Bandwagons...?

I've got an honest question for everyone.

How do these bandwagons start? Like the bandwagon blogs, and the "Pkmn" or "Gym Leader" username/avatar bandwagon?

I never even hear about these things before they are either in full swing or are well in progress. As far as avatar/username bandwagons, I would never do one, because I never want to change my username even for a second, but if I was a person who would be interested, how would I find out?

I guess I've just never understood the workings of bandwagons, or the reasoning of why people do them.

Then again, I'm probably just too stubborn to understand. XD

    The Gym Leader thing was a staff thing done. The Pkmn one was some noob thing, ask one of them.

    They start because someone starts them.

    The pkmncolors bandwagon started when one day @PkmnGreen; threatened to ban a bunch of us unless we changed our usernames to PkmnColors.

    You could just ask if people want to join. Otherwise they'll join in if they feel like it.

    Most bandwagons start when someone posts an interesting-looking blog and others decide to try it out for themselves. Then even more people say "ah, what the hell" and do it as well.

    It starts out as just a random person making a blog or something, then someone follows it. I don't think most people expect to start bandwagons.

    The Hetalia bandwagon started with me changing my username to Russia*. It was a random choice [s]and I wanted a different username than Flonne[/s]. Don't really know why people started following... XDD

    It's usually an easy to copy subject. Asking questions, answering questions, giving away opinions, etc. etc. Something that doesn't take too much effort, except perhaps in writing (though having it available for copy-pasting also works)
