CHAT GPT-4 Use Cases - Turning a book into blogs 

So here was the challenge for me. I wanted to take the 30,000-word manuscript from the SelfCare Book. Having spent 8 years curating the work into one place, editing and refining it. I wanted to find the path of least resistance to using the content for other mediums.

My main concerns were the Open system's inability to control the IP and use of the work. However, one of my mentors shared with me "Are these thoughts your own? What if every thought has already been thought a million times over?"... "if it's true for impact, then what does it matter?" ... An interesting shift in perspective as I navigate open source, decentralized systems. Letting go of control and ownership, and surrendering to the process.

However, awareness and being mindful are important too. Here are 4 considerations before uploading your work into chat GPT.

STEP 1: 4 steps Integrating a BOOK INTO CHAT GPT

There are several ways you can upload a 30,000-word manuscript to an AI tool without making it public. Here are some options:

1. Use a secure cloud storage service: You can upload your manuscript to a secure cloud storage service like Google Drive or Dropbox. These services allow you to control access to your files and share them only with specific individuals or teams. Once you have uploaded your manuscript, you can use an AI tool to generate blog post content from the text.

I use Google Drive

2. Use an on-premise AI tool: If you have concerns about the security of your manuscript, you can use an on-premise AI tool. These tools are installed on your local computer or server and do not require you to upload your manuscript to a third-party service. Some popular on-premise AI tools for content creation include GPT-3, Hugging Face, and OpenAI.

3. Use an AI tool that supports local text input: Some AI tools, like Copy.ai or Writesonic, allow you to input text directly into the tool without uploading it to a cloud storage service. This can be a good option if you want to keep your manuscript offline and secure.

4. Use a VPN: If you need to upload your manuscript to a cloud storage service or AI tool that is not located on your local network, you can use a virtual private network (VPN) to create a secure connection. A VPN will encrypt your data and protect it from prying eyes.

Regardless of which option you choose, it's important to take steps to protect your manuscript and ensure that it remains private and secure. Be sure to use strong passwords and two-factor authentication to protect your accounts, and avoid sharing your manuscript or AI-generated content with unauthorized individuals.

STEP 2:  7 steps towards Creating 750-Word Blog Posts from Your Original Book & Content

The challenge for me initially was about creating the original content.  This took 8 years of heart, sweat, and late nights. This part of the process is crucial to ensure that our expression is human, personal, and our own. I feel that in the era of AI, many of us may lose the original creation and expression. Simply, regurgitating information from others.

For me the purpose of technology is to enhance our creations and original expressions, not to replace them. Chat GPT can be used to capture, arrange and segment our original work into more digestible forms.

Creating 100 750-word blog posts from a 30,000-word manuscript can be a daunting task, but it's possible with the right approach. Here are some steps to follow:

1. Identify the key themes and topics in your manuscript: Start by reviewing your manuscript and identifying the key themes and topics that you want to cover in your blog posts. These themes can serve as the basis for each post.

Example: In the SelfCare Book, I have created 12 medicines

2. Create an outline for each post: Once you have identified the themes and topics, create an outline for each post. The outline should include a brief introduction, the main points you want to cover, and a conclusion.

Example: I have a template that I used for each chapter of the book. It can be used and applied here too. It's the distillation of NLP, Gabby Bernsteins frameowrks and many other successful story telling formats that bypass the head and hit the heart. Enjoy!

I hope this helps you start your own kick-ass blog and gives you a platform to express yourself fully with the world. With tools, templates, and strategies that cost you less than ten dollars a month.

3. Break the manuscript into smaller sections: Divide your manuscript into smaller sections that can be covered in each post. Each post should cover a specific theme or topic and provide valuable insights and information for your readers.

Example: Each chapter has a heading, which means that each heading is one message and a potential 750 word blog.

4. Use subheadings and bullet points: Use subheadings and bullet points to break up the text and make it easier for readers to scan and digest the information. This will also make it easier for you to write and structure your posts.

Example: Within each of these headings, I can break the core message down into 4-6 key points. Eg. 5 ways to xyz.

5. Keep it simple and engaging: Keep your writing simple, concise, and engaging. Use language that is easy to understand and avoid using jargon or technical terms that may confuse your readers. Use examples and anecdotes to illustrate your points and make your posts more relatable and engaging.

Example: Less is more, simplicity is bliss. If you can beef up the blog's written content with visual frameworks or videos. It can adapt for all learning styles. The rational mind loves these steps. Vizualize Value is a great example for frameworks and simple metaphors. You can also see this applied to our instagram page @selfcare.global

6. Edit and refine the content: Once you have written your posts, take the time to edit and refine the content. Make sure that the posts are well-structured, free of errors, and provide value to your readers.

Example: I have a content creation team and support groups, where I post the content to test and measure its relevance, before sharing publicly. It gives me feedback and makes sure whats in my head and heart, lands "for them".

7. Schedule and publish the posts: Once you have edited and refined the content, schedule and publish the posts on your blog. Be sure to promote your posts on social media and other channels to reach a wider audience.

Example: Use sunday as a creation day, put 2 hours a side and create all your content for the coming week. Use a scheduling tool to automate the timing and cadence of posting, so that you dont have to spend too much time on social media. Also, it allows you to focus on engagement and keeping it human.

By following these steps, you can simplify the process of creating 100 750-word blog posts from a 30,000-word manuscript and ensure that each post provides valuable insights and information for your readers.
