      Not at all!  As soon as I get another inspiration, I'll be publishing for sure.

      Perhaps the fear is coming from you not feeling that it's finished, I'd suggest rereading it and editing it and then publish it. I had a poem I was afraid to publish because I didn't really end it, because I didn't know what to say so I just kind of left it. I made that comment on the top when i finally did publish it and multiple people said they didn't think it was unfinished, it was just my own paranoia, perhaps of being judge, i'm not sure what to be honest, but I'm glad I published it because I got some great responses so I'd suggest editing it once more and then publish it and wait and see what happens smile Goodluck

      Don't let other people's dishonesty control your behavior. Keep moving forward.
      On another forum, there's a discussion of Google alert being useful for letting you know if one of your hubs has been copied. It works on a unique phrase within your hub. I don't remember which it is, but I plan on searching for "Google alert" when I'm ready to use it.
      Use that when you publish, and maybe you'll feel better about keeping your work from plagiarism. I plan on looking into it myself this week.

    All my hubs had been copied and now I fear publishing another. I just wondered what other hubber's were doing and thinking

      If you fear so much it may be difficult to write on the www... Keep writing and slap the DCMA's when you find the thieves.. I have learned to do that now... LOL

    As a new hubber, I wouldn't worry about it. You can see where the traffic is coming from and mostly it will be from hubpages at first.

    What's published on hubpages can't be duplicated.

    Write a hub, publish it, earn revenue. No problem.

    Kiwi max, Whats published on hubpages can and has been duplicated. Most hubs that were published in March were all copied but thankfully the site has been pulled that done it. But it does make you wary

      oh, thanks for brining that up. Do you mean the content that was on hubpages was published on other sites?

      I got the idea of it being published on hubpages, again, but from a different author.

      I completely understand the concern, but the fact is that it isn't really worth worrying about. Sites spring up to copy content from elsewhere on the web all the time, and they die out just as quickly. It would be almost unheard of for a duplicate of one of your Hubs on a small site like that to actually affect your own search engine rankings.

    I've had a couple of dozen of some of my top hubs copied, and they continue to generate significant traffic.

    If you fear posting a hub because it could be copied, someone else is completely controlling your writing output and potential success.

    Amazingly, I've even had someone immediately copy one hub that took me a couple of hours to write, than had the audacity to contact hubpages to remove my hub for copyright violations. Hubpages, for whatever reason, wouldn't allow the hub to stay up unless I changed it, so I removed it - two hours of work down the drain.

    Just a couple of days ago I was also contacted by Hubpages about a DMCA takedown notice for an image I used, and it wasn't even my hub, but someone else's that somehow a hub url of mine overwrote in the e-mail. I went to the hub url and found it to be another writer's and nothing to do with me. I still haven't heard back from Hubpages on that one (ahem).

    While this was outrageous, it hasn't stopped me from continuing to write. Mistakes will be made, dishonesty will continue, and life will continue to be unfair at times. We can't let that stop us from writing - whether on Hubpages or anywhere else - as it's simply an aspect of living and interacting and dealing with people, not only a weakness of Hubpages.

    I also think we need to be careful not to be overly attached to our articles or we'll personalize every injustice and have a difficult time focusing on our writing.

    Best to just plug along, writing and posting and honing our craft than to be concerned over content scrapers.

      I admire your attitude!
