Thanks for clarification. And I'd like to clarify one more thing - crossposting is okay as long as it's crosspost from my personal blog and not other blogging/dev platform? Also, what do you mean by crossposting - copying and reformatting text or throwing a link with a thumbnail?

Cross-posting an entire article is okay, even if it's from another blogging platform (IE Medium). Make sure to make use of the canonical_url feature to ensure there's no SEO impact.

We do prefer that people share the entire article, rather than only providing a "preview" and then linking to a hosted article elsewhere.

Hope that helps!
