My last submissions to literary magazines have been out there for some time now. I am been very surprised that I haven't heard anything. I've given up the practice of following-up with literary magazines to check the status after six months. My experience has been they've either lost your submission or never bothered to let you know it was rejected. I don't see the point of sending a follow-up email or wasting the postage.

Last year three poems were accepted. This year nothing, and 2005 is almost over. I'll keep writing anyway, but it sure is nice to get a little external acknowledgement for your efforts.
