Yes, the last thing I want are duplicate articles. Even paying a professional writer from elance or guru brings that risk, although it is probably less than soliciting articles from visitors. Maybe the solution is to hire a part-time writer, say a college kid or stay-at-home mom, here in town. If they are an employee, their work product is mine.
