A Word of Truth for My Audience

I recently got a comment that, at first glance, started as an honest compliment. It reads as follows:

I read a lot of interesting posts here. Probably you spend a lot of time writing, i know how to save you a lot of work, there is an online tool that creates unique, SEO friendly posts in seconds, just type in google…

Upon further inspection, I quickly found that it is actually just cut and paste spam. Here is the thing, it was only a ploy to get me to use artificial intelligence to create a new form of copyright infringement. I have deleted the name that they had referred me to search, because I believe that you, my audience, deserve better, and I refuse to further their cause.

In actuality, I do spend much time writing, and even more time thinking about what to write. I do so as therapy. Consequently, I do not need to “rewrite articles” to pass off as my own. I write to tell a story, and I do not think that you would appreciate such laziness and blatant acts of plagiarism. If you feel the need to flog yourselves with such atrocities, you can go to the local cinema and pay to see what rehashed ideas Hollywood has again come up with.

Writing helps me collect my thoughts, and it keeps me honest. Every time I write here, I create a record. Through my words, anyone can recollect that record. This means that anyone can look through here and call me out. Therefore, what I write here must be the truth. If I write that I am going to do something here, I must do so. This keeps me accountable. You keep me accountable. Otherwise I am just putting out the same rubbish and pointless drivel that you can find most anywhere else on the internet.

Of course, you might not know either way, but I would, and that is enough for me to put out the truth. Plus, what are you to me, if I cannot write the truth?

Everything you see here, is a product of this chapter of my life. I recycle Jeep parts, there is no reason for me to tell my tale from recycled words. This is my story, and I do not need word robots to rewrite somebody else’s account, just so that I may be spared a few moments of time.

You are my audience. You mean more to me than that, and you deserve better.
