Your question is one to ponder. and perform a self examination of what drives us in one direction or the other.
I will follow a hubber only if they share a common theme of interest. More importantly, they need to have a portfolio of articles that are put together in a smooth flowing, grammatically correct and properly spelled manner. I refuse to follow anyone who has not learned the basics of writing an intelligible article. Maybe I'm sounding harsh, but that is my honest answer.
I do not follow any bloggers, although I will follow columnists. The columnists I follow are ones that are on the same page as I am politically, socially and economically.
