When you get a new follower, does it energize or motivate you to write more?
I'm not sure if it's motivation or if it just feels good to the ego and I want more. We all have egos, you know. Some huge, some not. There is nothing wrong with feeling good about yourself and your talents. But there is something special going on when someone else recognizes that. It's a little lesson in life. When someone does something good, anything, let them know because good things grow when they are fed.
Perhaps it should, but for me it doesn't. I usually lose about as many followers as I gain, due to my honest commentary. However, if I was here for a popularity contest, I'd be kissing everybody's backside, lying to them and telling 'em how great they were while following every hubber under the sun. From there, I'd have loads of followers earned via a spam method, in my opinion. I must say, though, on rare occasions you actually follow or get followed by way of a genuine means, and this, I can see, as being motivational in a good way - for some.
Every follower motivates me when it comes to writing on the hub pages. The great comments they leave behind even motivates me more. Followers are what makes the hub pages fun. Keep on hubbing
I agree on all counts. Our ego is what drives us and as long as it's in its rightful place and not all over us it serves a good purpose. Some people on this site are trully well meaning, so welcoming and encouraging that it fills the soul with that special feeling like sipping sweet red wine on a breezy autumn day and all you want to do is sit back and type away; let the world know you're out there and you appreciate it.
A true follower is motivating, but when I see that a new follower has followed 1000 others in the week he's been here it's not so much.
At the beginning of joining Hubpages, more followers kind of motivated me to write more. But now I write more because of wanting more page "views" by Google's search engine and other search engines.
I like having followers but I rarely notice when I gain a new one. I generally only notice if it happens to be while I'm online which is rare but has happened. However, followers on HP are not really a motivation for me. Yeah, I think it is cool but I'm really more interested on trying to figure out how to gain more page views from google.
I would naturally think so. Who doesn't want and need more followers -- or hub readers? ^_^

Why do attractive young women get more followers on HP than overweight middle-aged men?Just wondered.

I pretty much thought that this went out of fashon about 6 or 7 years ago. However over the last week, I have seen several people operate on the basis that if they add you, then you must add them. Someone has just also written that in their profile - that s/he will add whoever adds him/her.So...

How to get more followers on hubpages?

Is it worth sacrificing your hubscore to get more followers?I notice people do mass following in order to get more people to follow them, but I've also noticed it seems to have a direct relationship with a falling hubscore. So, Is it worth it?
