I'd like to post a link to some poetry on my mother's blog on the blue. Is that appropriate, or is it considered self-promotion?

My mom is a poet/fiction writer with some really stellar work published in online and print journals, as well as in her blog and chapbook. I'd love to create a post to some of her writing in the blue, but I don't want the post to be flagged as self-promotion since she is someone I obviously know IRL. (Occasionally she posts photos or prints that I have created to accompany her poems, but that is not what I plan on linking to on the Blue). Would this be appropriate, or is it something better suited for Metafilter Projects? Thanks!
