A lot of them are new. So I guess my hubs are showing up quite frequently on the front page, or something. Either way, it's not like people are following me because I've followed them. I just actually seem to be picking up one new follower every day.

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...
