Hi, Chris. Thanks for the suggestion.

But you end up with several comment options, right? I saw that in your website you have Disqus and you have a duplicate of the post here on dev.to, with native comments from dev.to.

I don't want that. I ended up here at dev.to trying to figure out the best way to have both more traffic and comments on my blog/posts. What I did (in fact just did, see this commit) was to move my posts to dev.to and on the blog my posts are now just excerpts of the posts. To the excerpt I added a property with the link to the dev.to post.

Take a look: drugowick.dev/ (if you haven't already).

This way I have more traffic (I can say that with confidence since we're discussing over my post, hahahaha) and only one place to manage the discussions.

This added a complication, which is to create the excerpts on my blog after every post here on dev.to. I could maybe iterate over the RSS from dev.to on my Jekyll blog (since dev.to API doesn't provide an excerpt) or even automate the excerpt creation... but that's for another time... hehehe.
