I Need More Followers

More Followers I Need

I Need More Followers. If you already follow me, go get a family member. I care about you, but if you bring me more fans I'll care about you even more. If you're not yet following me, please read on as I explain how important you are to me.

Some hubbers have upwards of 1000 followers. According to FactMonster.com:

"Each NFL team is allowed to have 53 players on its roster (plus a five-player practice squad). The NFL has 32 teams, making a total of 1,696 players. "

Therefore a hubber with 1000 followers has an organization that is 58.96% of the average National Football League. That's impressive.

I want that.

I Want More Followers than Congress People

The Congress of the United States consists of 100 Senators and 435 Representatives. I want more. I will not rest until I have at least 536 HubPages followers. Then I will rest a little. I will stop and smell the roses while enjoying a mocha latte with light foam.

Together we can do this.

I Want More Followers than I have Credit Cards

Last year the average American human received 623 free offers for credit cards. I want at least that many followers; we can all get credit cards with our faces on them. We can all go to Starbucks together and charge luscious biscotti.

This hubber has way too many followers
This hubber has way too many followers

I Want More HubPages Fans than Hubber Henry

I mean, really, the guy is just way too existential to be taken seriously. Who actually reads his stuff?

We all like him. He's the life of the party at HubCon. He lets us fish in his pond. He's just not worthy of massive fannage.

You Need Motivation to Follow Me?

Join the teeming throngs, the huddled masses, the caffeine-fueled reading rainbow maniacs who charge out of bed each morning knowing they belong to something worldwide. Be a part of something. Don't stand on the sidelines wondering what everyone's discussing 'round the water cooler. Jump in with both feet. Be all you can be. Make me all that I can be. Let's be something together.

Act Now Before It's Too Late

Very soon I will be closing by account to new followers. My aura can handle a limited number of sycophants. Don't miss out. You may wake up one morning and look back wistfully on what might have been. You could have been a member of my Hub Posse. The water is warm and the tide is high.

You must choose, but choose wisely.

      I am looking to get more followers. I follow a lot of people. I don't have nearly as many followers. I will start to follow anyone who follows me.

      And I love you too nicomp, I have loved you ever since you decided that I was satans spawn, whenever that was. Having a life outside of hubpages, lol thats a joke, coming from somebody who has published more hubs than me and used to post on the forums on a daily basis. My dry wit has seen me published in quite a few American magazines mate, although you dont generally consider Florida to be America of course - they are far too happy and layed back I suppose. Best wishes, Ryan xx

      Sigh. For those of you who have a life outside HubPages, the preceding was brought to you by a hubber who fancies herself a master of dry wit. It's funny to her when she writes it. Don't take it seriously.

      Charming, you have the social skills of a knat on heroin, its not like you didn't leave utter tripe on my hubs for weeks. This hub is pretty poor anyway, it serves no purpose other than to allow you to wax your ego, I learnt nothing - there are 500,000 much more informative hubs. I will never get that 30 seconds of my life back.

      Shall I consider myself indoctrinated? I hope this isn't going to be like one of those rides that flails and whirls and sends its rider straight to say goodbye to the corn dog he ate earlier which he suddenly regrets now.

      Nicomp, you are so right. We can never have too many followers. We should encourage all our followers to have large families so that their children and their children's children will also follow us. We should have as many followers as grains of sand on the beach or stars in the heavens...

      I have to admit that I've been following you for a long time now. I usually hide out behind the bushes by your bedroom window and like to peek in through the shades while you're having your oats in the morning. I wish you'd stop watching Jimmy Fallon as he is talentless and I can't stay up that long. I'll keep following you everywhere you go. Forever! :)

      Maybe an anti-inlammatory along with the anti-histamine-try it for 10 days -should work.

      You need anti-histamines for that swollen ego. I'm sure it's only a temporary reaction.
