You're not allowed to use the forums for self promotion so this isn't going to work!
Also leaving thoughtful comments which show you are interested in more than just gathering a group of followers is advantageous. For the most part I don't bother following someone who has randomly followed a group of people in rapid succession. If anything that kind of activity can hurt your score not help it.
I'm not trying to use the forums for self promotion, I'm just trying to follow people from the community I can connect with. Those with good hubs I'll follow, and likewise if you like mine you can follow as well.
I guess my angle may have been a bit off (I'm new here). Just trying to find out how to and who to connect with.
Check out the HP Help section:
The best ways to get followers are:
Leaving thoughtful comments on their Hubs;
Leaving thoughtful messages as Fan Mail when you follow them;
Posting thoughtful comments in the Forums;
Responding intelligently to comments others leave on your Hubs;
Responding in the Question/Answer section with good Answers.
ETA: Following others - they will probably check you out and see if they want to follow you.
When people see what you have to offer, they will check out your Hubs, and the ones who are interested in your topic and the way you write will become your followers.
In any event, Welcome to HubPages!! I hope you enjoy your time here!

I just checked my email and saw I had notifications that I had six new followers. I checked all these and found none of them have any hubs and all joined 4 hours ago. All are shown as following between 80 and 150...

I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now),...

Dear Hubbers. I've recently noticed so many changes on Hubpages. I had no internet for a week and upon my return things look so different. I like the cleaner white pages with the underline beneath the titles. The column...

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...
