Since gaining editor status, I've gained a lot of new followers. It's sweet that people want to see what I post and keep me in their list, but I don't care about how many followers. How do you feel about getting followers?

To be honest, they have a little bit importance.
It means they like what I post here. They appreciate my knowledge. They laugh on my jokes. They like my wit. They find my questions interesting. They admire myTakes. They want to see more from me.
It acts as a validation that I'm doing well on this site. I don't beg for new followers, I don't kiss ass and they don't give me food to survive but they really give me a satisfaction which is more than enough :)1

I don't care honestly. I don't like to follow a lot of people because it can get overwhelming when I'm checking on friends to see what they may have answered to a question.
So I typically only follow people I have spoken with more than a handful of times.1
