HalBrown's diary today: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/2/20/1743142/-Trump-wants-a-m... has a list of his recent diaries at the end. Is that pimping?

Thanks

    No, it's not unusual and it is OK for users to put links to their own (or other people's) relevant posts in a story.

    Pimping typically refers to the process of promoting your own post by putting a comment with links back to your post(s) in OTHER people's comment threads, when those posts by other folks are not related to the topic you're promoting.

    Keep in mind also that it's OK to post about anything in an Open Thread.

    Thanks for asking.
