Arin, I agree with you. When I did recommend my own posts I felt like I was bragging. I didn’t really know how it would help, but I listened to a few others and tried it.
Never again. I felt like I was cheating. Trying to buy votes or recommendations that maybe I didn’t deserve.
Just posting is hard enough, always thinking of the response, if any, but to then reward yourself with recommending your own work? I don’t think so.
