Well, I am glad that I posted asking what happened to all of my artisans because a problem has been found and solved. Apparently, I have been missing emails. You see, I have a junk email folder, and I check it regularly. But people that I correspond with often suddenly stopped sending emails, or so I thought.
Finding out that people have been writing to me prompted me to visit my ISP where I found an online spam folder that should not be collecting spam. Needless to say, I have received all emails within the last month (it deletes any before then, so I am sure that I have lost lots of important emails without realizing) and I have prevented it from doing so in the future.
Now I have a couple artisans to feature, so my mood has improved immensely. I will try to feature one tonight or tomorrow, and then we'll have one once per week on Fridays until I run out of victims, I mean volunteers. :-D
Thanks to everyone for helping me solve this little issue. Hopefully, I'll be back on track very soon.
