welcome animal world, I love your avatar and I love seaworld, so I'll be your fan. It takes time to build your fan base, and you have to earn them. I went for a while without any fans and then started commenting on other peoples hubs, participating in the community.
You might concider a little used reaction called patience. Give people time to get to know you. Though this is my personal reaction, but I consider my fans my friends. It's not the number of fans I have that is important, it's the quality. Just like the quality of hubs is more important that the quantity.
