    Am I at risk for committing a huge Hubber faux pas for asking for help on getting some fans?   I currently have ZERO, and it makes me sad.

    Please don't yell at me if I have behaved badly by asking!  I am still new and learning the ropes a bit.  Thank you.

        Pro, I think she has them written but not published or even online, maybe in a journal or something.

        If you want fans publish your works, I'm sure if its good content you will get some fans in no time smile

        Hope this helps,

            Yes, this is really weird. I can see her articles listed in her profile page but the number of hubs shows up as "zero". Is this a glitch?

    Ann, there are two schools of thought about "fans" here on HubPages.

    Some people view them a bit like friends on Facebook or Myspace, and play "I'll be your fan if you'll be mine" games.  Others take the term literally - i.e, a fan is someone who admires your work. 

    Personally, I prefer the second definition - it's a great feeling to have that kind of fan, because it's a validation that your writing has some merit.  Whereas if people are only joining to be nice, it tells you nothing!    So I will only become a fan if I genuinely like someone's writing, because I'd rather have a few real fans than 500 friends being kind! 

    However, everyone's entitled to make their own choice about how they want to use the fan system.

    As people notice your Hubs, you'll get fans.  Patience is a virtue!
