The blog posts of this page are fetched via WordPress and GraphQL.

There are three options as to where to write and manage blog posts when building a Gatsby website:

  1. Markdown.md, which for now is my second favorite.
  2. Contenful, not my favorite. Interface is nice and easy to use, but maybe I am more used to the WordPress experience.
  3. WordPress as a headless CMS. Currently working with this version. My favorite.

Something I don’t like about Contenful is that links cannot use target=”_blank” and that is a must, in part to help SEO and it’s also a personal taste. I don’t like when you click on a link and it opens on the same tab.

Let’s try with WordPress.


This personal portfolio is alive thanks to Gatsby, Contentful, Netlify and Andrew Mead wonderful tutorial.
