If you normally peruse Reddit on your PC via its desktop website, you can use the following method to create a post that is posted to your own profile or one that is posted to a particular subreddit.

    From the homepage, after you’ve logged in on Reddit.com: Select the Create post text box located at the top of your screen. Select the subreddit you want to post in (or choose your own profile) from the Choose a community drop-down menu.

    From an actual subreddit: Navigate to the subreddit you want to post in. Once you’re in the subreddit, you can start your post one of two ways. Select the Create post text box near the top of the subreddit page or choose the Create post button on the right side of the screen, within the subreddit’s sidebar.
