this way seems like an extra step that you need to make before the post. You always need to get the draft id before it posts.
It doesn't seem like it is. It clearly is 🙄. Unfortunately it's the best I could come up with as dev.to do not use UUIDs. Otherwise it'd have been easy to generate one 🤷♂️ here the only way to automate that part would be to correlate the blog post title but it'd be an issue if you update it (which is obviously not great). As it's a one time thing for an article, I think it's not too bad either though
