      I am noticing some things that make me not want to follow you:
      NO picture
      Low score
      Only one Hub
      Following the highest people

      I think if you offer some more interesting and properly researched Hubs people will follow you.
      Good Luck

      Welcome to the Forums! smile

      Secondly, your account says that you've been here 19 months, which is longer than I have been here.

      Third, if you want to make friends and followers, I think it would be best to not lie to people about things that are easily verified.

      I only say this because of your Hubtivity shows you've not done anything you've said above. And, if you don't believe me, you can check it out for yourself, by going to your own profile and looking at the bottom, where it lists your activity on Hubpages.

      Here is a link: http://hubpages.com/profile/stephencardiff/hubtivity

    I signed up months ago but im only really starting now and I lied on the fourms to gain attention... And it worked so now I know who the interesting people are... If your quick enough to catch and point me out you must have some good work that your not getting enough views on or you could be spiteful... But also you could be Justifed... Either way I'll find out soon

      Hand still stuck in the cookie jar?

      You will find that there are quite a few hubbers around that are sharp as tacks and quick on the uptake - you won't get much by them.  And no, as a rule they are not spiteful. 

      I doubt that you will attract the kind of attention you want this way...

        True, But I am willing to help show you around. I am relatively new my self, but would be willing to help show you how to push some articles out and make an impact if you want to do so. Stephen Hubpages is like a big family and to some people it is there jobs. Adding people and not putting in any useful information will lead many peop0le to believe you are hear for a reason not stated. Test the water but in the long run I am sure you will choose the right path.

      I just read a good hub of yours, and I hope you write more of the same caliber. My advice would be not to lie to fellow hubbers to get attention though, (you shouldn't need to). Also, bear in mind many hubbers here will give sound advice, not because they need attention of their own (you only have to look at their hubber scores and followers to see this), so perhaps it might be wise not to accuse them of 'not getting enough views' or 'being spiteful'.

      Generally everyone here is open to helping a hubber who asks for it, so it does seem a bit of a 'slap in the face' if they then find you procured this help under false pretences.

      The best way to get attention is to do exactly what you claimed to have done, leave comments, follow people (if you like their work) etc, but also interact nicely on forums, read hubs, write good quality ones yourself, answer 'questions' etc. This way you get positive attention, as opposed to the pretty negative attention you have now gained!!

      A shame, I truly loved your latest hub, as it was on a topic close to my heart, the cruelty involved in the culture you described in their treatment of largely domestic pets (although not exclusively) for food or entertainment etc.
