If you are, or ever have, subscribed to Medium, do or did you find the $5/month, $50/year worthwhile compared to other options? Why or why not? I’ve seen a few articles that interest me but I’ve used up my free quota.
From my side, Medium is showing a too wide range of Information, from too many source, you are often hard to verify.
It’s like you stand on a marketplace, and everybody is telling you his or her opinion, no matter if you are interested, or not, or if he/she has real facts, or not.
It would not be worth for me, to pay a fee for that.
I’m not being facetious when I say I have no idea what I’m missing by not subscribing. I don’t even know the limits of the free tier, because I always seem to be at 1 or 2 out of 3 free articles and never blocked. I’m guessing that’s because I tend to read Medium articles when linked from outside Medium.
I’d like to think there is really good content I’m missing by not paying, just because I want everything to be good, but I don’t know how to find it.
I do miss when they were hiring talented writers and paying them to create magazines. They abandoned that strategy in the last couple years.
this is exactly what I do, I admit that I am a cheapscape. However, I think only a few articles from Medium are worth ready and are nice to read, not critical. So I remain unsubscibed after paying for one year
