Can you fake me?

Hey hey.

Hope you're doing well.

So for today, I played around a bit with ChatGPT, and I wanted to see... Okay. Can I automate this blog-writing process more convincingly compared to "write a blog post on X"?

TLDR. Not really.

Long version:

Since I have written quite a few blog posts by now, I first compiled most of them (except experimental ones or the ones with a lot of pictures) as my dataset.

My first attempt was to input them one by one into ChatGPT and see what comes along.

This was one of the results.


The Art of Continous Improvement

Hey there!

I hope this finds you all doing well on this beautiful day. ❤️ Today, I want to dive into the world of continuous improvement in software development, inspired by the wisdom from "The Pragmatic Programmer" and other valuable experiences.

As developers, we know that growth and progress are at the heart of our craft. It's not just about writing code; it's about refining our skills, enhancing our processes, and striving for excellence in every aspect of our work.

One key aspect of continuous improvement is cultivating a habit of reading informative books that enrich our knowledge. The right books can unlock new perspectives, inspire creativity, and equip us with powerful tools to become better programmers.

But continuous improvement is not limited to reading alone. It's about embracing the beauty of refactoring – the art of transforming code into elegant and maintainable pieces. Yes, refactoring may seem daunting, especially when dealing with legacy code, but the rewards are immeasurable. Each refactor brings us closer to cleaner, more robust codebases.

Embracing orthogonality in our designs is another pillar of continuous improvement. By decoupling different components, we create systems that are adaptable, flexible, and less prone to unintended consequences. It's a journey to smoother sailing through software development.

Let's not forget the importance of self-testing code. With careful attention to assertions and test suites, we gain the confidence to make changes without fearing regressions. Testing is a superhero that saves us from the dreaded bugs that lurk in the shadows.

Continuous improvement is not just about technical aspects; it's also about understanding user needs. As programmers, we help people translate their requirements into functional code. It's an art of communication and empathy, ensuring that we build solutions that truly cater to their needs.

Now, as you set sail on your software development journey, remember that continuous improvement is a lifelong voyage. It's about seeking opportunities to grow, to challenge ourselves, and to become better than we were yesterday.

So, my fellow developers, let's embrace continuous improvement with open arms. Read, refactor, design orthogonally, test diligently, and understand the needs of those we serve. Together, we'll navigate the seas of software development and reach new horizons.

Happy coding, and see ya on the voyage of continuous improvement! 🚀


As you can see, it just tried to mush together everything it got into a single blog post.

I tried telling it, hey, don't just put everything together. While content and style-wise aren't the most convincing, it's still a somewhat coherent blog post.

Then after a bit of trial and error, I thought. Okay. The topic similarities are happening because it is just hand-picking similar topics from the given prompts. Why not just let it write up something completely different? Let's see...


Greetings, wanderers of the written word!

Today, let's set our sails in the direction of an ancient art that continues to captivate hearts and minds – calligraphy. Inspired by the elegance of strokes and the beauty of expression, let's delve into the world of calligraphy and its enduring allure.

1. The Dance of the Pen

In the graceful hands of a calligrapher, the pen becomes an instrument of artistry. Each stroke is a dance, imbued with intention and precision. As the ink flows onto parchment, it weaves tales of skill and creativity, leaving behind a mesmerizing trail of ink.

2. The Harmony of Styles

Calligraphy offers a diverse array of styles, each with its unique flair. From the flowing curves of Copperplate to the bold strokes of Gothic, every style is a reflection of the calligrapher's personality and interpretation. As you explore different styles, you'll discover your own voice within the art.

3. Ink, Paper, and Patience

The essence of calligraphy lies in the simplicity of its tools – ink and paper. Yet, within this simplicity lies a world of boundless creativity. With patience and practice, you'll learn to control the flow of ink, master the pressure of the pen, and create mesmerizing art.

4. The Meditative Process

Engaging in calligraphy is a meditative journey. As you immerse yourself in the rhythm of strokes, the world around you fades, and you find tranquility in the act of creation. It becomes a form of mindfulness, where the present moment is all that matters.

5. Preserving an Ancient Art

Calligraphy is a bridge that connects us to the past. Across cultures and centuries, calligraphers have preserved the written word as an art form. By continuing this tradition, we honor the rich heritage of human expression.

6. Personal Expression

Beyond words, calligraphy allows us to convey emotions and stories through strokes and embellishments. Whether writing a poem, a love letter, or a cherished quote, the art of calligraphy elevates the written word to an extraordinary realm.

So, fellow calligraphers, let's embrace the beauty of the written word. Allow the pen to dance with grace, explore the harmony of styles, and treasure the simplicity of ink and paper. Find solace in the meditative process, and be a guardian of this timeless art.

With every stroke, we honor the legacy of calligraphy and etch our own mark upon its storied pages.

Happy writing, and see ya on the path of artistic expression! 🖋️


Doesn't feel right. So I went on researching, if this is just me being extra stupido or just the technological limit.

Well... It seems like the latter was the case. While it could maybe fool someone in smaller texts, in larger blog posts like this one, there is no fooling around. At least for now. Advancements in this field are happening quite rapidly. The fact that I could do this testing out quite quickly without too much work was unimaginable just a few years ago, and with more and more advanced AI models coming out in the future, I might see that coming along sooner than I think. At least, that's my personal human prediction...

What this constitutes though... Dunno. But we will see.

See ya.
