To Follow or Not to Follow: A Poll

Just a kind of informal poll, for my own edification:

In the comments, you can weigh in, and feel free to elaborate if you wish.

a) Do you feel that when you

“follow” a blog, that blog/person should

“follow” you back? Do you feel insulted if they


b) Do you feel obligated to “follow-back” when

you receive a new follower?

Thanks in advance for your time and answers.
