Dev.to lets you reach a large audience instantly. But you don't control your audience and brand. 80% of the benefits go to Dev.to. 20% to you.

Substack lets you control your audience and your brand. But you have to slowly build your own audience. However, 80% of the benefits go to you. 20% to Substack.

Is there an opportunity to build a hybrid?

You get your own website (via a subdomain or your own domain name). Then the product aggregates articles, creates nice category pages, and helps you find audiences.

If a Dev.to or Substack employee is interested in this concept, please reach out! I'm thinking of building this hybrid myself or I can join your company to do it.
