A few years ago, I read an article that advocated paying attention to your internal monologue — -we all have one, it said. I was a little surprised to find out that my internal monologue consists almost entirely of song lyrics!
Some time early in April of this year, I decided to cancel my membership to Medium. I went through the steps, and finally reached a screen that confirmed my cancellation, and said that since my fee had already been charged for April, my membership would end in May.
But guess what? I’m still getting notifications and newsletters, not to mention the five bucks that was charged to my card. So here’s the challenge: try to cancel your membership. I think Medium’s business model is the same as the Hotel California: You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave. (Look up the rest of the lyrics for a more complete metaphor.)
