IMO that first deck is the easy way to go.

I would lay out the area you want to build the deck and then level it as best you can first. The blocks are good if you need that little extra to level it out or if you just don’t want the joists touching the ground, but honestly, with ground contact lumber I would level the dirt and put the frame directly on the ground.

BTW, if your ground is on too much of a slope to level out and you want to use those blocks, this video is pretty good at how to do it…. start just after the 2 minute mark.
