I actually read my followers hub pretty regularly. I try to read and comment on their hubs once every couple of days. I try to stay connected to my followers and people that I follow.
I only have a small number of people that I follow and as well as people that follow me. I try to manage both my own following and the people that I am following in an organic way. If I like them then I will follow them and if they like me then they will follow me. I am trying to build writing relationships. I am kind of this way in real life. I only have a few friends.
