Do you always leave fanmail when you start following a hubber?

    Yes, I think it's just a nice thing to do...................................................................

    Not always, but I usually try to find something nice to say. It is always fun to get feedback from people and it is an easy thing to write a few words about a hub you liked or similar interests.

    Yes, Always. I think it the proper thing to do.

    I agree with rutley, it is a nice thing to do. However, it's also good to let the Hubber know why you're following them as well, so they know where their strengths are smile

    Yes, most of the times. It adds a feeling to it.

    I typically don't leave fanmail unless I have read a really powerful hub. Instead, I wait until I have been reading their hubs long enough to know I have enjoyed their writing, want to say thanks, or want to say they are a great writer. It varies though...sometimes I know I will like someone right away and will leave fanmail that same day.

    I try to do so. I am a new hubber without many leaders and without many followers. So far I have tried to post a fan mail whenever I have followed someone.

    I don't follow too many Hubbers as I think I just wouldn't be able to keep up with what everyone has written. When I do follow someone, I follow them because not only do they have great hubs and an excellent writing style, but I also think they have interesting views and a unique way of viewing the world. I always tell someone why I'm following them, I think if I can't think of a reason then I shouldn't bother to follow them.
    It does kind of... not really annoy me, but frustrate me a little when people follow me without leaving fanmail or commenting on any of my Hubs. Of course I appreciate the gesture, but I would appreciate knowing even more what they think works with my Hubs and areas they think I could improve upon.

    I leave fanmail only when I have something worthy to say.

    I think it is a nice gesture, and it lets the writer n
    know why you may be following them. I dont do it often, but at least I have read some of their HUBS, and left them feedback on the hubs.

    I may not always leave fan mail, but I try to comment on at least one of the hubs and try to read more than one hub.
