Have you ever recommended your own post?

Does it make you feel weird or kind of like you’re patting yourself on your back?

Or doesn’t it bother you at all?

I’ve seen a number of times on Medium where writers recommend their posts, so others see it by hitting the original green button or now the little heart.

I’ve also seen writers, not recommend or hit that little new heart button for their posts.

Plus, I have talked with writers on both sides of the fence and still I don’t understand the correct etiquette on this.

If anyone, especially Staff from Medium has a take on this I would really like to hear your opinions.
