      wayne, welcome to HP, I think the best way to get more fans is simply to be a great writer, participating in the community here, commenting on other hubs, commenting if you want in the forums.
      the more people get to know you, you will gain more fans, it does take time. you want your fans to be genuine fans, it's not like twitter or facebook where some have a trillion followers.
      read lots of hubs and make sure you've read and follow the HPguidelines and you'll gain fans! enjoy. smile

    Why not home girl?

    I feel like writers can help each other out if we build each other up as writers.

    I am hoping to secure fans and become their fans. Taking an active role by commenting and encouraging others.

        Thank you! I am trying to build a network of like minded individuals who want to support each other in our efforts as writers. Some people don't understand!

      wayne, here's another thread that has some good advice.

      http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/25336#post466833

      it helps to take a look also at those hubbers who have lots of fans, what do they write about, how do they participate in the community? the really good ones have earned their fans.
      it looks like you have some good hubs and the fans will come~~

      remember like field of dreams~~ build it and they will come. big_smile

    No offense, but just randomly becoming a fan of people is pretty meaningless. I like when people have a genuine interest in what I write and I like being able to keep up with people that interest me. So the fan feature has value, but just adding a bunch of people hoping they will add you too contributes little to that. If you want to support other hubbers, read the hubs that interest you and leave substantive comments that contribute to the discussion.

      You must have misunderstood. I am searching for fans who have my same interest. Not random fans. I agree with what you are saying. You should read my hub "Be my fan" to fully understand.

      We are actually in agreement.

      (nods feverishly in agreement)

      i have never asked anyone to become my fan...they just did. and i fan someone if they fan me and they are not trolls, but i honestly don't do it just to get more fans. i guess i want to know that people fanned me because they really like my work, not because i compelled them to do it.

        Again, we are in agreement. I am asking people to become my fan that are interested in my topics and hubs. You really should read my hub, "Be my Fan!"

                why so condescending and angry?

                there may be more than one way to skin a cat?

                you have your way, i have mine.

                if you don't appreciate me, leave me be. no hard feelings.

                good luck to you.

                i think outside the box. sorry to offend you.

                  Angry? There's no anger in those posts. If you interpreted it as such then it's just another mistake you've made.

                  Panhandling for fans is almost as bad as famming.

                  First find out what's inside the box before you try and think outside of it.

                    I'm having great success here on hubpages. In only 3 weeks I am making money on both amazon and google. My search engine traffic is growing exponentially. My hub "Give Bluegrass a Chance" has been nominated as a hubnugget, and is in 1st place.

                    I have become fans of the writers I admire and they have helped me to this success. Now I am trying to find like minded individuals who enjoy my writing and who want to help each other in our efforts on hubpages.

                    I am sorry to offend, but it's seems if you don't have anything nice to say, why say anything at all?

                  I really do hate to break it to you, but starting a thread in the forums asking everyone to read your latest hub and/or to be your fan is about as deep inside the box as you can get right alongside the "why haven't I made any money after two or three weeks?" threads. You've managed to hit two out of the three in this thread alone. Somebody else will start a thread featuring yet another variation of those outside the box ideas next week and the week after.

                  I see what you are saying an I am going to read your Hubs Wayne, I think being friendly with like-minded people has alot of merits.
                  Bit pointless conversing with people with zero common interests.

    Wayne, I've read your Hub now.  You repeatedly beg people to become your fan on the principle of "helping each other out".

    If you had posted in one of the topic threads relevant to your interests, and asked who else had the same interests, you'd have got a totally different response.  But writing a Hub purely to get attention is not the right way to get the right kind of attention...

    Hi Wayne, I joined your fan club- I just read (and watched the interview) "Veterans Refused Service at Veteran Hospitals." For what its worth, I probably wouldn't have stumbled across it had I not seen this thread.

    i checked out your hub page . and read the sea turtle one. which  was pretty good. but im not really in to most of the other hubs subject matter.  i like short story's and poems. and individual thoughts and idea expressions .its easy to pump up ones fan base just by joining  others. but i dont do that
