You will get readers as soon as you write interesting hubs and more than just one. As soon as readers are interested your articles they will follow you. Further, people avoid to be critical and usually only comment when they really like something or really completely dislike and disagree. Hence, don't desperate, begin to follow other writers and comment on articles you like and you'll get what you're looking for in return. Good luck!
Followers are mostly just there to look pretty; traffic (and earnings) comes primarily from outside Hubpages (Google and Social Media).
As for your hub, it currently looks quite spammy. Get rid of the bold font, put some more professional looking images in (Pixabay and Pexels are a good source for copyright free images) and expand the content a bit to give it a bit more meat.
Also think about writing in more niche topics - just think how many articles out there tell the exact same story as yours.
Thanks everyone! FYI I think I deleted my post in a half awake attempt to respond on my phone.
There you are!
I just looked at your bio and I think that you could make it more positive. It makes you appear to be resigned to your fate. Get rid of any sentences like "I had convinced myself that if I do not write my a#$ off and get "known" before I’m twenty, I would fail as a writer." I realise that you turned it around, but just reading that first paragraph was sort of blah. The last thing I want to read is 'fail as a writer', in whatever context it is written.
You shouldn't come across as jumping-off-the-wall-crazy-manic-positive either, but as an enthusiastic, professional writer who loves what he does. Ageing and the passing of time is irrelevant. Write about why you write, what else interests you and give us a reason to want to read more of your work.
Edit: Think about this: why would anyone after reading your bio, take your business advice seriously? Those tips are just reworking of info that is plastered all over the web. It's dull and unexciting. Write about your real interests. If it doesn't fit HubPages then put it elsewhere. When you have learned to feign enthusiasm about any topic at all, then you can write about business. Right now, your heart isn't in it... and it shows.

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?

Hey guys! I'm a new Hubber and I just wanted suggestions on how to get more followers and more clicks to my articles.

I joined Hubpages about three weeks ago. At the moment, my Hubscore is 86, I'm getting about 30-40 views/day, and the periodic comments I've received have been mostly positive. But I have a grand total of one follower. Is there something I am missing, or is this typical for new people like me?

What do I need to write to have followers?What should be the "Thema" of my next hub to get some followers?

Is there a way to generate more followers on Hubpages? I try to find a new Hubber at least once a week to follow. I read their articles, comment if I have something to say and then follow that Hubber. I was just wondering if this was the only way to encourage more Hubbers to follow each other.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...
