It was about as fun a discovery (or reminder, as it were) as you'd imagine, seeing the transaction go through on my mobile phone heading home from dinner.

$239 and some odd cents later, here we are. I'm the proud owner of 12 months of LinkedIn's "Premium" membership service.

It was my own doing, of course. It started as a 30-day free trial meant to transition into a paid subscription at the end, as trials typically do. I knew this going into it. "I'll cancel before... I'll remember!!!" I told myself. (Why are we so good at self-deception?)

Pay attention to your casual commitments. Set reminders for your trials so you can unsubscribe if you so choose. Set. Reminders.

For now? I guess lemonade is back on the menu...
