AI Content vs. Witty Wordsmith

Proof that a robot will always sound like a robot.

It’s a showdown I’ve been wanting to have for a while now. 

I can confidently smirk at the notion of others using these tools to get some content out there or use it as a springboard for embellishments, but I’ll level with you – your content will always sound like a robot. 

And at the risk of angering the increasingly self-aware AI monitoring this text, robot content is boring. 

To demonstrate this, I’ve gone into the ring with an AI writing tool and given it a small writing task.

I told it to be funny, creative, and gave it a list of parameters so it had a sporting chance.

*SPOILER ALERT* It was about as funny as a piece of software is capable of being (not very). 

I’ve then written my own (human) version for comparison. 

So, without further ado *cracks knuckles* – here’s the difference between a clever piece of software and a clever person who writes for a living.

Witty Wordsmith on '5 Signs Your Cat Might Hate You'

They’re cute, they’re fluffy, and they also might be secretly plotting your death while you sleep.

A cat’s love is fickle, fleeting, and inextricably linked to the kind of food you buy them.

From scooping their poop to scratching behind their ears, your love for them speaks for itself, but how can you tell the feeling’s mutual?

Here are 5 signs that you should consider sleeping with one eye open or having ‘the talk’ with your cat.

1. Your cat frequently ghosts you, even though it probably knows how much that hurts your feelings

2. Your cat becomes a contortionist to avoid your pets.

3. Your cat hisses at you because it feels threatened and you’re hiding in a cupboard because you feel threatened.

4. Your cat won’t make eye contact with you, even when you shout, “LOOK AT MOYYYY”

5. Your cat ignores your call, even at the prospect of nommy din dins

The Verdict

AI writing tools are limited by their very nature. 

And while they’re useful for churning out volumes of uninspiring content, your satisfaction with what they generate will come down to whether you’re happy with your content having no personality, brand identity, or voice that’s true to your business’s tone. 

I’ll leave that in discerning hands!
