Hi, and welcome to dev.to! 👋🏼
To keep the user experience pleasant and allowing users to browse interesting content without having to leave the site, we encourage authors to post their content here rather than to link to external sources.
I understand, though, that you might want the posts to originate from your own blog. I feel the same way, which is why I use the canonical URL property on my posts and post them in their entirety. You can actually even set up your dev.to account to sync posts from an external RSS feed.
See dev.to/settings/publishing-from-rss for more info. 👍🏼
Thanks for the detailed explanation Simon.
