    I am struggling here - please tell me it gets easier? 

    Will the traffic pick up over time or must I always struggle and continue to constantly promote?

    I just signed up for Blogger.com but don't see how that helps - there are no links to my HubPages.

    What am I missing - a Facebook presence?

      there is a time for hubs to marinate. i don't exactly know the time, but its longer than 4 weeks. so you are doing fabulous and in the beginning, besides putting out a good number of quality articles and mingling with the web community (hopefully putting out your links appropriately) the readers will come, comment and probably a decent number of them will click on some ads. smile
      a lot of people don't backlink, they let their articles do their own work.

    Though you have written many hubs, I doubt many of them have had time to index or find their place in the ranking on most search engines. 

    Backlinking, both through your blog and through other places (check out Sunforged and Ryankett for more information) will help your articles to index faster and rank better. 

    Facebook generally does not bring that many reads.

    If you do a search on getting traffic, here on hubpages, you will come up with more articles and ideas than one could utilize in a month. smile

      Absolutely, and reading other hubs that are in the top ranked writers also will help. Check out Misha, Skyfire, Thisisoli. You can search under hubbers for them.

    Social bookmarking sites aren't the answer.  I've found they don't bring in profitable traffic.  It takes time and work at backlinking.  I backlink on She Told Me and EZine, among others as I see fit (Squidoo).  I choose my keywords carefully to increase my chances of landing on page one of Google.  I use Micro Niche Finder for that, it works beautifully (thanks, Yoshi).  Check out hubs by Yoshi, Sunforged and Ryankett who have all been instrumental in my learning curve here on HP.  Darkside's are also a must read. 

    But, 4 weeks isn't a long enough time to see substantial traffic.  I am curious how you have managed to write 117 hubs in such a short time, though.  Hope this all helps.

    Heyyy I got a mention big_smile

    GMA you have written a lot of hubs in a short time!

    First off, the easy questions, You do not need a facebook presence.

    With blogger, you can create backlinks by mentioning your Hubpages Hubs in your blogger posts, and linking through that. This does of course mean that you will have to promote blogger and hubpages to get the benefit.

    Traffic takes time to acheive, and you could improve it by interlinking your Hubs, and backlinking (check my backlinking guide).  Do you have any keyword practices? Keyword optimization is one of the most important things that you will need to do.

    You could also sign up to amazon associates and make money through that with your hub topics!

    As I have said a few times also, *set a schedule*. Write Hubs, promote, read Hubs, promote, write articles, promote, etc. big_smile you will get into a rhythm in no time and everything will be 2nd nature.

    You don't have to promote your hubs via social networking and bookmarking sites.

    If the content is original it will get indexed. If it's about a subject that others are searching for, it will eventually get traffic.

    Don't throw yourself at every promoting technique that others are using. Get to know and understand how it works before attempting it. Then ease into it slowly. Don't go hard and fast.

    Making money online, despite what the gurus say, is not a quick sprint, it requires a marathon effort. For that you must pace yourself, be patient, and know what you're doing.
