As a few people have mentioned, there are a lot of hubs available connected to your question, and hubbers have different styles, so you should be able to find some answers that suit you - have fun discovering them!
Also, in connection with Sherry's mention of attitude, HubPages does seem to be a good example of the 'give and you shall receive' maxim. From your profile, I would say this makes sense to you - do remember to read about yourself there, too, and smile!
While it can be hard to maintain a positive attitude when experiencing difficulties, I always feel better when I think I have something to offer others - so commenting on other people's hubs and answering questions can be a boost. This can also bring attention to you and your work and then boost both.
Of course, you may already be doing this - if so, I'd say that's something worth keeping up. And please don't allow over-expectation to pull you down - you've not been here long, after all, and I have read a lot that says interest builds over time.
Very best wishes!
