Pros and Cons of using Obsidian Publish to blog

This evening I’ve been experimenting with Obsidian Publish to publish a few blog entries to see if I can get a workable solution. Here’s what I know so far.

Pros

  • As all the writing occurs in Obsidian, everything I write is contained in the one environment. I don’t have to write here, copy there.
  • It is super-fast to link content.
  • I can link to content I’ve not yet written or published and as that content is developed, links will fill in automatically. I use indicators for pages that don’t exist.
  • Should I move a page from one "folder" to another, any URLs that have been shared with the old folder name will still work. Obsidian Publish takes care of all that. This means create flexibility as the site expands.
  • In conjuction with Obsidian Sync I can write and publish from multiple devices with ease.!
  • Page tagging is easy and because of the way Obsidian prompts for existing tags, means I’m less likely to have tag explosion.
  • Backlinks i.e., where on entry references another are automatically displayed without me needing to do anything.
