Any advice from the Hubpages veterans on how to develop a following? Thanks in advance
You have already been noticed.
Be patient, you have only been here 6 days!! You can try some of the following methods. But you will mainly develop a following through what you write about. You can become an expert in one or two niches so people have to refer to your hubs for advice and knowledge.
Write hubs that may help other hubbers.
Take part daily in the forums.
Try doing some of the contests.
Leave insightful and thoughtful comments on people you follow.
Cause trouble with your comments in the religious forum.
Ask questions and reply to others.
Follow people who you like and leave fan mail.
It's Ok to disagree with fellow hubbers, but be respectful at all times.
I'll second Brian's response
Without causing trouble in the religious forum court a little cotroversy which always gets you noticed!
You would be suprised how many people like to see good debate
16 followers in 6 days seems to be a great start tho!
I've been on here for just over a month and starting to see some recognition- though it'll be a long term thing. My first month is documented in
the most important thing to remember is do NOT send nude pictures of yourself to other Hubbers...
I tried that and my Hubscore dropped to -45
As long as your landing gear is different than the Greek One's - then photos are generally accepted
It seems it actually was not a really Cold Day the day he was snapped
Besides... his photo was not Original and had been Digitally Enhanced to create the appearance that he was of larger stature!
Of course.. Marketing.. Yes.. Sorry, that's what that US Politician Weener said as well, when he got caught 'fertering' his frank online!
I don't think his wife believed him though.. I think she recognized his buns!
Mind you..... with a name like that, he would be well known at baseball matches, I guess.
Isn't Weener the American name for a sausage?! just thought I'd ask!
Yes... I believe so Nell
Weener = Small Uncut version of a frankferter
Wiener = Jewish version
Strange name for a Politician who flashes himself online!
the funny thing is... and i am not making this up... his mother originally wanted to name him Oscar Meyer, while his father, being of Russian ancestry, wanted to name him Yuri
Your forum post has done a lot to get you noticed. We are all part of a community so posting to the forum brings your name to people's attention.
I don't follow the religious forum posts but do know from some hubs they can get controversial. I actually gained a follower by placing a comment on a hub discussing a religious topic.
I am a christian but don't see any point in forcing my way of thinking on anyone.
I really enjoyed the hub of yours I read, like the one who commented above me I also read if from beginning to end.
Keep up the good work and I will be looking forward to seeing more.
Getting noticed is one thing. Being in the forums, answering or asking questions will definitely do that.
Getting followers is another. Writing rich, high quality content will have persons wanting to read more of your work and will definitely gain you some fans.
Thanks everybody for the great feedback and advice. I suppose I really do just need to persevere, and more than anything keep writing more hubs!
Nothing special. Take part in all aspects of the community. You'll get noticed.
I was considering writing a hub on coats made from kitten fur to get noticed. It would probably just get my house firebombed...again...
Oh I don't know - check out this one, written by a mad hubber in response to Stan Fletcher's contest.

There were some crazy hubs written for a while back then...
I knew a lady a long time ago... she wasn't a friend, I just knew her, and she made her car seat covers from roadkill cats. And her name was Cat, which was funny because she hated cats. I thought her seat covers were pretty until I asked her what kind of fur it was, and then when I looked, there was some calico, some striped, etc.
Something like that will get you noticed, but I don't advise it.
Well, since my comment above I finally got noticed.
Now, how to deal with the fame.. and the money.. oh my goodness. the money.
Just a note: I do volunteer work with the local pound. I don't use products that have been tested on animals and I'm a quasi vegetarian. I would not really ever consider making a coat... or any other article of clothing or food... out of kittens.
Exhusbands, yes, kittens no.
You can share the fame with me Mark, lord knows I don't need any more money.
There are a couple of ex wives who would love a coat made out of my skin. They both said I made a good boy friend and lover but once the wedding bells rang I made a lousy husband. I think a lot of this had to do with once I said I do, they started saying I don't.
Caution never marry a woman who likes drinking and drugs better than men.
A word of advice if you smoke cigarettes never marry a woman who can't stand the smell of them.
Write a lot of quality hubs and take part in the forums and answering questions, commenting on hubs etc.

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Browsing through some forums I noticed that there are many bullies on Hubpages
