I have spent the past decade writing on a wordpress blog because it lets me write without thinking about the backend. All I have to do is flip open a laptop or iPad and start writing. I’m not going to say that you should use the stack that I’m using but I would recommend going with whatever you feel has the least friction.

You’re writing on dev.to, right now. What’s stopping you from just writing on here and then syndicating elsewhere? I know from experience that it has great APIs.

Control of your own data is nice. I really dislike WordPress personally but I understand that it's the standard at to speak.

I've doubt dev.to is going anywhere anytime soon but that's happened to be enough times that having a github with all my content feels like a really nice pattern.

I write here on dev.to and just use the api to show on my website. baraus.dev

Have you found the automatic connection to Stackbit? It's in beta, but it's pretty cool for a beta.
