Why Do You Follow the Hubbers You Follow?
Just curious to know. Kindly share with me the reasons. Thanks
I follow people who I've learned from or will likely learn from. I also follow people who just write great hubs (long hubs with thoughtful ideas, mostly without errors).
I am only following a few people so far and I chose them because I like their style of writing, I was drawn in after the first few seconds of reading their work and because they have written about topics which interest me.
I follow people if I liked a hub or more, since the next time a hub is published, i will probably be interested in reading it.
It is also useful to follow people with similar interests.
I follow the hubbers I follow, because they post interesting hubs about topics I enjoy reading about.
I select hubbers to follow based upon their writing, their topics, and their hubtivity. I also review who I am following every month to ensure I am still enjoying the person's work and want to be notified when they have new hubs posted.
On the flip side, if you want to know why we follow others, you may be interested in why we don't. I will not follow people who write articles with lowercase "i" and other grammatical mistakes consistently. I will not follow hubbers who appear to just blog versus post engaging and helpful content. I will not follow hubbers who are consistently posting rude and judgmental content in the forums. When I have followed such people and see this kind of activity, I have unfollowed them because I do not believe it supports the community spirit I enjoy so much here at HubPages.

Do people really read the hubs of people they follow?Is it just me but I tend not to follow too many hubbers because I would never have time to write if I read all the hubs they submit. Perhaps I’m being naive here...
