After reading all the responses I’m going to rollback my decision to leave DEV. My goal with blogging is to make my content available to as many people as possible. DEV provides a community & RSS feed and that’s more important than an email list.
So, I’ll continue to cross post!
I began my DEV journey in December of 2018. DEV provided a safe community where I could share my blogs and connect with like-minded developers.
I have long-enjoyed the platform and appreciate how responsive the moderators are as it pertains to Code of Conduct violations.
DEV helped me get my blogging career off the ground. At the time of this post I have 14,756 followers of DEV. But I finally feel that it's time to commit to my own personal blog. I will be removing my blogs from DEV and Medium.
There was no drama or conflict with this decision; it's simply a goal of mine to have all of my blogs under my own namespace and today I'm making that leap of faith.
I'm currently in the midst of migrating all of my blogs from DEV/Medium to my personal blogging site Compiled and once the migration is complete I will archive my accounts.
I want to say a huge thanks to the DEV team for providing me with the opportuntity to build my platform but it's time to spread my wings and build my own platform.
You're welcome to join my mailing list and receive updates when I post new blogs on Compiled.
Thank you all for the love and support.
