I appreciate it. I am really trying to make more connections on hubpages.
wayne, welcome to HP, I think the best way to get more fans is simply to be a great writer, participating in the community here, commenting on other hubs, commenting if you want in the forums.
the more people get to know you, you will gain more fans, it does take time. you want your fans to be genuine fans, it's not like twitter or facebook where some have a trillion followers.
read lots of hubs and make sure you've read and follow the HPguidelines and you'll gain fans! enjoy.
Why not home girl?
I feel like writers can help each other out if we build each other up as writers.
I am hoping to secure fans and become their fans. Taking an active role by commenting and encouraging others.
wayne, here's another thread that has some good advice.
it helps to take a look also at those hubbers who have lots of fans, what do they write about, how do they participate in the community? the really good ones have earned their fans.
it looks like you have some good hubs and the fans will come~~
remember like field of dreams~~ build it and they will come.
Wayne I said it before "If you comment they will come" Be patient and try what rebekahELLE says. Oh and welcome to HP!
No offense, but just randomly becoming a fan of people is pretty meaningless. I like when people have a genuine interest in what I write and I like being able to keep up with people that interest me. So the fan feature has value, but just adding a bunch of people hoping they will add you too contributes little to that. If you want to support other hubbers, read the hubs that interest you and leave substantive comments that contribute to the discussion.
You must have misunderstood. I am searching for fans who have my same interest. Not random fans. I agree with what you are saying. You should read my hub "Be my fan" to fully understand.
We are actually in agreement.
(nods feverishly in agreement)
i have never asked anyone to become my fan...they just did. and i fan someone if they fan me and they are not trolls, but i honestly don't do it just to get more fans. i guess i want to know that people fanned me because they really like my work, not because i compelled them to do it.
Again, we are in agreement. I am asking people to become my fan that are interested in my topics and hubs. You really should read my hub, "Be my Fan!"
Quit while you're still... only a little bit behind.
why so condescending and angry?
there may be more than one way to skin a cat?
you have your way, i have mine.
if you don't appreciate me, leave me be. no hard feelings.
good luck to you.
i think outside the box. sorry to offend you.
Angry? There's no anger in those posts. If you interpreted it as such then it's just another mistake you've made.
Panhandling for fans is almost as bad as famming.
First find out what's inside the box before you try and think outside of it.
I'm having great success here on hubpages. In only 3 weeks I am making money on both amazon and google. My search engine traffic is growing exponentially. My hub "Give Bluegrass a Chance" has been nominated as a hubnugget, and is in 1st place.
I have become fans of the writers I admire and they have helped me to this success. Now I am trying to find like minded individuals who enjoy my writing and who want to help each other in our efforts on hubpages.
I am sorry to offend, but it's seems if you don't have anything nice to say, why say anything at all?
I see this has nothing to do with what anyone is talking about.
EYEAM4ANARCHY nailed it.
If you don't have anything new to bring, don't pretend that it's groundbreaking.
your low self esteem obviously drives you to try and bring others down. try uplifting others, it will do wonders for your own attitude. up with hope!
I really do hate to break it to you, but starting a thread in the forums asking everyone to read your latest hub and/or to be your fan is about as deep inside the box as you can get right alongside the "why haven't I made any money after two or three weeks?" threads. You've managed to hit two out of the three in this thread alone. Somebody else will start a thread featuring yet another variation of those outside the box ideas next week and the week after.
I have been here only 3 weeks, and I am making money everyday. Did you say the same at 3 weeks?
I'm doing perfectly fine. As much as I would like to waste time arguing with you over unverifiable stuff on a message board, a guy from Yahoo Answers challenged me to meet him somewhere for a fight, so I'll be busy with him.
I do have to apologize for underestimating you though: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/27098#post526380
Seems you hit the trifecta.
I see what you are saying an I am going to read your Hubs Wayne, I think being friendly with like-minded people has alot of merits.
Bit pointless conversing with people with zero common interests.
Anyone else? I am interested in comments, and watching this forum.
Wayne, I've read your Hub now. You repeatedly beg people to become your fan on the principle of "helping each other out".
If you had posted in one of the topic threads relevant to your interests, and asked who else had the same interests, you'd have got a totally different response. But writing a Hub purely to get attention is not the right way to get the right kind of attention...
Hi Wayne, I joined your fan club- I just read (and watched the interview) "Veterans Refused Service at Veteran Hospitals." For what its worth, I probably wouldn't have stumbled across it had I not seen this thread.
i checked out your hub page . and read the sea turtle one. which was pretty good. but im not really in to most of the other hubs subject matter. i like short story's and poems. and individual thoughts and idea expressions .its easy to pump up ones fan base just by joining others. but i dont do that

I have seen that some hubbers have put on a very few hubs - not even niche hub topics. But they have several fans.I just added my 100th HubPage today! But I have got only 80 fans. (1) Are there any tips for getting more FANS for your hubpages?(2) Also I would like to know if it...

I would like to be able to see or know why another hubber has become a fan. I know, I know...Just ask, but that hasn't worked as of yet. Anyone else feel the same way or am I just a loose screw? Maybe a "Which hub influenced you to become a fan?" requirement...

I wondered if anyone can inform me of this.Thanks... Im still learning!
by vkent7441 10 years ago
So I am fairly new here and have written a few hubs, but to my surprise, no one has found my work yet. I can't seem to grow my fan base. I read a lot of everyone elses stuff and comment on everyones hubs, but I just get ignored. How do you make friends on here? How do you get your work noticed and...
by justone331 10 years ago
This jus doesnt make sense to me....I spent countless hours faning people and writing sincere comments about their hubs, but I just dont seem to get the love back..am I the only one that notices this? And if im not can someone please give me an explanation as to why people do this.......God, you...
