I am so sorry! I just found hundreds of emails people sent me over the last month (maybe longer). For the most part, these were emails sent in response to my newsletter. I use my gmail address. At some point (in November), gmail started flagging these as spam. Consequently, they were not forwarded to the inbox I use. I never saw them!
Gmail automatically deletes “spam” after thirty days. This has gone on longer than that. Typically, people do respond to my newsletters. Not in droves, but generally I do hear from people and I did notice a drop off. Unfortunately, I did not make a tie. And then Christmas came…
Without fail, I hear from people, Christmas time. Not this year! I got like…. ten emails. I noticed this and just automatically thought it was my fault. Seriously! Or that maybe people were just horribly sad and I didn’t realize it. In whatever case, it still didn’t register.
Today, I found the mails. I am really, really, really sorry.
