I paid $50 to Medium just so they can bring back my “Write” button. For the longest time, it was “Resume membership”.

I’m sure there are other ways for me to start a new essay e.g. story.new, but this was familiar. I also didn’t enjoy being constantly prodded to resume my membership. It got really annoying.

I’ve convinced myself it’s because I like Medium, Ev, and appreciate the work that goes into making a good publishing tool, but I still feel swindled.

Anyway, congrats Medium. Yay one more subscriber.
