I would love to be able to send a mass email to all my followers thanking them for following me . . . or wishing them a happy holidays, etc. How can that be done?
It's not possible, and for good reason. If it was possible to send a mass email to followers, some Hubbers would be bound to abuse it.
You can post a greeting on the Status on your feed and all your followers will see it.
I'm missing something. What Status? I don't see a comment box.
When you log in to HubPages you see your "feed" page, where you see the latest forum posts, Hubs etc from people you're following. There's a status box at the top. Type in there and it appears on the "feed" page of all your followers.
I just found it. Usually I don't sign out of Hubpages, but I do have another account, which I just went to. Coming back to this one I noticed the status bar. Thanks very much for letting me know. I agree that it's a better way to deliver group messages.
Were I to be spammed in this way by authors I have chosen to bookmark ("follow" is an offensive term, I do not "follow" anyone nor call myself a "follower" of anything"), I would delete the offenders from my list immediately.
I would do the same thing WriteAngled. I think wishing someone a good holiday and anything else should either be done in the person's profile or by leaving a message in the forums.
I wish there was another word that could be used instead of "followers." I don't follow anyone either, yet there are certain authors I like to read more than others, which does make me one by HP standards. Kinda like a groupie, which I don't consider myself either. There's got to be a better word.
How about calling them "feeders" since we show up in their feeds? I also like the all-purpose "dudes."
Originally, they were called "fans", not "followers", and the purpose was to sign up to read the work of writers you admire. There was no suggestion that you should become a fan just to be friendly. I liked that better.

Do any of you have people following you, but they have not writen any hubs, yet these people...have some 5-50 people following them? And, do you think that it is possible that these people may copy hubs and try to pass them on as their own?

Hello,I've been working hard over the past six months per hubpages and have what I think are a number of nice, interesting hubs. They are getting read quite a bit but few other hubbers choose to follow me. I sometimes will run a query of a topic I'm interested in (like the singer Neil...

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

I've had twitter for a while. I find it very spammy, so don't really read it. I post my hubs there & the occasional article I like. I have approx 300 followers (many are writers), yet in my traffic, I have very rarely had a visitor from twitter. Do the backlinks count for...
