It seems to me that it might be useful to have the questions you are participating in or following / favorited readily available from your home page. In order to go back to my questions I have to access my profile and follow from there. Since this might be a very common option, one might make it more direct: one could add a new tab "followed / favorited" or "participating" inside the "questions" one.

    $\begingroup$ Oddly enough, I can't find any such feature requests on Meta Stack Exchange...Seems like a suggestion with network-wide relevance (this is also to say we're unlikely to have any CV-specific implementation). It could be straightforward enough, but it might involve some programming complexity that they don't want to add to the main questions page, since only these proposed tabs would display personalized results. Nice idea anyway; I'd like to see it happen, if it wouldn't be too expensive or risky somehow... $\endgroup$ – Nick Stauner May 5 '14 at 21:09

    $\begingroup$ +1 Being able to follow questions you're participating in/interested in would be great. Notifications are great if someone responds to you with an @, or someone posts a comment under your answer, but you can miss plenty. I would more often award bounties on other people's questions and answers if I had a way of marking them for followup after a couple of days (since you have to wait a couple of days to start a bounty). $\endgroup$ – Glen_b May 7 '14 at 0:23

This doesn't exist right now, but there's some stuff in the works that may speak to some of these requests. Until then, there is a workaround, though! Here's how it works. When you mark a tag as a favorite tag, all of its questions on the homepage show up highlighted in blue:

The next part of the trick: if you click "edit" next to Favorite Tags, you'll be given the choice to add ignored tags. This grays out questions on the homepage from tags you aren't interested in:

Now, the third and final part of the trick: go to your profile page and click the "preferences" tab. There, you'll find a radio button that will let you hide questions in tags you've chosen to ignore:

enter image description here

This will leave you with a homepage that only has questions from your favorite tags and tags you have neither favorited nor ignored. The questions in favorite tags will still be highlighted blue. It's not exactly what you're asking for, but it helps to filter your homepage view a little bit so you're more likely to see questions you're interested in right off the bat.
