How to get data from my Strapi Cloud into separate project via api call (http request)?

I have an existing Next.js project with marketing pages, auth, and custom functionality…and I want to use Strapi as the CMS for my blog.

I have a couple demo articles setup in my Strapi Cloud account that I can see in my Admin portal.

Question: What Endpoint do I need to query using my API Key to get that data into my Next.js app? Or is this not possible?

This is an example of the Strapi Cloud hosted URL. (https://creative-cats-cccffffccc.strapiapp.com).

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Any help here would be appreciated.

I don’t understand why it seems I need to spin up a SECOND next.js application to have an API that I can query from my Strapi content.

Since everything is being hosted in Strapi cloud, I should be able to query an API with my API Key and grab the data easily.

Every example I see has people querying the data from localhost.
