re: Putting dev.to on your LinkedIn? VIEW POST


Eh, I'm a little sketched out at the idea simply because of how LinkedIn uses those kinds of experiences across the site. If someone clicks on dev.to, they'll see you as an employee of the company because that's how LinkedIn cross-references the experience section.

On the other hand, though, since LinkedIn added "types" of roles to the experience section, you aren't implying full-time employment. It could instead be something like Self Employed which is more true being a blogger without specific quality metrics. I wouldn't say Freelancer since there's no one judging the merit and worth of your work blogging to the void.

Thank you for this! This is a good point, and I had left that field blank exactly because of what you said, I didn't want to imply that I was a hired employee of the dev.to company. I will change it to self-employed.
