I think so. If you write a lot of hubs, and visit a lot of hubwriters and comment on their work, your fan mail will come, it takes time and involvement.
It's tasteless to ask for appreciation. If it's deserved, you'll get it eventually.
I would never ask for fan mail. If people enjoy what they read and they like what you do, they will show you their appreciation. Be patient and keep writing good quality content.
I agree it feels good when someone says HEY GREAT IDEA, or I LIKE THAT, but if your in for the long haul, just have to get your joys from knowing you can be helping someone.. but If I read something of yours dear heart that I like, I will let you know!! SINCE It means a lot to you.. who are you anyway LOL
In the blogging world, comments and fan mails are obtained in an indirect way. If you want only appreciations in your fan mail, go and post appreciative comments on hubs/ blogs that others have written. "Great blog", "Excellent story", "wonderful write", "Mind blowing" - use all the superlatives. You will soon start getting comments and fan mails to your own blogs!
The advantage in this approach is that you don't really have to read any stuff. And hope you won't mind others too appreciating your writing without reading them!
I don't think one should ever ask for fan mail. If a person's work is good, today or tomorrow that will be appreciated. One should therefore keep on writing and try to improve.

I would like to see an indication on the Home Page (I use the standard) if someone leaves fan mail (or joins as a follower), a notification similar to comments left would be nice. You typically do not see this, or at least I don’t, until you open the fan mail box in “my account” or happen to...
