    This is new for me. I am trying to get things going with writing small articles for small paper in Lansing, MI. This is my very first time even doing this, I will continue to write for the paper. I wanted to attempted to use my own article for Hub pages it will not let me use my own material.

    Alas, duplicate content is a no-no; even your own. smile

    Self-plagiarism, as they call it. It's either one or the other, not both. You can easily go in to more detail on HubPages though. You could have several hubs on one topic, even.

    Doesn't matter whether you are the original author or not.

    Chances are your editor at the paper doesn't want you doing this, either. I know the editor of the little paper I write for wants all of his paper's content to be unique and not to appear anywhere else.

    Maybe you could rework your newspaper articles, giving them a slightly different slant, different quotes, different photos, etc. and then post the new ones on HP.
