I Asked ChatGPT – AI – Design Questions… Here’s What It Said… And What Does This Mean For Design Blogs/Websites???

We knew it was going to occur, however it’s abruptly HERE and NOW. Like most human beings, I’ve blended emotions about Synthetic Intelligence taking up the world (and my job). By “blended” I believe it’s largely going to be fairly dangerous socially and culturally, however it additionally feels moderately inevitable so we have to settle for, pivot, and determine methods to adapt and revel in our lives whereas we’re right here (and pay our payments). Being a digital creator is now being extremely challenged as a number of the data that I attempt to give as design training, can now be requested to AI as a substitute of Google (which might traditionally ship us site visitors). Creativity could be copied, simply not nearly as good, and determining what holes can NOT be crammed by AI is the brand new problem. It’s all okay, I PROMISE and we are attempting new methods to remain alive/related and keep positively 100% human:) However first, out of deep curiosity, I requested ChatGPT a number of questions based mostly on our hottest posts – those that ship us “Google” site visitors (versus people who come daily as true followers – thanks). These posts are what we name “evergreen successes” and we replace them yearly to verify they’re nonetheless related as they proceed to get site visitors daily. Traditionally these posts have introduced a number of income as apparently, persons are googling them quite a bit. However as increasingly more individuals use AI and TikTok as engines like google these posts might get much less and fewer site visitors. So right here’s what I requested ChatGPT.

Once more, their response is nice and proper. Is there quite a bit lacking? In fact. Footage, nuance, a definite voice, humor – none of that’s there. After desirous about this for months and months and months, I’ve come round to the concept that that is only a new inevitable inventive problem for us to resolve. And remedy, we’ll. So what’s our technique transferring ahead to make sure that we don’t all get taken over by robots and lose all our site visitors to AI? Nicely, it’s truly tremendous easy. We’ll lean into our human-ness. I’m truly actually excited. You’ve already seen it roll out a bit, however primarily we must be extra of a platform of opinions (sure, please), belief (through precise design experience), humor (which is increasingly more difficult nowadays TBH), connection (relatability, vulnerability, and nuance), and really particular initiatives (like mine, Bowser’s, Orlando’s, my workforce’s MOTOs, and so on). It’s not that any of these items aren’t already right here, however it truly offers us extra permission to do them extra. Extra journal entries and thought items, much less tutorials and purchasing roundups. Will we nonetheless do some design academic posts? Sure, however now we have a brand new purpose of constructing certain that how we place these posts received’t be AI-able and even one thing you’ll find on TikTok (which can also be taking down Google and Instagram quickly). I’ll be writing far more posts and now we have the info on what posts by what writers you’re feeling probably the most linked to so we’ll be hiring and publishing these voices probably the most.

I’m additionally excited a few new video technique (with a brand new native videographer) that may hopefully create some enjoyable methods to study/share and join. I’ve all these tremendous juicy posts in my head, perhaps not absolutely fashioned however able to be written – stuff about social media, marriage, feminism, parenting – items that I believe I’d have been scared to jot down the final couple years however increasingly more it’s what I wish to learn, and subsequently it’s what I wish to write.

Anyway, as all the time I wish to know what you might be studying and loving (and coming again for). We are able to see the proof by way of the analytics and the backend – some posts get nice site visitors, however much less engagement (time on web site) and others do the other. Some each:) We love all of them for various causes, however the purpose now could be to have interaction who’s already right here or right here steadily, and never attempt to essentially get all these Google hits as a result of as this new tech rolls out it may be a idiot’s errand (or one the place I’d have to rent a full-time website positioning individual to execute which I’m probably not all for doing). An increasing number of blogs are dropping like flies (that is additionally resulting from many lawsuits from picture companies about utilization – myself included) and the web and social media “competitors” is undeniably fierce – simply too many individuals, on too many platforms to comply with, and you must be posting obsessively – virtually 24 hours a day – to be favored within the algorithm. But it surely’s not a zero-sum sport and it’s truly not a contest with one another. The one strategy to not burn out or fold altogether is to attempt each single day to have a wholesome relationship with the shared foe (social media algorithms and now AI) and know that the one factor you’ll be able to management is your response to it.

I paid for 5 new Substacks final month that I’ve loved studying. Every one is very opinionated, private, and mind-broadening. It looks like there’s a renewed starvation for the longer kind writing so long as it’s, effectively, actually actually participating, compelling, private, and entertaining. So does that imply that blogs are lifeless or are the OG private journal-style blogs truly again? It appears to me that the “design web site,” one thing that we claimed to be might need to shift. And if me (which you do), that you just don’t should ask me twice to be extra private. I’m excited. We’ve got an enormous summer season of reveals deliberate (taking pictures is at the moment on pause to complete all the things) as we “wrap up” this home and I get to maneuver on to documenting two different large initiatives.

When you have any ideas or recommendations, please, pontificate within the feedback. We’ve considered textual content notifications for farmhouse content material so individuals don’t miss it (and nonetheless may however the concept of somebody asking for my quantity feels hilarious, whereas I assume it’s profitable for others). Numerous concepts floating round my head and in our brainstorming classes. Digital media has all the time felt just like the wild west, however now it’s gone full futuristic/sci-fi, the place robots might take over inventive jobs if we don’t assert ourselves and take management. RIGHT??!!!
