Discussion on: Should you use Medium or dev.to?

I have a few posts published on both platforms, and I feel like it's nearly impossible to gain traction in Medium without being behind the paywall (which I disagree with entirely), so I still post my articles there, but Dev is my first option.

Why do you post there if you dont agree with their hostility towards users?

Good question. I don't have a clear answer, but it doesn't cost me anything so I guess why not?

Good Backlinks and views to my own blog are the only reason I see on posting at Medium. If I didn't had one, I wouldn't be there.

I didn't mention it, but I do have a blog of my own, so yeah you pretty much summed it up better than I was able to.
