I feel there is a bit of an "I want the reward without the work" sentiment here, because it's REALLY not that hard to get readers around here if you want to. You just have to be more proactive and introduce yourself to others. Find other fics, like yours, that are just starting out and read and review them. Are you concerned you aren't a great reviewer and wont have much to contribute? That's okay! Just contribute whatever you have. Even if it is just "Nice story, I especially like [moment]. It made me feel [happy/amused/sad/etc]". Just let people know you are contributing to their works, and it exponentially raises the likelihood that they (or one of their readers) will like yours. It's the GOOD kind of clique-iness around here that a lot of people who join or start stories at the same time all kind of bond together. You end up making friends on here, learning more about writing since you are reading and seeing what others do, and get yourself a bigger audience.
I guess what it boils down to is, if you want readers, be willing to put in the work to cultivate relationships around here and get your [screen]name out there for others to see. From there, as others have mentioned, having a banner in your signature is a BIG help, too. You can message people after you've commented on their stories (and don't forget to comment! Other people want reviews just like you do!) to say "Hey, I really enjoyed [aspects of their story]. Do you have time to help me out with mine and let me know what you enjoy and what you think I could fix?"
DP876 brings up a good point, and I used to council new writers here on that a LOT: If you're story is new, I know there's an urge to refuse to let it sink down the forum, but DON'T update it super frequently. I know you're thinking "This will make it more visible at the top of the board", but what it actually does is scare readers away. When I see a story get updated multiple times per week, I think "Geez, I'll never be able to keep up with this story; no sense starting it when I'll get drowned in new chapters before I have a chance to read and comment".
The Review Exchange (sticky'd on this forum) is your friend. Find other writers who want readers and say "Hey, want to exchange readership?" But don't just post in it and ignore everyone else's requests; be proactive and look for the requests of others. If everyone just posted their own request and ignored the requests of others, it'd be a pointless thread.
