Yes, i do try to get to everyone who leaves me a comment, some days are so busy it may take a day, but it is a great way to build an audience and expand ones circle by reading new blogs.

Effort(as in thought) yes -- execution, sadly no.  

I am aware of reciprocation.  In AR and in life.

For many years, I have reciprocated on comments and it is a very good practice if you can do it. My time for reciprocation is coming to an end as I reduce my activity on ActiveRain.

If they have an interesting post I would read and comment; if they have a number of good posts I would follow them to keep informed better.

Michael J. Perry it is surely a good practice to reciprocate - however, it may not happen all the time.

I did not know this when I joined, but somewhere along the road I learned.  Yes, even when you get 100+ comments for a feature I reciprocate a comment.  It takes a while....
