    You have the opportunity to develop great relationships with people.  They grew from what you have to offer and you grow from their questions and comments.  If your into a specific topic, thinking about and finding out answers your followers have that are related to that topic makes you even better at it.

    With followers, you have a number of advantages.  Your visibility on hubpage platform increased and you are noted by other hubbers.  They also presume that you are serious on this platform.  Above all your traffic will be increased and your viewership also improves.  Moreover by reading hubs of your followers, your knowledge also gets polished and it will surely boost up your over all knowledge as well confidence too.  Further comments from your followers help you how your hubs being treated and it gives you useful tips for further improvement.  Thus by following and having followers, both parties are mutually benefiting.  So never miss this golden opportunity  by following and get followed by others.  Encourage your followers and thank them whenever they post their comments.

    Following other Hubbers means you get email updates regarding their latest Hubs, so you can read Hubs by Hubbers that you want to read.

    Having followers not only boosts your writer's ego, but also alerts other Hubbers when you publish a new Hub, which increases the chances that it will be read and possibly shared with others.

      HubPages is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to find next.  There certainly is a wide variety of content on HP, and some of it is quite unique and creative.  Welcome to HubPages Stacey!

    Honestly. I like to write,but have to say I need others' comments to make me feel that I'm contributing something valid or not.
    When I follow,I check first if I can offer constructive comments or friendly "me too" comments. If I have no interest in a person's views and attitudes I don't follow.
    People on hubpages don't have to be insulting about your effort for you to get the helpful message when they feel you need help.
    And besides,I like to see notifications and comments of any kind,makes my life more interesting.  Sad as that sounds.
    Good question!

      Good points, baygirl!  I'm relatively new to writing but I know how excited I get when I see a notification so I understand that point well!
