The other thing to check with terms of places other than your own blog (e.g. if you’ve put it on Wattpad) — do they claim an ongoing right to publish your work on their site? Or do you have the power to take it down and revoke their right? If you do fund on Inkshares (or win a competition), you need to be able to grant them the rights they claim (see the publishing terms page).

As they appeared on my blog first, I think I should be okay, then.

Someone from the team should clarify this, but as long as you own the copyright and don’t have any exclusivity agreements for it elsewhere, I think you should be fine.

I have several stories that have been uploaded to various websites in the past, none of which are professional publications, and none of which own my content. These include creepypastas and a blog of my own. Nowhere in the terms of service did I see anything regarding the use of such stories (though I might have missed it). If I were to create a collection of those stories, would I be in violation of anything?
