I know what you mean, Beege215e. However, I came over here from "Blogger," where I got absolutely NO feedback whatever. HubPages is far superior in the structural sense; still, of course, like you, I would like even more feedback and even challenge, more engagement.
Perhaps it just takes time. Though I've been here eight months, perhaps I, like you, need to give it more time. But I know it is frustrating -- its like you're talking to yourself. I am quite jealous of those hubbers who seem to attract dozens of comments for everything they put out...
Oh well, I just want to say I know what you mean. I agree with the advice that everyone, here, has given, and when I'm done I shall vote each of their responses up.
Keep a stiff upper lip, mate!!
Take it easy.
