    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?

      You could send them a mass email.

      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.

          I like that too. Any idea why it was changed?

            It was when Twitter started to be popular, I think they just wanted to be trendy.
