    There is no overnight magic formula.

      Don Bobbitt hit the nail on the head! There's no better way to get followers than to regularly publish high quality, interesting Hubs. big_smile

    When I first joined Hubpages over 4 years ago now I had no idea how it all worked, or how to get followers. I didn't even know about following other people and reading their hubs. I was pleasantly surprised when a lovely chap called 'Misha' followed me and began commenting on my writing. Before I knew it my followers went up daily, and during this time I found time to read other people's work, and when I liked what they wrote I followed them so I would be notified when they published new stuff. It just kept growing from there, and with little effort from me. Now I have around 1500 followers, and whilst I seriously doubt even a fifth of them actually get around to reading my hubs, it is still nice to see the occasional new follower and hope they simply like what I write. If you produce the quality articles the followers will come naturally.

      Thanks for the info Misty. I am a newbie at this also. This keeps me inspired to keep writing on here.

        Reading and commenting on other people's hubs and being active in Q&A and the forums also helps others get to know you. However, don't go overboard on it, just a little at a time.

            Using humor for just about anything, from straight comedy to giving a serious subject a nice light-heartedness never hurt either. But even deadly serious, thought-provoking articles about little known subjects that you are passionate about will also go a long way.
            I'm new here, and what I just described is my writings (Do check them out; you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn) and I'm 8 for 8 on not only getting published, but all have been "Featured" as well. I am assuming that's an achievement. I seem to be slowly building up a cult following and soon all will bow before me!
            Muahahahahahaha! Sorry, lost my composure there.
