For the time being, I plan on keeping my articles for free, so people can read regardless.
I want people to be able to access my articles, medium account or not. I do notice they allow 3 articles per month.
When I first signed up for Medium back in 2016, I enjoyed writing and not worrying about buying anything.
I miss the days of mostly free reading.
In the past year or so, they really been pushing the Medium membership. As you know, if someone has to pressure me, I lose interest.
Why I would consider signing up:
I bookmarked so many articles that I won’t ever be able to get to them all having 3 free reads a month.
I’ve discovered so many writers on this platform! Either I find them at random or they like one of my posts and I look them up. I usually go to the VERY first post they wrote (which takes me a long time, sorry y’all). And literally work my way up to their current articles. If it appears I haven’t read something of yours in a long time, my bad! Sometimes as I scroll the page crashes, and I gotta try to get to your first article again all over. For the people I’m following on here, FYI: It’s going to take a while to get to your articles and I hope Medium does something where it’s easier to get to older articles.
You will know it’s me who invaded your article, because I’m a highlighting queen.
Currently, I have no interest in buying and I’ll let you know if that changes.
If you like what you’ve read, please recommend it so others can read it as well. Please tell me what you want me to write about here!
Interested in what I done? Check out my LinkedIn profile I barely use lol. I’ll update it to add the new current businesses I’m working on one of these days.
