Blogging has long been a popular medium for individuals and businesses to share their knowledge, experiences, and perspectives. However, the meteoric rise of artificial intelligence (AI) language models like Chat GPT, Google’s Bard, worry content creators about the future of blogging. Will Chat GPT make blogging irrelevant? Is there still a place for human ingenuity and expertise in the world of content creation? My answer to those pertinent questions is a resounding no. Neither Chat GPT nor any other AI language model will eclipse blogging’s importance (at least not in the foreseeable future). Let’s explore three simple reasons this is the case.
First, AI language models don’t possess the same creative abilities humans have to create engaging blog posts. Blogging goes beyond simply writing content that matches a certain set of criteria or keywords. It’s about expressing your unique perspective, providing valuable insights, and building relationships with your readers. Humans can produce entirely new concepts by drawing on their cultural, social, and personal factors, whereas AI models generate novel outputs based on patterns and data from past human creations. Obviously, human’s imagination has its limitations, but we still have the upper hand.
Second, writing a blog post allows for a level of personalization that AI language models cannot replicate. Readers are often drawn to blogs because of the personality and authenticity of the blogger. Ninety percent of the content I create here result from personal experience and that’s the same for every content creator. Harnessing our unique perspective on things that happen around us helps us create content that others, much less Chat GPT, can’t duplicate.
Third, we are more flexible and adaptable as compared to AI. The vast amounts of data that AI is trained on gives it remarkable capabilities in many fields, outperforming humans in many tasks, but they can’t match human adaptability. We can swiftly adapt to new situations, learn from limited data, and apply our knowledge across various domains, with a deeper understanding and contextual awareness than AI.
Whether you’re a blogger, content creator, or just interested in the future of content creation, don’t be put off by the advancement of Chat GPT. Instead, see it as a tool to turbo charge your creativity and boost your productivity. As with any technological advances, AI is here to support the work we do. Use it to your advantage!
I sincerely hope you are right. You make a solid argument in support of our uniquely human capabilities. My concern is for children and how much they may be led toward dependency on AI.
I totally agree with you. AI isn’t inherently bad (or good). It’s how we use it to get results. If the next generation become dependent on AI then the future is in real trouble.
Thank you for this, I do hope content creators see this and gain back their faith. I also do hope that AI doesn’t make upcoming creators redundant and not creative.
Absolutely Emmanuella. That’s my hope too. If we rely on AI too much for content creation then like you said our creations will be redundant.
AI has a place, no doubt about it. But AI cannot possess emotion and most bloggers, myself included, manage to convey emotion in most of my posts. Love, hate, sense of humor? Can that very human emotion or quality be duplicated in AI?
You are right! AI can’t copy those emotions. We are social beings and human interaction is important for us. Like I said AI can supplement our work but can’t replace the work we do.
Love these points, and they echo similar sentiments I share. I wrote about this topic too recently and a friend commented to say the only blogging which may become affected soon is business blogging/ copywriting. However, there’ll always be a role for every other kind. Very sobering thought as that’s how she and many others earn a living. But, all we can do is be flexible and adapt to life’s changes
Agreed Rochelle! Adaptability is important a blogger to stay alive in the AI age. Thank you for commenting:)
I agree, AI lacks personalisation and creativity, it can be used as reference though.
Yess we can use it as a reference. Agreed Ambica!
