    Several years ago I published an alternative medicing newsletter. The site has been down for at least 6 years. My first 2 hubs are articles that I have written for that newsletter years ago. I thought that there was some valuable information here that I could share with our fellow hubbers. There is no link anywhere and in no way do I profit from them. They have been statused as Duplicates. I feel like I did a really BAD thing!  sad

    Do I need to worry about this? Is there something I should do about it? I don't want people even thinking that I might have stolen these articles from somewhere.

    Dont worry you are the only one that sees it.  I have some duplicates. 
    And I have completely reworded them and yet they still show as duplicate.  One of my duplicates is my best earner and I have not touched it at all. 

    So decided not to worry about them anymore.  Only get grey hairs.

    It can drop your earnings so they so.  Good luck

    I agree with Eileen.  Don't worry about those.  Many of us have written posts that appeared in our own blog sites, for example, and I wouldn't hesitate to put good ones here.

    It could be that someone else has copied your original articles. If you search on google using a distinct phrase from your article you should be able to find it.
