I believe that followers accumulate as a result of writing the best content you can, reading and commenting on lots of Hubs, reading comments of others and paying attention to the people who make them. I have found a lot to the people I follow whom i consider good writers by reading comments and then reading that person's Hubs. If I like their work I follow them. Asking questions is good too.
Periodically, I just browse through a long line of hubbers. I add almost all of them, avoiding only the really strange (psychic fortune tellers and witches, e.g.) writers that I will never read.
Then, some percentage follow me back.
The other way is to leave insightful comments. Some people hype the joy falsely. Not me, I want to be me, and have a personality. Better to lead than to go with the flow.
I personally will follow a hubber after reading a great comment. They have something to contribute, right?
I get most of my followers from people who have read a hub or two and are interested in reading more.
I read a lot of hubs and follow the authors I am interested in, sometimes they follow me back.
Do you put more time in to reading than writing? It is easy to do!
Actually I have a tendency to surf through the questions more than anything. Though a lot of the questions do spur ideas for hubs.
Basically I wrote some hubs on subjects that interested me , although in the beginning, HP stated 3 out of four were " substandard" according to their rules..so I rewrote and finally one was accepted.. It was regarding 'phthalates" a controversial chemical found in certain plastic items..then " Choices" ...some of the people I follow commented, some not ...I also shared with twitter and facebook..although I rarely visit those sites...I'm bad....

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion;...
