I think the best is the first, of course! It is not so much of what it's written but a good gesture. It gave me the courage to wite more. On the other hands, I get discouraged from some of the great Hubbers with high scores. They just don't give a care to become my fan. I think my writing is somewhat good.
I have many great fan mails, impossible to pick out my favorite. Now my score is not that great , I hit 99 once, a long time ago, but I routinely check out new hubbers and fan them if their stuff is interesting and good. As one gets up there in fan count it is very hard to keep up with all the talent and impossible to keep up with everyone. Older hubbers have to write and work too. As most have a day job and family. I am fortunate to have more time on my hands. Write good stuff and have patience, it will come.
I love all the comments ,hubbers leave on my hubs. This is one of the most original

this is like wandering through the streets of some completely foreign country where everyone wears saffron, turquoise and magenta and says things like 'Sometimes getting completely lost is the best way to find yourself'. I'm pressing the UP button...
When I discovered HP, I just wrote a hub and posted it, not really getting immersed in the community. I didn't know about the community. I sort of walked away from writing and have only done it sporadically because my first love is being a composer/songwriter. I was so surprised when I got my first bit of fan mail. I had no idea about any of that. So I nosed around a bit, and decided I better be a good neighbor and start reading.
Now it's hard to balance the reading with writing. And I'm addicted to these damned forums. LOL
But what I've found is that the mix is incredibly diverse and so many people here are thoughtful and intelligent. I have my favorites, but I think for the most part, you know who you are. I think the kinship comes from similar tastes in wit and humor and philosophies of life.
I've had many a blah day brightened from fan mail and comments, and reading forum posts. Just want to say thanks to you, my cyber friends, for making life a little sweeter.
I'm not sure because I appreciate them all. I think those that joke or just say don't get into newspaper journalism are my favorites (it's in reference to me being a newspaper intern in my hub profile). I kinda know where they are coming from...plus I wasnt a big fan of writing for the newspaper anyway.
When I get a notification that someone has posted new fan mail and I click on the link it goes to a list of my fan mail which appears to be in reverse chronological order.The new fan mail isn't even there! I have tried...
I started with hubpages a few days ago, and started following people that I admired, and whose writing I enjoyed. It asked me if I wanted to write fan mail, but I thought I would wait until I got to know them a bit...
