Thanks Drew. Nice points you brought out. Also, I just loooove the design of your blog.
I recognized myself at "Easy deploys" :D! I built the MVP of my new blog using Gatsby and StrapiCMS, but don't have any automated deploys in place. Atm, I find it much easier to just post to Dev.to and later just copy the content to my blog...I'd like to make it the other way around in the long term, but for that "Easy deploys" seems crucial...

Thanks!! I've used Strapi before. What do you think of it?

Be sure to mark your canonical URLs in dev.to so you don't get a SEO penalty for duplicate content.

Ty for the tip. Will make use of it!

Regarding Strapi...I'll probably write a longer post about it sometime, but atm I'm impressed. It's lightweight, functions properly and all functions it's lacking can be more-or-less easily be written by yourself through plugins or Bootstraping + the community is really helpful.

I like the ability to extend Strapi. That’s what made it attractive to me. Glad you’re enjoying it!
