I am asking a very newbie question. Sometime back, when I had made a personal site, I had inadvertently included a link to the site in one of the forums, while asking a doubt. I did so, thinking that the person answering my question will have a clearer idea of what I want by having a look at the site. Little did I know at that time that I was breaking the rules of the forum by giving a link to my site, which is considered to be an act of self promotion. The moderators were kind enough to point out my mistake without being too harsh with me.
But I have a newbie doubt. What happens when we include a link to the same site in the form of a signature? Does it not become a self promotion then? Or are there certain rules for including one's site as a signature e.g. a certain number of posts or reviews.
I have a personal site which I keep updating during my learning process I have recently learnt how to make a blog. Can I include links to my site as well as my blog as my signatures? Are there any rules to follow for doing so?
