Here's the newest top 3....
Please promote them by, votes, tweets, googles, likes, comments and sharing their work wherever you can online.
When it's your turn in the top 3, you will be promoted in the same way by other members!
I was preoccupied with saving my marriage and family... which by the way I am happy to say we are gonna make it.
So again, I will catch up and for those of you currently promoting me... I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I've promoted James Dierker and Judy Brand. I'm not sure if James is watching this thread or not, but I thought I'd let him know that he can vote on his own images as well (I'm relatively new, and this was a revelation to me). I went through a bunch of them and I was the first one to vote.
Unfortunately Betty Swifts account has also been closed.
Looks like the third time is the charm!
I checked the account of the next person in line, Kate Farrant. She has an active account.
One more time this weeks top 3 are.......

I accidentally deleted the master list from the first post on this thread, then luckily had a copy on the previous Promote An Artist list.
However, if you don't see your name on the list, please re post it in this thread so I can get your name on the list again.
I'm trying something new with the Promote An Artist thread.
Whenever I switch out the top 3, I'll be starting a thread devoted to those 3 artists only. That thread will remain active during their week at the top.
Use that thread to post images of theirs that you like and to tell us how you promoted them.
Hopefully this will give the 3 at the top for that week maximum exposure and promotions!
Here's a link to the thread devoted to this week's top 3.....
In order for this thread to work ALL participating members who are on the master list have to support each other.
That only works if we ALL support the top 3.
When our name is on the top, we will want other members to promote us.
I need to know who wants to continue to participate in this thread, in order to make sure only those members are in the master list.
It's not fair to the active participants to be promoting those that are no longer active.
If you want to continue participating, POST YOUR NAME IN THIS THREAD to verify that you want to continue to participate (which means you agree to promote the top 3 in some way every week).
I will add the hash tag "#", to all names who respond to this message.
That way I will know who wants to continue participation.
If you don't post your name within the next few days, I will assume that means you don't want to participate and I will remove your name from the list to be promoted.
I'll make a note that you want to continue participation on this thread and will leave your name on the list.
I realize we can't promote everyone I just ask that whoever is on the master list do what they can.
I want to be fair to those who are active and that we're not wasting time promoting people who aren't active anymore.
Instead of deleting names of people who don't contact me, I'll put those names in the "Artists On Hiatus" section.
If you DO contact me and want to remain on the list, I'll make a note of it by adding a hash tag "#", in front of your name and moving your name up toward the top of the list.
If you contact me and let me know you want to be removed from the list, I'll take care of that.
I'm going to keep this thread going even only a few people want to participate.
The positive thing is that those who are participating, will receive more promotions since there name will come to the top more often.
I don't see my name on the list anymore...I'd still love to participate, but I have really bad tendinitis in my wrists so I have to keep my typing at a minimum right now...pls add me to the 'Artists On Hiatus', section. I hope to catch up some time soon. :-)
Priya, I accidentally deleted the master list a few days ago and had to find the last Promote An Artist thread to copy the list from. However many people who had been on the newest list were added after the older list. Now only some people who were on the newer list, are there. BIG mistake on my part!
There is NOT a quota of promotions expected!
We all get busy and can participate more one time and not at all another. That's totally ok!
I just ask that if we're participating we promote whenever possible.
Do you still want me to put your name in the Hiatus section?
Kami, I will promote as I can...in the past I'd gone through each artist's gallery and commented/voted/fav'd/promoted extensively, and am not currently able to do so. I don't want to be unfair and just get promoted without reciprocating, but need to stop typing now so I can let my wrists heal (backing away from the computer now, lol). However you want to handle this is fine with me. I'd still love to participate.
I liked, voted and promoted the other 2 artists this week (not myself) because I'm sure my lovely friends on this group will like, vote and promote me!
I just want to say that I appreciate so much all the work that Kami McKeon http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/kami-mckeon.html does for this group. I have liked, voted and promoted on Facebook Kami and I think all those that haven't should do so. It's a lot of work administering this group and I for one am so grateful that you do it Kami. God bless you!
