... just wondering how you've acquired the majority of your followers...
When i first started my cult, I asked myself the same question. It's been a little easier on Hubpages though!
its easy just hang out in the religion forums
hope that helps
I think a lot of mine were wandering around in the same random circle I was.... I'm slow, so eventually, they caught up.
Seriously though, don't stress about it. It just sort of happens. Forum participation helps... and as you publish, and someone catches a hub title that interests them, you'll gain a reader, and maybe a follower.
The community is great, so I've enjoyed gaining new followers and following others and reading a great deal, but, as many will tell you, if you happen to be here for the cash, don't worry about followers in the slightest... Other hubbers are not where your adsense clicks and Amazon sales come from.
The real question is, how do you make a cool collage like that?
They say "absence makes the heart grow fonder." So what I did was, I joined the site and made my first hub in January and then a few forum posts and then pretty much ceased all activity until today.
I'm waiting now for a vast gathering to form around me, but it's kind of hard to announce "Hey everybody, I'm back!" when not only did no one notice you were gone, but no one knew you were ever there to begin with!
To anyone reading this, I instead say, "follow me now while you have the chance - for I may disappear and you'll completely forget about following me!"
I'll report back on how it works out.
When you read and like a hubbers style you leave a meaningful, well thought out comment. Then you join their fan club. Most hubbers will return the favor and come to read one of your hubs .. they will become your follower if they like what they read. Make sence?
attract .. oh my .. I think it's WAY past my bedtime. There's no erase button on this forum so I can't take back my misspellings. I guess I'll just eat this GREAT BIG humble pie right now. :0)

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push my numbers over 200. That is great. However, most of these people have not only...

August 29, 2014 - Friday.Before I say my peace, I want to tell you that this forum post is not aimed at any one hubber or group of hubbers. It is aimed at every single person who comes to HubPages and who does the any of the following:After joining HubPages, there are newbies who write at least one...

Dear New Fan. Thank you for recently following me and bringing my followers total up to 1700. I think the number 1700 looks a lot better than 1699 on my followers list and I have been hoping that this event would happen soon.Now you might think that 1700 followers is a big deal. Well, it is and it...

Not complaining but I don't understand hub. In an attempt to get involved, I started following a lot of Hubbers. Many of them followed me back and I am seeing a dramatic increase in viewing traffic for my hubs. I guess Hub didn't like this since they took my score from 89 to currently 78 and...

I was just about to toot my own horn here in the forums because I had wonderfully acquired 600 followers. I double-checked my profile and to my horror, someone had abandoned my ship! So I thought I'd ask why other hubbers choose to un-follow writers...What's your take?
