Chat GPT - Magic or a robot villain?
I, like many people, have seen the recent news articles about the changing nature of journalism with the advent of AI, specifically, the
launch of the Chat GPT software. There has been talk of AI replacing many jobs, including bookkeeping and accounting, for years so my
in-built cynicism kicked in and I thought “How good can the writing be?”. I am also fond of any new app so I thought I’d take Chat GPT for a
test drive this week and give it the opportunity of writing the Appy blog.
I found Chat GPT an easy sign up and currently has a free version to play with. Great for someone who wants a trial. It is also easy
to use. The topic I requested was:-
“Write me a chatty blog about using Chat GPT for writing blogs”.
The results are below. I think I have been replaced. I may never write my own blogs again.
"Are you looking for a way to make your blog writing process easier and more efficient? Look no further than Chat GPT!
As a language model trained by OpenAI, Chat GPT is capable of generating human-like text that can be used to write blogs on virtually
any topic. Whether you're a professional writer looking to save time or a beginner blogger who needs a little help getting started, Chat
GPT is an excellent tool to have in your arsenal.
So how exactly can Chat GPT help you write better blogs? Here are a few ways:
- Generating Ideas
One of the most challenging parts of writing a blog is coming up with a topic or angle to write about. With Chat GPT, you can input a
general idea or keyword, and it will generate a list of related topics to write about. You can then use these ideas as a starting point for
your blog post, ensuring that you never run out of inspiration.
- Improving Writing Quality
If you struggle with writing, Chat GPT can help improve the quality of your blog posts. Simply input your rough draft or a few bullet
points, and Chat GPT will generate suggestions for sentence structure, grammar, and word choice. You can then use these suggestions to
refine your writing and make your blog posts more polished and professional.
- Saving Time
Let's face it, writing a blog can be a time-consuming process. With Chat GPT, you can save time by using its auto-complete feature.
Simply input the first few words of a sentence, and Chat GPT will generate the rest for you. This can help speed up your writing process,
allowing you to produce more blog posts in less time.
- Adding Personality
While Chat GPT is excellent at generating human-like text, it's still a machine. However, you can make it work for you by adding your
personality to the generated text. You can do this by adjusting the tone and style of the text to match your writing style. This way, you
can use Chat GPT to generate content that is unique to you and your brand.
In conclusion, Chat GPT is an excellent tool for bloggers of all levels. Whether you're looking for inspiration, help with writing, or a
way to save time, Chat GPT can help. So why not give it a try and see how it can transform your blog writing process? Good luck!"
Despite its amazing talent scaring the beejeebies out of me, we at Appy have also trialled the software for difficult emails, requests
for information and proposals. If you ever are stuck for written words, give it a crack. It might just jolt you out of writers block.
