What do you use to crosspost?


POSSE is an abbreviation for Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere, a content publishing model that starts with posting content on your own domain first, then syndicating out copies to 3rd party services with permashortlinks back to the original on your site.


I use Hugo to generate the blog, store source in github, host it with netlify.

At the moment I semi-automatically crosspost to (because my RSS isn’t full articles, as well I need to add tags and cover image).

What I want? #

I want fully automated posting to 3-rd party platforms (from CI server). Bonus points: if it will update articles when I edit original posts.

What would you use to do this?

Where do I want to crosspost? #

  • (for sure)
  • Medium (various Medium communities)
  • Hacker News
  • Reddit (maybe, I don’t use it)
  • Lobsters (maybe, I have no account)
  • hashnode (saw it recently, have no idea what is it)

Where would you crosspost?

PS #

In case you wonder why:

  • platforms can delete your posts, for example, Tumblr incident
  • one platform can block another platform, for example, Reddit shadow bans
  • paywalls, for example, Medium place articles behind the paywall
  • your posts can be blocked for geo-political reasons
  • etc.
