No, you can't become an editor just to approve your own sites.That you own a website that fits a category doesn't prevent you from becoming an editor for it. Do declare it in your application if you apply though.
However, editors must take their website owner hats off at the door and edit fairly. If you think you can do that, go ahead and apply (when the application link is working again).
