Cynthia is WAS a shock..could not belive my eyes.

(Laughing ) Sandy......I have NO idea how it happens my friend....HA..if I wanted it to happen to advertise my Etsy ( not yet created ) shoppe...it would NEVER show up most likely.

Rebecca...I know I can GOOGLE the name of my blog and have it come up...but to just be looking for IMAGES off the web..and have it be there..was AMAZING to me.

Hi Rose,

Yes, since your blog is hosted on Blogspot, which is owned by Google, their "googlebot" crawls the internet regularly and picks up any words you use in your posts! This makes it easier for people who want to find your blog, but forgot to bookmark it! It also picks up words used by your friends' blogs if you feature them on your page (like you do!). I think Google gives preference to its Blogspot bloggers over bloggers who host theirs on other sites.

Very cool, huh? :)

Pam..thank you for this INFO..I sent this to the wrong person the other day....so very sorry.
I guess I did not realize that GOOGLE owned Blogspot too.

IT IS VERY COOL..how that works.

I wonder how many times our blogs are mentioned all over the net...it is a bit intimidating...when you think of it.

For me...it is hard to think of the scope of the WWW..it is SO HUGE......hard to get ones mind around it all really.
