Is it Plagiarism When I Steal From Myself?

My third newspaper article ran in this Monday’s paper.  I have been busy with mid-terms this week and have not had time to pop over here and write about it.  In fact, I have been so busy and at a loss for what to write about for the newspaper, that I snagged an old post from almost a year ago, polished it a little, and sent it off to the editor.  I had told him when I first accepted the gig that I may have to resort to stealing my previously written material, which he was fine with as long as I tweaked it a little.

Anyway, take a look if you wish.  My long time readers will surly remember this one and if you missed it or just recently joined me here I hope you like it.

Please remember that I want to keep my blog and identity hush-hush.  I love comments and shares on the newspaper’s website (thank you to those of you that did so on my other article!) but try and refrain from calling me Shoes or mentioning ShoesOnTheWrongFeet.  Thanks!

  1. Way to Go Green! ;-)

  2. No. I have done this before. I gave myself the rights (at a good rate) – ha ha. Depending on how similar, you may want to tell the ed. or pub. of the paper.

  3. Reading that sure woke my sleep-frozen brain :)
