Like many people, I am fascinated by ChatGPT. It entertains and amazes me. It* also inspires me and saves a LOT of time.
For fun, I asked it* to write a blog post based on the LinkedIn post that can be seen above. The blog post that ChatGPT created is below. I hope some people enjoy it.
Don’t be afraid of ChatGPT –
play with it, learn what it can do
Living creatures of all sorts learn through playing. Fun and having a sense of humour are essential for our well-being. They are generally regarded as pretty good medicine and seldom need a spoonful of sugar to help them go down. They are coping mechanisms. Having fun and laughing can enhance productivity. They can also be catalysts for breakthroughs, and their side effects are hardly ever lethal.

- 10 Things Every Parent Should Know About Play
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (naeyc) reminds us that when play is healthy it can reduce stress and teach us new cognitive skills, vocabulary, social skills, and literacy skills.
- Five Essentials to Meaningful Play
The naeyc also reminds us that for play to be meaningful we should make our own decisions and be motivated intrinsically. When play is meaningful and spontaneous, we find it enjoyable and can become immersed in the moment.
- UNICEF considers play “An essential strategy for learning”
That is why I highly recommend playing with ChatGPT. It is a tool. Use it and have fun with it. Learn about what it can and can not do. As the 32nd President of the United States encouraged: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

ChatGPT’s blog post
As a writer, Google is an essential tool that I use every day. It’s my go-to resource for anything from finding synonyms to checking my grammar. However, I must admit that my Google search history can sometimes be a little strange, and it’s not uncommon for me to get sidetracked by interesting articles or topics that catch my eye. In this blog post, I’ll take you on a journey through my recent Google search history and share some insights into the things I’ve been looking up.
“Synonym of leverage”
When writing, it’s important to avoid repetition and keep your language varied and engaging. That’s why I recently found myself searching for a synonym for the word “leverage.” After all, if I use the same word too many times, my writing can become monotonous and lose its impact. Some synonyms for leverage include “influence,” “advantage,” and “power.”
“Is it onto or on to?”
One of the trickier aspects of writing is figuring out when to use “onto” versus “on to.” While they might seem interchangeable, there is a subtle difference in meaning between the two. “Onto” generally indicates movement or physical contact, while “on to” refers to a transition or continuation. For example, you might say “I climbed onto the roof,” but “I moved on to the next chapter.”
“Antonym of stellar”
Sometimes when writing, I find myself struggling to think of the perfect word to convey the exact meaning I’m looking for. That’s why I recently searched for the antonym of “stellar.” While I might have used “mediocre” or “average” in the past, I was looking for something a little more precise. After a quick search, I discovered that “terrestrial” is often used as an antonym for “stellar” when referring to astronomy or space-related topics.
“Keyboard shortcut for em dash”
As a writer, I often use em dashes to indicate a sudden change in thought or an interruption in dialogue. However, constantly having to insert the em dash using the “insert symbol” function can be time-consuming. That’s why I recently looked up the keyboard shortcut for an em dash, which is “Option + Shift + -” on a Mac and “Alt + 0151” on a PC.
“Preposition vs. conjunction”
While I consider myself a proficient writer, there are still some grammar rules that trip me up from time to time. Recently, I found myself questioning the difference between prepositions and conjunctions. While both types of words connect phrases or clauses, prepositions are used to indicate a relationship between a noun or pronoun and other elements in a sentence, while conjunctions connect clauses or phrases of equal importance.
In conclusion, as a writer, I rely heavily on Google as a tool to improve my writing and ensure that my language is varied, precise, and engaging. Whether I’m searching for a synonym or antonym, trying to figure out a grammar rule or keyboard shortcut, or simply looking to learn something new, Google is always there to help me improve my writing skills.
