First I would start out by writing about something other then Lockerz. If you want a wide audience you need to appeal to a varied and diverse group. Specializing can be a good thing but not when it is carried too far. Start branching out. I won't fan you because you don't write about the things that interest me. Write more, explore your options and stretch yourself.
You're putting the cart before the horse.
Here's a four step plan to getting fans.
1) Publish good articles.
2) Publish good articles.
3) Publish good articles.
4) Check how many fans you have. Then repeat step 1.
The entire time I have been here I have never asked for a single fan. I write Hubs, I comment on other Hubs and I am quite active in the forums.
Because of this I am building a nice fan base which we all know wont do much for the money here but it doesnt hurt to have fans.
Just keep writing and like it has been said earlier, move on from your single topic. Branch out and write about everything.
I agree with all Dale is saying.
I think fans are important, you never know, a fan might like your hub well enough to link it into their blog or use it in an article, which means back links for you.
What about becoming someone's fan simply out of respect for their writing without preconceived gain prospects? What I like best about some of my fans is that we click, we can communicate on a mutual level, which is a pleasure all of its own more valuable than any financial or ego boosting gain.
Be nice, post on other's hubs, read other's hubs carefully before posting so as to be able to give an intelligent response, write good quality material well researched, be active on the forums and answer posts made to your own hubs, even if only to say "thanks for the comment".
You are so right about reading the hubs carefully. Nothing more annoying or obvious then someone running around just putting up random comments.
If I really have no comment after I read the Hub I will rate it up as long as it deserves it and most do with the occasional exception.

Would you rather publish a set of hubs at once or will you publish them one by one?If you have a set of hubs ready to be published, say 5-10 hubs drafted, not yet published.

Dear Hubbers. I've recently noticed so many changes on Hubpages. I had no internet for a week and upon my return things look so different. I like the cleaner white pages with the underline beneath the titles. The column width seems narrower, while now advertisements show up on both left and right...
