Who was your first follower. And do you still respect them for being the first to have faith in you?
I'm not gonna name the name, but yes my first follower was very friendly and encouraging! I'm very appreciative of his taking the time to welcome me!
The first to ever follow me was James A Watkins. He is one of the best writers here, but doesn't participate much anymore. Since he read almost everything I wrote, I felt honored. He encouraged me to keep on writing.
Myne was a hubber who no longer speaks in forums. But does produce hubs fairly often. It was so nice to see a human.
If memory serves I got several followers within a short period of time after joining HP so I have no clue which one was first.
My first follower was 3,757 followers ago, so when I read people saying they remember all their followers, I can't help but start laughing.
Mine was Shadesbreath. I was pretty honored, but also pretty naive and his praise and encouragement made me eager to pen an instant bestseller in five days flat.
Reality suckerpunched me in the mouth.

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 width seems narrower, while now advertisements show up on both left and right...

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 following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

Is anyone else getting a lot of people requesting you to follow them in the fan mail comments?I have had about three people recently leave comments that ask me some variation of "Follow me because I have have followed you." My first reaction is to deny the fan mail and to not follow...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push my numbers over 200. That is great. However, most of these people have not only...
