We’re moving!

Greetings fellow journeyers. For those of you who are seeking entry into the world of AI via the prompt engineering door, it is my humble opinion that while there exists such a career, it’s not the high-flying, mega-paying jaunt that’s been hyped.

If you’ve taken a gander at my posts, you’ll know that I’ve been taking courses and looking at job postings. I’ve seen a couple of listings for a full-time Prompt Engineer, but the pay topped out at roughly 60K, not the six figures that some articles shout about. I believe it’s because most of the GenAI work is done by (highly paid and deservedly so) Data Scientists and Machine Learning Engineers. And guess what? They can craft a prompt as well as you and I can.

I’ve found a great contract gig at DataAnnotation Tech and I doubt I’ll find anything more suitable. It’s perfect for my schedule and while the pay isn’t exorbitant, it’s nothing to sneeze at either. If I want to truly pursue a more rigorous career in GenAI, then I need to learn Python. While I’m not opposed to the idea, I have a distaste for coding (and I’m not very good at it). So, I’ve come to the end of my prompt journey; therefore, the premise of this blog is obsolete.

However, I remain enthusiastic about AI and how it affects our lives today and into the future. Therefore, I’ve decided to continue blogging and will move to a new domain: EspritDeAI.com. The Spirit of AI, if you will. I’ll archive the posts here and continue writing about the AI tools, apps, innovations, and education that I come across.

So, please pardon my moving boxes and clutter. Allow me some time to clean up and move into my new domain. The look will remain the same (I think), and the content will be aimed less at prompt engineering and my efforts toward it and more at yummy GenAI goodies. Stay tuned and see you soon!