In order to remain on that list, please do what you can to promote the other members who are in the top 3 each week.
There is NOT a quota but I ask that each of us do what we are able.
We might be able to promote a lot one week and not at all the next, that is fine as long as we do what we can.
thank you for the promotions! It's perfectly fine if you can't do it every week! I know you catch up when you get a chance.
That's all I ask is that we each do what we can.
I'll get your name bumped up and alphabetized!
I have been "on hiatus" most of the summer and this early autumn. Will probably remain "out of pocket" for a bit longer so it's only fair to remove me from this thread for now.
Thank you so much for all you do!
If you want to participate you post your name on the bottom of that discussion thread and I'll add it to the active participants thread. When your name gets to the top, you will be promoted for one week by other group members!
I'm going to go ahead and add your name to the active participants, if you want me to remove it, let me know.
OK I am not feeling veryx clever right now. Too many recent early starts. I am on Facebook. So promote the artsits on the lists, could you pls met me know what I should do? Should I like their page, or is there something more?

You can promote the top 1 or all of the top 3, whatever works for you.
You can promote their work by commenting on their images, liking, Google+d, voting, sharing their links etc...
Thank you for sharing their links on your page!
Kami, thanks and I understood that. By "work" I meant to communicate I had accomplished the promotion of the top three, not meaning work as posting any pics of my own. Thats why I did not post any links to my pics. Sorry about not communicating well. Appreciate all you do and wonder where you get the time and eneregy. This is one very active group and I'm enjoying it.
We have a new top 3! If you are participating in this thread, please promote them by commenting on their images, voting, tweeting, g+, sharing and any other ways of promoting!
Also, please visit the thread devoted to this week's top 3 and post your promotions there!
Sorry, neglected to post images from Dawn, Debbi, and Dino! Promoted these 3 artists on our Facebook fan page and voted, commented, promoted, etc. numerous images in their profile. A very enjoyable time spent in these 3 profiles!
Many of Jayne Wilson's works give an aura of simple times, days gone by. But one in particular, In the Heartland, by Jayne Wilson, really caught my eye. Its colors, subject, composition, all together are quite impressive.
I was disappointed with the amount of promotions last week's top 3 received.
I don't believe they were promoted near as much as other week's top 3 have been.
I realize we're all busy but the point of this thread is to participate ONLY if you CAN devote some time to promoting others.
If you're too busy for promoting, just post on here or email me and I'll move your name to the "Artists On Hiatus", list.
If you get to a point that you can devote more time to promoting others, post or email again and I'll move your name back to the
"Active Participants" list.
I'm going to put this thread on hiatus for now. I realize trying to stay active in all the group's we're in can be SO time consuming.
I'll try to keep the thread "active" by bumping it to the top, every now and then.
If I get enough feedback via email that members would like to continue this thread, we'll give it another shot.
Sorry for being selfish, but I'm so close to the top, I really want to continue. I've made sure to promote the artists each week, anticipating my own turn. But this group has started several other discussions without finishing this one. Why not finish the list of participating artists before going on hiatus, then pick up the other discussions and continue them?
The reason I want to put this thread on hiatus is because there's been very little participation. The last 3 artists of the week did not get much promotion at all. I would rather wait until there will be more participation so whoever is at the top will get a lot of promotions.
The Promote An Artist thread is an ongoing thread. I started the original thread last year I believe and this one in June 2012.
Some of the other threads I've started are short term threads, that's why they come and go.
It takes a lot of time on my part to maintain this thread and the corresponding thread for each weeks top 3. If there is enough interest in participating, I'd be glad to keep it going. Honestly I believe members are getting more promotions and exposure on some of the other threads.
I just don't want to waste anyone's time and effort (mine included) on a fruitless pursuit.
I understand where you're coming from too. It's a bummer putting in the time and effort promoting others and then not having that reciprocated.
I have been catching up.....not always been new a puter recently and my one at home is a nightmare. Been commenting, liking and voting the pics I like by the artists on the lists - you know who you are....
