What makes you choose to follow another hubber?
I have come across quite a few members on here who are following hundreds of other hubbers. I can only speak for myself, but I barely have enough time to write my own hubs, let alone time to read every hub that is published by all of the people that I follow. I will only follow someone if I liked reading the things that they have wrote, and if I will be looking forward to reading the future things they write.
I won't follow someone just because they are following me. It seems dishonest, and unfair to other hubbers, to follow them when you don't have interest in reading their hubs.
This is basically how I choose....
I will read through different hubs... usually by viewing the latest hubs. If I find a title that grabs my attention, I will read it. If they entertain me and I like what they write about, I will follow them. If I don't care for their style of writing, chances are good I won't.
However, even though I am following several people, I usually don't read every hub that they put out. I just don't have the time. Occassionally I will go into My Account and click on the Activitie tab and view Hubbers that I follow... from there, I will once again read through their titles. If there title draws my attention, I will read it. If not, I skip over it. However, if I found their writing to my liking before, it doesn't mean they won't write something else I am interested in. Therefore I am still following them and can catch it when I do.
Although, I will admit I do have my favorites... and those I check frequently for there stuff!
I only follow if I like at least a few of their hubs AND if they're on topics I'm interested in. Basically, the way I know to follow is if I read one of their hubs and later find myself wondering if they've published any new hubs recently... then I figure it's just easier to follow them than to keep checking back! I will say I don't follow very many people, but those I do follow I really like their writing.
They have to have interesting hubs that I enjoy reading for me to follow them , not just for he sake of it , isn't enough time in the day otherwise !
Hubbing is about connecting with people who we feel have some common with...either passion or interest or just similar experience that we can relate too....
For me it is similar to situations from a real life, imagine you are invited to a party you barely know anyone, you start to chat to people, with some you just exchange few words but with others you talk for hours...we connect because we are social beings and we have a need for it...hubpages are just another way how to do it:)
It depends. For me, following someone who follows me is a kind of payback following, and some kind of friendly support for this hubber. I think, by following people that follow us we create a positive relationship. And it may be interesting to learn from them. There is always something that the other person can teach me, I believe. Especially, when you just start hubpages. Also, for the question of time. True, at first it seems difficult to follow - there is so much information flowing through hubpages. But, after all, this is just a question of personal organization!
It's a couple things, actually. First, if they are writing a topic I am interested in, I will take the time to read it. If their profile is interesting, I will look at the topics more often. If they are grammatically correct in word usage and spelling, I will read the entire article!
I will look at the titles and pictures of their hubs, and if they grab my attention then I follow them and read some of the things that they have to say in their hubs later on. I love seeing what they have to say, but because there is so much, I read here and there until until I catch an interesting topic, paragraph, or something else...

Have you ever stop following a hubber,what made you stop?

I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now), checking out new hubs, etc. It made me consider an interesting question:How do...

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they can possibly read all those Hubs, I think it's done for other reasons.

Do you always leave fanmail when you start following a hubber?

How do you react to hubs with comments disabled?As a hub reader, how important is it to you to be able to comment? Does it frustrate you when you are not allowed to comment on a hub? Will you still vote on that hub? Will you follow an author who disables comments? I wonder if disabling comments...

When a hubber starts following you, do you follow them back?
