Do You Think You Can Repost Your Articles?

Have you ever thought of trying to repost your own work from another writing site to Persona Paper? Do you think that it is allowed? These questions of mine have been answered when I read the FAQ section of this site. Have you spared some time to read about it? If you can repost your previous article from another site, what is your proof that you are the author of that article? For me, if I can edit that original post by cross-referencing the links between the two sites that would be sufficient as proof. Others say it's a form of plagiarism since the post is already existing in another site. I beg to differ. Plagiarism is stealing others work. If you authored the post, how can you be stealing from yourself? What do you think?

Yes. As long as you can prove that you are the author and you provide a link of the original post

No. I still think that is plagiarism

Some people do believe that taking your own work and posting it on another site is considered plagiarism. It's called self-plagiarism. If the website owner where the original article is published doesn't allow articles to be reposted elsewhere, it will be considered plagiarism. I know Infobarrel doesn't allow reposting articles published there elsewhere. Helium used to want to hold the article for one year before giving writers the right to publish their articles elsewhere. So you need to know the rules for each individual websites.

Thanks for the information. It surely helps to understand about self-plagiarism. But then, this site allows it so I need to check the other one for any issues.

From FAQ 4th bullet point, I quote
"Am I allowed to post articles I created for another site?

Any content that is plagarised is grounds for immediate removal. Articles will be randomly checked for uniqueness and action will be taken if any questions arise. You can repost articles from other sites so long as you provide proof that you are the author of the original article. We recommend contacting support for any questions about this policy. Keep in mind that you will need to include a link to the original article in the article you post here."

To quote again the second sentence -
"You can repost articles from other sites so long as you provide proof that you are the author of the original article. "

My point exactly. But I guess the proof of authorship is if you are able to edit the original article to include cross-reference link to this site. What do you think? Do you have any other form of proof of authorship?

Somehow it's going to be answered here. Is this the reason why you opted your account to be deleted from the other site?

I think proof or authorship is easier if you use one name or pen name across all sites you write for.
