I maintain a personal blog. I migrated it from WordPress to Jekyll then Hugo. I have 12 years worth of posts. I don't have comments.

I syndicate a portion of my posts to DEV, via RSS.

DEV provides two things:

  1. Canonical URLs that can point to my original site.
  2. A means of bringing my posts to an audience/community with a built in comments tool.

This allows my blog to be an Everything/Nothing style blog, so I can write poetry, RPG material, and software material. And, via syndication, allows me to converse with folks who might be interested in one slice of what I'm writing.

I've only posted a few times. I mostly browse the posts of others while drinking a morning cup of tea or at other random times. It is nice to interact with post authors and other commenters in the comments. Dev's community building focus makes this a mostly positive experience.
