I was visiting one of my hubs and saw the 'follow wrylilt' link. Just for a laugh I decided to click it. Here is the result.
You cannot follow yourself
You're not that desperate for followers, are you?
Nice one, HP!
Haha, nice, WryLilt! I was just wondering the same thing a couple of days ago... I won't have to click now 'cos you've already told what will happen.
I tried it in the very first day in HP.
Do you know what really happens when you follow yourself?
Your head goes up your own.....oh wait I can't say that here.
To follow oneself:
An act of dedication.
An act of servitude.
An act of desperation.
An act of confusion.
An act to end all acts.
It's refreshing to know HP has a sense of humor, WryLilt. I'm impressed that you had the cojones to try this, I never did, fearing my computer would certainly implode!
Tried that some time ago to see what happens and liked the humor.
when I first signed on to HP I hit that button and got the funny message which certainly helped convince me I was in the right place! I'll try just about anything once!
My youngest daughter says that one of the first things she learned was:
"Don't follow Dad. He has no idea where he is going. Follow Mom. She knows."
It is really funny to know so many people tried this. Could not even think of it. I like HP's line though!!

What happens if you follow yourself on Hubpages?Yeah, I know it sounds daft, but I was just updating one of my hubs and I almost clicked on the 'follow' button without thinking. It's been a long day. But I wonder what would happen? Would you go back in time? Start to fade away like Marti McFLy? Or...

I promise to fill your Twitter-filled lives with tasty and informative nuggets of HubPages goodness. Well, that as well as some completely random mumbo-jumbo. It'll be...

So, here's my rant for the day....just today...tomorrow it'll be different.Am I the only one that believes that if someone randomly and out of nowhere "follows" you.....just take a minute to, at the very least, look at their profile page and maybe even "follow" them back. ...

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...
