Can I republish a post from my own blog?

Yes, we now allow members to republish posts from their own blogs at PCN, as long as they meet our requirements for length, topic and quality.

If you submit a republished post, please include a link at the end to the original post along the lines of ‘This post was originally published at Cracking Copywriting‘.
