Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools have revolutionized various aspects of content creation, including blogging. However, many people remain skeptical about the use of AI in creating blog posts and its impact on Search Engine Optimization (SEO). In this Article I am going to outline my thoughts on the how to use AI tools for blogging and how you should use it.
Straight of the bat I am going to admit I am using Bertha to help me create this article. It would be very easy for me to create this article in seconds. I could setup a “blogging machine” that would churn out blogs for you to read all day long, but it wouldnt be me So how do I use AI? It is important for me to approach it in chunks, think of it like a car, you are driving it, the car is moving you but you are controlling the car.
To begin the Article I asked Bertha.
Outline a blog post that talks about using AI to construct an article rather than completely write it. I got the following output
Artificial Intelligence has transformed the way people create content, making it easier and faster to produce high-quality articles. However, many are skeptical about completely relying on AI to write an article from scratch. This is where AI-generated content comes in – using AI to construct parts of your article while still allowing you to retain ultimate control of the final output.
1. Understanding AI-generated content: What it is and how it works.
2. Why use AI-generated content? Benefits include speed, accuracy, and increased productivity.
3. How to incorporate AI-generated content into your writing process: Tips and tools for success.
4. AI-generated content vs. traditional writing: Pros and cons of each method.
5. The importance of maintaining a human touch: How to ensure your content remains authentic and engaging.
AI-generated content is a powerful tool that can help writers produce high-quality content more efficiently. While some may argue that AI-generated content lacks the personal touch of traditional writing, it’s possible to retain control over the final product and maintain authenticity by using AI to construct certain parts of your article. Ultimately, AI-generated content should be seen as a complementary tool rather than a replacement for traditional writing methods.
Using an AI-generated blog outline is essentially a roadmap for creating content, providing a clear structure and flow for the writer to follow. However, it’s important to note that while an AI-generated outline sets the general direction of the article, the writer still has full control over the content and can add their own voice and perspective to the piece. The writer can then add their own thoughts and insights to each section of the outline. AI can still be used to create the content once the writer is specific in their question posed to generate the content therefore it is important to steer the answers by providing as much detail in the question as possible, by using terms such as.
1. Focus on – Use this term to highlight the main objective or purpose of the article that you want the AI to focus on.
2. Related topics – Ask the AI to suggest or provide you with related topics or subtopics that are relevant to the main topic of the article.
3. Include – Provide the AI with a list of keywords, phrases or concepts that you want to be included in the article.
4. Exclude – Specify certain topics or keywords that you want the AI to exclude or avoid in the article.
5. Tone – Indicate the tone or writing style that you want the AI to adopt, such as conversational, professional or informative.
6. Audience – Let the AI know your target audience and any preferences or sensitivities that need to be considered when writing the article.
By using these terms, you can effectively communicate with the AI and ensure that it produces content that aligns with your goals and objectives.
This approach enables the writer to strike a balance between using AI-generated content for efficiency and structure while still retaining the element of personal touch in their writing.
Remember, maintaining a human touch in AI-generated content is crucial for ensuring that your content resonates with your audience, as it only you who creates the content that they will read. Your content must connect emotionally, build trust, and strengthen your brand image. By adding your own distinct voice and perspective to the AI-generated content, you can retain control of the final product and ensure that it remains authentic, engaging, and valuable to your readers.
