Explore some discussion boards that are new to you! You never know what new things you'll learn, what new friends you'll make, what kinds of new little communities you'll help build.

Below is a long, long, long list of boards worthy of many people's attention. It's not comprehensive, but perhaps you'll stumble upon a few interesting nooks or crannies. Some of these boards are woefully neglected -- if so and they're for a topic you're interested in, post a message or two anyway, as it might help attract more readers. For every new board to thrive, it needs a few people to take a chance and start a discussion. Oftentimes, a board does have a lot of followers -- they're just not speaking up, as they don't think anyone else is there.

One good strategy is to scan through the list, clicking in and out of various boards. When you click into a promising board, click the red heart to make it one of your favorite boards. Then you can go back later to read through it at your convenience and see if you like it. Keeping it as a favorite will remind you to drop in now and then, and you'll see when new unread messages are posted there, too.

I encourage you to scroll through to the end of this long post. The 111th and 52nd boards might be of great interest to you -- you never know!

Apologies in advance for the hundreds of interesting boards I've neglected to list. Feel free to list more -- especially on the first board below.
