Im building a simple portfolio website using Next.js and all the content is static, what's the best between Contentful and Sanity.

I really like the self-hosting and custom layout with sanity however I don't think time customizing is worth it anymore.

Any thoughts

Hi Community, Would like to ask for advice from people familiar with those tools. We are a small self-funded startup and initial cost for us is very important at that stage. That's why we are leaning towards Sanity. The CMS will be used to power our website and flutter cross-platform mobile applications.
