where registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links”
It’s a bit like a huge forum site, but the up- and downvotes make it a bit easier to find interesting content. Personally, I find the following subreddits quite interesting:
“For those who appreciate simplicity in any form.”
“Onebagger: an ideal which represents a minimalist who wants everything they own to fit into a single bag (like a backpack).”
“Live in your van, car or truck or want to? Need tips or help on making it work as you travel or just stay in one spot? Join us and learn or give help to others who do the same.”
“A resource for living large in small spaces. Links to blogs and sites that promote the tiny or small house movement. While not for everyone, interest in small and tiny houses is growing.”
Some really interesting subreddits. There are others that are of interest, of course, so have fun exploring.
