Avoiding Plagiarism

    I take pride in trying to have original material on my hubs and that is why I take so long researching and writing my hubs before I publish. However, I just discovered a Hub on the same subject I wanted to write about. My Hub goes into much more detail than the other Hub and yet it is VERY similar. What do I do? Scratch the Hub I been writing?

    I want to play by the rules, but I also want to publish this hub! Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!

      If it is original and a worthwhile article then just write it.  They will get ranked accordingly.  Just because someone has written a book on exercise it doesn't stop other from doing so!

    Post it brother, I've found more then a few Hubs that were posted by people that commented on my Hubs then wrote ones startlingly similar to my own, but that's the nature of the site. You will be rated on your own merit regardless.
