Is self advertising frowned upon?

I'm an enormous fan of Day9 and his Dailies inspired me to try my hand at shoutcasting. I've been shamelessly whoring myself about the interwebz and considered doing the same here. Before I go and posy my videos or make a fool of myself on my idols website, I figured I'd make a "feeler post" to test the waters. I in no way mean to spam or break the rules of this forum. Thank you for any answers or feedback.
