      all i can tell you dude, is that all it takes is time.  sure you may not make too many right away, but you will if you keep at it.  however, my best advice to you is what satomko said to me.  just look around hubpages and become a fan of people that write hubs that peak your interest on some level, as some of them will be gracious like me.  not saying you should become a fan of mine, but just giving you an example okay.  however, most hubbers are like me, where they'll fan who ever else follows their work.  that's one sure way to gain fans.

      another thing you can do is just participate in forums.  share your opinions with those here, and people will become your friends.  once they do, they'll more than likely fan you too because they like you.

        Thanks Steve for being gracious. I am wondering whether I will make a few pennies out of hubpages, once my hub count hits 25.

          your welcome.  it really depends on various things.  some people are different from others.  as not all hubs are going to generate that kind of money when you hit 25 hubs. just be sure to submit each hub site address to google, as that will be one key to your success.

          another key is how original the topics are and how good you are as a writer.

        You got a lot of good advice here.  Mine would be to not ask for followers - many people would be put off by that.  Patience...

      Are you in a rush? Relax. Get to know your way around, even write a few more hubs. The Hubbers, if they like your writing, will come.

      Old saying - You build it and they will come. So, keep at it. smile

      Hi cagsil,
      Thanks for ur consoling reply. But, is my topic interesting to get more followers? Im writing about kids.

      1. Cagsil profile image72
        Cagsilposted 13 years agoin reply to this

        I think kids can be a good topic, it blends to both sides of the equation, which is male and female. However, since I haven't read your writing, to know what you know about kids, considering I don't have any myself....would be kind of useless to me.

        However, as you'll learn, you won't be able to stay on that topic for long, and will need to diversify an arrangement of different Hubs.

        So, only time will tell. But, socializing within the community is a good step. smile

      When your Impression meets the criteria of other hubbers of deciding who want to follow they.

      Including your way & topic of writing.
      Well you write on Kids, thinking females would get attract more.

      Don't worry.

      People never follow me. Why? I guess it's because I don't have a like-able personality. I have Asperger's though, so that sort of makes sense....

      Someone followed me within a few minutes of signing up to this site. That was kind of a surprise.

      If you build it (Hubs), they will come.

      I couldn't agree more.
      When you put pen to paper about something that you are passionate about in your life, if you write something that is familiar to you, you will find that the words will come. The more times you do it (write hubs and go into forums, etc) the more people will notice you and follow, Good Luck and God Bless for having the courage to to do this. Have faith it will happen, just give it time, okay We all go through the same process, it is frustrating at first, but please don't give up, just keep trying. For encouragement you have another follower from Beautybabe.

      Write some comments on hubs you like, follow the writers of these hubs, write some fan mail and invite them to follow you, it is one way to get more followers.

      I had the same question! I'm new to hubbing too and have no idea how I'll get people to read my stuff. I think people's advice about reading and commenting on other hubs is the best plan. Good luck.

      Prakash, write better content and follow others that is the only way to get followers. Think long term and get some visitors for yourself.
