A Request


If any of my readers would like to occasionally upload one of my posts to Reddit that would really help me. Here’s all you would need to do.

  1. Open a Reddit account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Go to the subreddit “philosophy” as they have by far the most readers. (You could also post to “history of ideas,” “philosophy of science,” “history of ideas,” etc.)
  3. Put a link to any of my posts, past or present.
  4. If by chance someone has already posted the link just choose another one.
  5. Do this no more than 1 or 2 times a month.

Reddit is the best source for driving traffic to my site, and that helps me sell a few books thus defraying the costs of hosting the site. Feel free to email and let me know you did this.

thanks, John

  1. Best I can do is place your articles that are science-oriented on my Facebook Timeline.

  2. I am completely adverse to “social” media, but if I were on Reddit I would do it. Never had an account on twitter, instagram, tok tok and whatever else, either….I’d rather eat glass 🙂

  3. I tried to post a link to your article on Dan Dennett (who I met many years ago while he was teaching his first job at UC Irvine and I was teaching my first at CSU Fullerton). But to my surprise the link was twice rejected by Reddit.

  4. weird. maybe the “philosophy” subreddit just won’t post from my site.thanks so much for trying though. There is no problem posting to other subreddits though like academic philosophy or history of ideas or stoicism or philosophy of science.

  5. How about posting your links in r/Longevity? That’s the only sub I read and follow.
