Yeah i got “invited” too.
Couple days ago, I read this really dramatic and emotional article on getting invited by medium to pay them money every month… more of a poetic advertisement ( course, we are dealing with writers here , and they well could have had an emotional breakthrough / creative epiphany having medium ask them to pay.)
After having read this A-MA-ZING reaction this person had to the invite ( he even said he would have underlined everything in the invitation if he could have ) I was sort of expecting nothing short of marvelous …
And then I read it.
Yeah, so, medium wants money.
The fact that it’s medium and you write on it doesn’t make that any different . The fact that they don’t advertise or “want you to get lost on the site all day scrolling” (?!?) doesn’t make that different.
I was just happy to see I could keep using without paying.
It’s slightly frightening how much people are affected by this. Like on a visceral level.
Geez.. come on.. people.
It’s gonna be alright!
