How I used ChatGPT to Write an SEO Article [for free]

Good morning Reader, Hello, first of all! It's been a while since I sat down to write a newsletter! I recently moved house which has been a real process. I'm so excited to share today's video and article with you. I love writing these newsletters! First, a video explaining how to write an article using AI. How I used ChatGPT to Write an SEO Article I have pretty complicated thoughts on AI. I do *not* like to use it for my personal blog posts. It may save time, but I'm just never 100% happy...

To join the Partner Program and get paid for your writing, you have to be a paying Medium member. As a Member, you also get to read unlimited paywalled Medium stories.

Good afternoon Reader, If you’re like me, you hate looking at your old blog posts. It’s like hearing stories about what you did when you were drunk — I really said those things? I really wrote those words? That’s the odd thing about writing. Unlike other practiced skills like weightlifting, it’s hard to see obvious improvement day-to-day--or even month-to-month. If you want to see how you’ve improved, you have to look at your previous work. Once you can bring yourself to look at your past...

Good afternoon Reader, Here's a dose of tough love. So you want to make a living by writing about what you love. That’s amazing! If more people did that, we’d live in a happier, more passion-filled world. But maybe you’re running into problems. You’re pouring all your passion into your work, which is great, but don’t you also deserve to be rewarded for your hard work? Your blog posts aren’t getting views, you’re getting no comments, no engagement, nothing. Your hard-crafted work sits in a...

Hi Reader, Full disclosure: I have used AI to generate articles for my website. Not the good ones. Not the fun ones. Just the ones I wanted to rank for, but didn't feel like writing. Articles like: What is sensory language? What is contemporary fiction? But I had another motive for generating these AI articles. Well, two, actually. I wanted to test certain AI tools to see if I'd recommend them to a friend. I wanted to see if AI could rank for SEO. The short answer to both? Barely any, and...

Hi Reader, First up: since the last few Medium Income Reveals haven't had any views, I'm switching to screenshots instead. Let me know if you'd like me to include any particular screenshots, or have any questions! Here's my breakdown: That Partner Program bonus is the money I earned from nominating stories that earned a Boost. Top earning stories are screenshotted as well. For the record, 4/5 have been boosted. Full disclosure: I used AI to generate articles for my website. Not the good ones....

Hi Reader, It's a crisp, almost-autumnal morning here in Boston as I write this newsletter. My cat and I are enjoying our morning coffees in a gentle breeze. It is the perfect kind of morning to tell you: Medium, no matter what you've heard, isn't dead. Good morning from me and my hairiest son. What's Medium? If you're new here, the long and short is that it's a superb writing platform for beginner bloggers who don't want to deal with the hassle of starting a whole website, but still want to...
