I'm kind of weird in that I bounced around from forum to forum, social site to social site, for the past decade and a half. I've hit some of the big ones, and ones so small I doubt if I named them anyone would recognize them. I'd usually stick around a certain site for a year or so, then when things started getting stale or repetitive, go somewhere new.
Something about Reddit was different. I've been on there for about four years, going through about a dozen accounts (for the sake of anonymity). For the longest time, I loved it. It was so big, there was always something new to discover. I'd stumble on subreddits that exposed me to new music, rekindled my love for old music that I forgot I enjoyed so much, discovered so many passing interests that I could experience vicariously through other posters without investing time, effort, or money on my own part. I could become a voice in smaller subreddits while staying completely anonymous in bigger ones. It had so much to offer.
Now though? It feels too big. Too weird. I've lost that sense of intimacy I've had in other communities. I think my current account there will be my last. Maybe Hubski will be my greener pastures, maybe I'll move on quickly, I don't know. I do know I don't regret the time I spent on Reddit, but I also know that once I finally do leave, I won't miss it.
