    My own article says "Duplicate"..why is this?  I originally submitted it to EzineArticles..could this be the reason?

    Thanks!

      No doubt.
      HubPages like exclusive articles. Your score may be affected a bit, but it's not a real big deal.  They do this so you know,  so you can address the situation in case someone is copying you. Their system does not check on whether you are the author of both.
      I have a couple of mine that are also published elsewhere.

      Yes, the duplicate warning means it's duplicated elsewhere on the net - whether by you or by someone else doesn't really matter.

      It's a debatable point, but many people believe that duplicate content is penalised by the search engines and therefore won't earn well.  That's why HubPages discourages it.
