Resume Membership on Medium?

Disclosure: I never had a paid membership; I was gifted one by Medium after a successful piece I published in 2018. “Successful” here means it earned me north of $300 and attracted thousands of readers and claps. I should also note that my successful story, after it drew a respectable amount of external traffic, was selected for “editorial polishing” and promotion at Medium.
