Dev.to is better than Medium for code blogging.

Stephen Jensen @stephenjensen

I have used medium as a place to publish my blogs and published several Code Mochi posts there. I made sure to set the canonical urls so that my domain, not Medium would get the credit for posting them.

Unfortunately, my traffic results were just not very impressive on Medium. I stumbled on dev.to and I found that to be a much more vibrant community. Here are examples (results updated as of Sept 19th, 2019 to prove a point):

Prisma 2 Sneak Peak Post http://bit.ly/sm-snkpk :
Medium: 20 views
Dev.to: 141 views

How to add sitemaps to React http://bit.ly/sm-stmps :
Medium: 10 views
Dev.to: 268 views

Such a difference! ❤️ Going forward, I'll stick to Dev.to + codemochi.com for the homes of my posts.
