What I learned from earning $1.70 on Medium in my first month

Let’s start out with what $1.70 means to me.

$1.70 USD is actually $2.31CAD,
probably enough for an off-brand chocolate bar at the dollar store.

$1.70 is 34% of my medium subscription,
and my first month was free, so I’ve already earned something extra there.
