My friend Ken over at ThoughtLeadr introduced me to Reddit over the holidays, and I’ve been hooked ever since. What I once thought was just a haven for extremely techy individuals has turned out to be a great resource for information and social interaction on a variety of topics. I’m still learning the ropes, but chances are you’ll find a community as passionate about your interests as you are, whatever they may be.
While I haven’t had too much success finding fellow composers in a similar situation as myself, there are no shortage of musicians of varying ages and backgrounds who share their music, knowledge, and questions in the WeAreTheMusicMakers community. Whether you want to stay on top of great new music and artists, lend your expertise or services to musicians in need, or get some honest feedback on your latest project, WATMM is an excellent place to do so. You’ll likely be surprised at the authenticity of the responses you’ll get!
So check out Reddit. It’s not all about link sharing. You can find me there (predictably) under the handle “ProgressNotes”.
Fellow Redditors, what are some other great communities you’d recommend?
