Upsides of using AI.

AI is the new revolution, and it’s no wonder why, it can be helpful for so many things:

  • Getting inspiration. I always rely on Chat-GPT when I lack ideas.

  • Content creation. You can use AI tools to create content, from images to quotes to long-form posts.

  • Improves SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Chat-GPT will use keywords to target your desired audience if you give it the right prompt.

  • Avoid repetitive tasks. If there’s anything you know you’ll have to do many times, your best ally will be an AI.

Downsides of using AI.

Although AI is an incredible tool, it’s still in its early stages. Therefore, it has some crucial flaws, that will kill your content, if you don’t fix them:

  • Quality. Most AI-generated content is usually too simple and doesn’t add much value.

  • Personality. AI doesn’t talk or, better said, write as we do. They don’t share their experiences or their feelings, which makes it boring to read.

  • Language. AI uses really precise and unnecessarily complex language, which no one uses in their daily life. You want your text to be as easy to understand as possible.

  • You won’t improve. Using AI to write instead of writing for yourself is killing your ability to become a “real” content creator.

How to use AI effectively.

If you’ve made it this far, you want to fix this issue.

The simple answer would be “Stop using AI”, but that doesn’t seem like the best idea. AI is unstoppable, so you better start taking advantage of it, but let’s do it the right way.

All you need to do is enhance AI benefits and fix its flaws. It’s easier said than done, so here is what you want to do.

Let’s say you wanted to write a post about AI. But you are unsure what to even write about. Using AI tools like Chat-GPT would be your best option. But you don’t want to ask him to write a post for you, you only want to take inspiration from him.

You should explain Chat-GPT your position, and make it understand what topics you usually write about. Then it will give you a whole list of ideas, if you don’t like any of the proposed ideas, repeat until it gives you one you love.

The next logical step would be to ask the AI, to write you a plan of what you need to write. Not the whole text, just an index with the key ideas.

Then you are set to start writing on your own, or you can ask Chat-GPT to write the post for yourself. If you choose the latter, then you are going to need to rewrite a lot of things. You want to make sure it’s easy to understand. For this, you want to delete all the overwhelming words and extra paragraphs. You also need to make it personal, you can achieve that by either talking in the first person or by sharing your own experience like I’m about to do.

My personal experience.

I’ve been using Chat-GPT since the first day it launched, and it has helped me a lot, I’ve used it to make class projects, and I’ve also used it to explain math and physics. Also, it has made me summaries of books and extracted the “golden nuggets “.

However, it has also had some fatal flaws. Sometimes it has completely missed the book summary and wrote things up, sometimes it completely goes off-topic. Other times it refuses to give me helpful answers due to its “woke” ideology.

But if there’s something I’ve learned after using Chat-GPT for so long. You must know something about the topic you want to write about, or you may end up making a fool of yourself. Also, you want to rephrase it, or even delete half of the content it gives. Moreover, when writing a prompt for it, the more detailed the better, it will save you countless hours, of going back and forth until it finally understands you.
