My Blog Post “Hiatus” and ChatGPT

It’s been a while since my last post – nearly 3 months.  Riddled with guilt and with very little extra time on my hands, I turned to ChatGPT.  I asked it to “draft a blog post for DMC Law, LLC apologizing for not writing a blog post in a while.”  The text below is from ChatGPT and my comments are in brackets and bolded.

Title: Apologies for the Silence: DMC Law, LLC is Back with Fresh Legal Insights! [I don’t know that this post contains any fresh legal insights.]

 Dear valued readers and clients,

 We hope this message finds you well. We would like to extend our sincerest apologies for the silence on our blog lately. At DMC Law, LLC, we understand the importance of providing you with insightful legal content regularly, and we appreciate your patience during this hiatus. Rest assured, we are back and committed to delivering informative and engaging blog posts on a regular schedule.  [Listen, ChatGPT, I did not ask you to make promises that I cannot keep.  Yes, my blog posts are informative and some may be engaging but they will never come on a regular schedule.] 

 Why the Hiatus?

 Over the past few months, we have been working diligently on several complex legal cases [sort of but we don’t do litigation so not exactly], striving to provide our clients with the best possible legal representation. While this dedication to our clients is unwavering, it regrettably led to a temporary pause in our blogging efforts. We understand that our blog serves as a valuable resource for our readers, and we apologize for any inconvenience our absence may have caused.  [I doubt you all were sitting around waiting for my next post.]

 Our Commitment to You

 At DMC Law, LLC, we remain steadfast in our commitment to delivering high-quality legal content that addresses your questions, concerns, and interests [ChatGPT likes to make promises!]. Our blog is more than just a platform for us—it’s a way to share our legal expertise [Careful with the word “expertise;” professional rules of ethics frown on the use of the word, but I appreciate ChatGPT’s vote of confidence in me] with you, providing you with the information you need to make informed decisions in various legal matters [I certainly don’t provide legal advice on my blog. Where’s the disclaimer??]

 What’s to Come

 Now that we’re back in action, you can expect a steady stream of fresh and informative blog posts on a wide range of legal topics [Now you’ve completely gone overboard, ChatGPT.  At most, my readers can expect an unpredictable trickle of informative blog posts on healthcare and privacy issues.] Whether you’re seeking guidance on estate planning, business law, personal injury claims, or any other legal matters, our blog will continue to be a valuable resource you can rely on.  [And here’s where the wheels come off.  ChatGPT, do you know me at all?]

 Get Involved

 We value your input and would love to hear from you. If you have any specific topics or legal questions you’d like us to address in our upcoming blog posts, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Your feedback helps us tailor our content to your needs.  [This is not a bad idea!]


Once again, we apologize for the hiatus, and we appreciate your understanding and support. We are excited to be back and look forward to sharing our legal insights with you. Thank you for being a part of the DMC Law, LLC community.

 Stay tuned for our upcoming blog posts, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any legal concerns or questions. We’re here to help.

How did it do?  Overall, not too bad.  ChatGPT certainly helped me end my blog post drought!

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about using artificial intelligence (AI) tools like ChatGPT and others.  These tools can improve efficiency and processes.  But as with the use of any tool, you must be clear on how you will use it, how it works and its limitations.

There are ethical, quality, bias and transparency concerns with AI use.  Further, there may be data privacy concerns related to the data used to train AI systems or based on the data that is fed into those systems by the end user.  Without doubt, there is no shortage of “fresh and informative” issues to cover, which I will do in future blog posts (although I make no promises as to frequency).
