Using a topic for multiple articles

    This question is for anyone who writes for multiple sites.  Do you use the same topic for more than one site?  If you do, what do you do to make it a different article with the same information?  I know you have to do a lot of changes and basically write a new article so that it doesn't show up as copied content.  I'd just like to use the same information for more than one article to increase my productivity and I'm not sure if I can always come up with a new slant.  For instance, I just published a hub on taking online courses for writers and I'd like to use the information for an article on another site.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    I write on the same main topic for several web sites, including HubPages and I've never had an issue running into duplicate content.  There are always ways to touch one aspect of a topic in one place, another somewhere else.

    For example using your taking online courses for writers subject.  Here at HubPages, you could go over the various types of courses for writers in different hubs while elsewhere you could touch on the why, how and more technical aspects of taking a course online or vice versa.  It can be very hard to write on the same exact topic without it sound repetitive.  Since the focus of HP is to write evergreen content, you want to tackle a subject with a new perspective as opposed to what everyone else is saying about it.

    I agree with Carpesomediem there are ways to write on the same subject from different perspectives, slants or even focus on just  deal with one part of an article in greater detail.
    I do it sometimes when I write on different sites.. a long tailed keyword may also help you do that.
