Years ago I used to write a newsletter, which I printed at home, photocopied at the 'mairie' (I lived in France at the time) and posted out to a few regular readers... this was before I had 'the internet'.
Some of the stuff I wrote back then I am now publishing in my hubpages.
(I shouldn't have a problem with duplicate flags, as only a few appeared on the web and they were on my old Geocities site, which no longer exists!)
My question is - when I note my copyright details, should I date it to when the article was first written? Or re-date it for now, especially if I update and 'tweak' it a little.
You do not need to date copyright, however if you do decide to do so, say copyright 'year' including continued amendments.
You may want to look at the credits given by a gentleman here on HP who has re-published many of his newspaper articles written over the years: William F. Torpey.
