This was a triumph

What has Bloop meant to you? Have you met anyone from here? Has Bloop helped you get through your dark times and has it inspired you?

I wouldn't say it's "helped me get through my dark times," or anything like that. I was on here quite a bit while I was in high school, probably every single day, but despite how much of a part of my life that it actually was, it didn't have much of an impact on other parts of my life at the time. But I do have warm feelings, looking back at the amount of time I spent here, interacting with people on my diary, the forums, and the chat. I'm just really worried/concerned that the 2020 era of the Internet doesn't have any place for a site like Bloop Diary, when blogging has evolved to integrate with social media as much as possible, to the point of almost being another form of social media. Thinking like Tumblr, or microblogging like Twiter (to an extent). In the heyday before social media, you were looking for people to read, and looking forward to interacting with strangers, but with the overabundance of information about others, it's almost like I'm struggling to find the personal lives of anonymous strangers sort of mundane, and difficult to read, especially if I haven't interacted with you much in the past. This isn't a criticism toward Bloop at all, but more of a criticism of the internet that's evolved around it. The only concern that I have for Bloop is that it might be a nostalgia project, rather than an ambitious attempt to get it back up off the ground. But we'll definitely see what happens. I'll be here to see it through, and should it come to it, I'll be at its side when it breathes its final breath.

I personally think that the likes of mainstream social media platforms have gotten too far away from what I think is "social".

Bloop has and always has had a more of a personal feel. Yes, there are cliques that build, but that is also true in real life.

Let's hope it all goes well eh?

I really hope Bloop can blend to the times, as I want a social media that isn’t entirely ruined by the presence of those I know IRL - I like having a place I can write stuff that they will hopefully never see. The thought of combining the two makes me feel nauseous! 😂 What a disaster that would be!

This place is more personal. I hate FB and am only there to post pictures and be semi-social to old family friends

if you can do both you make more money. but money isn't my primary focus althuogh it should be. its the people i meet and the friends i make doing it.

I got to watch Bloop be created from the very beginning. It was a cool thing to see. I remember being one of the first members and thinking it was going places. I still love coming here, even if I don't write nearly as often as I used to.
