    With the closing of Examiner I have 100s of articles that I have no place for as they do not fit any of my own websites, nor do I have the time to start more niche sites.

    I was thinking of bringing them here to HubPages, which would help beef up my profile again as well as give me a online portfolio again for my work.

    One of the questions I have is a lot of my content was celebrity news. There is no way to backdate items here on HubPages. I was trying to figure out a way to date them or word it somehow in the body of the article that it was older news or something.

    Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on how I could go about doing this?

    Evergreen hubs work best so if you can somehow manage to update the celebrity articles to make them general, that may help. Otherwise, you may need to post them elsewhere.

    I agree with Stacie L. above, but the only date that shows up on a hub is the date it was last updated and not the date it was first published. You can also choose not to display a copyright notice (e.g., © 2014 Jayne Lancer).

    You could perhaps include an update on the "old news."

    There's no way to backdate, and anyway if it's "old news" then there's not much point in publishing them on HubPages:  they'll get so little traffic that they'll go unFeatured (which means they'll be effectively invisible).

    I'd suggest putting your evergreen/current articles on HubPages, then start a blog on Blogger to host the "old news". 

    I didn't know Examiner had  closed.  Another one bites the dust!

      Thank you. That is what I figured. I am not worried about the traffic. I just wanted to use them as a portfolio. I have enough of my own websites to handle LOL and didn't really want to start another.

        If any of your articles were previously published elsewhere HubPages will not publish them. I am very sorry to hear Examiner is shutting down but should have expected it. Globe & Examiner were the only tabloids that printed the truth about Obama's birth and illegality.

          Yes they will.  HubPages will not accept any articles which are CURRENTLY published elsewhere on the internet - but if they are removed from all other sites, you can publish them here.

        If you just want a portfolio, then start a blog which is just for your portfolio!   You don't need to update it just because it's there - set it up, create an About Me page which presents your skills as a writer - and then forget about it.

        If you put them on HubPages they'll be getting unFeatured or snipped or .... so they'll be less work sitting on a Blogger or Wordpress.com blog.

        If you put them on Wordpress.com you can set the date of publication.
