Duplicate of my own blog?

    I have a red word "duplicate" on this article:

    <snipped link>

    and I think it's because it's a duplicate of my blog.  I just wrote the article to help someone with her doctoral dissertation.  she wrote to me (and probably others) trying to get participants.

    What do I do?  Should I take my article offline?  Should I reword the letter that the woman sent me?  I don't even know who is in charge of editing.

    Any ideas?

      You can post your own content even if it already exists in other places, but it is not the best way to go.

      Nevermind. I just took the "duplicate" content off and put a link to the "duplicate" info on my blog.

      No good deed goes smoothly.  (I hope I won't be penalized for trying to help someone.)

        Your motives are not significant. I suggest you take the time to familiarize yourself with the rules concerning duplicate content:
