    I agree with everyone here, and would say that there's a sort of 'connection' I feel with authors that I follow.

      smile

      I also feel a sort of "connection" with my commenting followers, even if I dont follow them back. Probably cuz of the content in my hubs though. If I was writing how to buy a hat, it might not be the same.

    All good reasons, thanks for the help. I've added a few of the suggestions in my new hub along with a link to your profile. big_smile

    I follow anyone who has a very high Author score regardless if I like their topics just to learn from them. These are the hubbers who are probably making money here.

    Otherwise I look at the topics they cover and if they interest me.

    I typically follow back those who follow me as well.
