Interesting Question and I don't Believe in the nearly Two years I have been on GAG that I have answered This.
All of my life, my main mission in my own life, personally speaking, has been to Help Others with their problems. In coming on GAG, I was Able, by the Grace of God, to Continue my Life's Mission to Continue Helping others in need of Some wise ol owl advice.
Any Answer that I Give and MHO when it should Come, is because Someone trusts my Advice as Being Wise and Sometimes Feel it's the Best from the Rest.
I don't believe it is because it is Because I have many Followers or friends to boot, but also my Reputation as Having as many MHO has gotten me far, and people feel comfortable in Someone they Feel they can trust who may be the One at that given moment to Help them in their time of need.
I don't always stop there, for many times over, they will Continue to come to me for more in Store for More good advice.
Good luck. xx
