I know that Hubpages doesnt like duplicates, which is why i havent published my articles elsewhere. What i am doing though is saving them to my blog. There's only one of me and only 24 hours in a day, and i would like to at least be able to use my articles to promote my blog too. I thought that was ok, as the blog is my own on my website. But now i started to receive notifications that i'm posting duplicates. If i'm not allowed to save my hubs on my personal blog too, then please let me know and i will probably just want to delete my Hubpages account.

You can certainly use your articles to promote your blog, but that's not the same thing as publishing the exact same content in a Hub and your blog at the same time. In fact, that's pretty pointless - why should anyone go to your blog if they can read the whole thing on HubPages? Also bear in mind that Hubs have a far higher profile than your blog, so it's the Hub that will turn up in search engine results instead of your blog - and I'm sure that's not what you want.
The right way to do it - write some original Hubs on your blog's subject, with a link back to your blog in each one. You'll earn from the Hubs and they will be very effective at promoting your blog, too.
For instance, I suspect some factual Hubs about OCD could do very well - then link back to your own blog as a personal illustration of how it affected you.
First I would recommend getting that link to your site off your post. No self promotion is allowed. Second, I am not sure what your site's topic is because you have a variety with your 3 hubs. If you would like to keep hubpages as a promotional tool to your site, I would probably suggest that you just write a small description of your articles and then place your hubpage URL under the description for your visitors to find the articles. I hope this helps.
Duplicate content is allowed, you do get a warnign but nothing will happen because of it. There is some contention as to the fact of whether posting duplicates of your own content will harm you.
The original should still do pretty well, but you might not get much benefit from your duplicate postings.

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would...
