I see that there are lower reviews for Medium.com on other subjects, and I have to admit that I have only ever gone to medium.com for one purpose - to look for excellent resources on Computer Science and Software Engineering and Development.

The computer science resources on their news site are amazing. You can find everything from tutorials, to introductions to new technology, to new use cases for existing tech. I have used medium.com as a resource extensively for my computer science master's and have received no criticism from any professor on the validity/accuracy of the posts.

This website does what it does well. You can easily find the person you are looking to sponsor and there's no problem cancelling a current subscription. It makes communication easy and it's nice how the creators can lock/unlock posts for specific tiers.

I remembered a few weeks ago that I used to love StumbleUpon. It was a service that introduced you to all sorts of new concepts, websites, ideas, and fascinating learning opportunities that were unfamiliar and amazing. I joined Mix as it stated it was the replacement for StumbleUpon. They have hardly any content. Over the past 2 weeks, I've basically seen the same posts again and again and the posts they have are lackluster, coming from the same websites. I remember that StumbleUpon had so much content, that it was impossible to see it all. What happened?

I've ordered from them a few times. It's a bit strange in that you don't know the exact amount you're going to pay because it depends on the EXACT weight that they send, but once you understand and agree to that they have fairly unbeatable prices.

Really great for yarn spinners and felters.

Tip for consumers:
If you're learning how to spin, the 1lb domestic is hard to beat for $7.50 per pound!

Products used:
I ordered their merino (which I loved) and their standard domestic 56s as well as many others. So far my favorite is the merino but their suggestion to start with the domestic was perfect.

So we have ordered 2 murals from them so far (see below). Both of them were their removable peel and stick ones.

The first one had a lot of issues and was very frustrating (it was the floor-to-ceiling wall-to-wall one waterfall one). It took 4 hours to install each panel and it basically reminded me of installing a terrible quality phone screen protector with tons of bubbles.

But it looked awesome and removed completely cleanly with no issues.

Ok, so after we moved, we got another one. It was MUCH easier to install than the first time. I'm not sure if they improved their product or we just knew what to expect.

Here are some pro-tips:
1) Follow the instructions exactly, make sure you clean the wall
2) Do NOT use the tool (the plastic thing) it comes with. All it will do is puncture the mural, scratch it up, and cause bubbles. Just use your hands.

5 stars because our dining room looks fantastic and they really do provide a quality product even though it does require a bit of practice.

Those that are posting below are referring to a specific shop and not Etsy itself, which is a little unfair. Etsy is a website that effectively allows people to open up their own stores and sell their goods (like Ebay, except it specializes with homemade, crafted products).

I have had so much success with Etsy, purchasing a number of items over the years. Recently, I got to see the other side of Etsy with their case system.

What happens if a store doesn't send you what you pay for? You open up a case. The vendor has 5 days to respond to your case and resolve the issue without Etsy needing to intervene. The shop that I was having problems with did not respond, so I escalated my case.

Etsy then responded that the seller had two additional days to either send me what I purchased or refund me. If not, they said that they would immediately refund me, and shut down their shop until they reimbursed Etsy for their funds. I was blown away by the customer service that Etsy provided and I really do encourage people to keep shopping here.

I ordered something on December 5th, 2018. They said it shipped on December 7th.

I e-mailed them on February 16th asking where my order was. I did understand that it was coming from China. The tracker at the time still said it was on the way.

They responded and said "Thanks for contacting us. I total understand that you need the order urgently. I just checked with the shipping company, everything goes well with your package and we will accelerate the delivery for you. You can also track it online now, here is the tracking information, "

What did they mean accelerate it? You can't accelerate a package that has already been shipped and is on the way. I realized that they never actually shipped it.

I wrote back with their policy, "We promise 50% refund if the shipping time is beyond the promised latest deliver deadline for 15 days and 100% refund if beyond 30 days." Note that they did not uphold this policy until I stated it back to them.

It was beyond 30 days. They wrote back and did refund my order. The refund did go through.

Magically, the shipment that was in process from China to me disappeared. Which makes sense, as they never actually sent the order.

I was looking for an alternative for Boomerang and this far surpasses my expectations! I love that the free edition is good for forever, and lets you track and snooze an unlimited number of e-mails.
