    Is that where you take post from another blog and put it on your own?

    Sorry, new term to me.

    Yes, but usually it'll just take excerpts so as not to qualify is full duplicate content that may not get indexed.

    Yeah, there's those Wordpress plugins that helps you to grab content from other blgos using RSS feeds and post it in your blogs.

    My suggestion:
    Avoid it.. better get TBS or spinnerchief. Randomly spin a few articles and schedule it on your blog. If you work for 1 hour, you can schedule around 15-20 articles. If you schedule to post 1 article/week, you needn't worry about your blog for another 5 months.

    Rinse Repeat. !
