Keeping my Medium membership — for now

Keeping my Medium membership — for now

Colin Walker:

Although my Medium usage has significantly dropped off I had intended keeping my membership going. Then I realised something: I’ve only read one or possibly two members-only, funded stories.

Like Colin, I question the value of my Medium membership.

I became a Medium member the day memberships were announced. Since then, I’ve been tempted to cancel, simply because I don’t feel I’m missing much if I skip the “members only” content. The other members-only features are not compelling on their own, either.

Unlike Colin, I’m opting to keep my membership active — for now.

I admire that Medium is trying some new things. I like the idea of Medium. I can cancel any time, but for now $5/month is a small contribution toward their experiment.
