You won't see your own posts in the "new posts" since that only shows unread posts. Since you are the one that created it, it's assumed that you have already read it.
It will only show up after someone else replies.
Assuming you are using the full site, you can always see your posts under the quick links dropdown in the green ribbon at the top of the site.
