Let’s help the T-shirt Subreddit grow

t-shirt reddit

Reddit is rapidly becoming my one of my favourite websites, if I’m bored I know exactly where to go to waste an hour, or to make sure I don’t get to sleep early, ever, and just lie in bed staring at articles and comment threads on my iPhone.

Reddit is a huge site, so I presumed that it would have an active subreddit (if you aren’t aware of Reddit, a subreddit is basically a sub-forum to the whole site) dedicated to t-shirts, yet the largest one I found had less that 100 people that had subscribed to it, and it wasn’t very active at all (there were posts on the frontpage that were over 6 months old). I think that’s a bit of a travesty as Reddit could be a great place for t-shirt lovers, sellers, and designers, so I’m trying to make a concerted effort to get the place a bit more active and hopefully boost the number of people that subscribe to it. It’s a fairly self-serving aim since if it becomes popular I will be able to get HYA content seen by more people, but I think that it’s okay to help myself if I’m helping other people too.

Please check out the Tshirt Subreddit and subscribe if you’re a member there, if you’ve never visited Reddit before, my apologies, you won’t be getting much else done today.

    So if I’m a designer who sucks at marketing and just wants to show off my new t-shirt every other week or so, is that okay there? It says not to spam, but nobody really knows who I am so I doubt they’ll submit my stuff. Thanks.

    From what I can tell, yes, that’s okay, it would be better if you contributed more than just your own stuff, but at the moment the subreddit is so quiet that I think any submissions at all are welcome, and if people don’t like it they can always just downvote your submission anyway so there’s no harm in submitting.
