A New Friend
It has been roughly 4 weeks since I have started using BULB regularly. It has been a great pleasure being able to express my own thoughts and opinions through articles, which is something I have not done on a social public platform in a very long time. Furthermore, reading other people's content has helped me learn so much about topics I would otherwise not be exposed to, such as cryptocurrency, leadership, and education. It has also been a very humbling experience, as I have realised how intelligent and knowledgeable people are. I'm glad that BULB exists so these people can share their ideas here. Just imagine, 4 weeks ago, I would not have known about any of this, and I would have simply carried on with my normal life. I am wiser now because of BULB.
Recently, I have encountered another user on BULB by the ID of "Don't Mind If I Do". This user seems to be very active on BULB much like myself, and is constantly providing me with support, knowledge, and laughter on almost every comment. I have also come to notice that we have similar interests, such as a keenness to learn more about Web 3.0 and soccer. I didn't expect anything like this when I first started BULB, and felt slightly isolated at times due to everyone being de-identified and whatnot. But through online interaction and common interests, I have realised that you don't need to know a person's name or face to truly feel a connection with them.
I think I have found my first BULB friend.
