Once You Publish, Google Has it Forever!

Citheronia Regalis (regal moth)ActiveRain, I want to thank you for that. I received a comment from a post I did back in 2008 that was found and reviewed today. I saved a worms life. I helped to save a life today! Okay, a moth. I saved a life and I am tickled about it! I have to tell you this story!

I wrote an ActiveRain post back in 2008 about a wonderful Huge Worm that crossed my porch. I didn't know what he was so I hustled over to google and checked him out. As it was, he was going to metamophisize into a beautiful huge moth and I was so glad I photographed him.

Here is the link to the original post.

HUGE GREEN WORM. Citheronia Regalis (regal moth). Beauty surrounds...Huntsville, Texas.

Now, today I had a new comment on my post from JEFF. Jeff is a very nice person that wittnessed this very catapillar as I did. You just cannot help but be intrigued by his beauty and difference when you see him and automatically he causes you to want to take care of him. Citheronia Regalis (regal moth)3
Thank You Jeff...You are awesome!
After my research I learned that he is a Citheronia Regalis (regal moth). I received a wonderful comment today from a person named Jeff and I want to share it with you since it is public.

Remember that whatever you publish will be there for years to come.

Make it count!

Amazing!  2008?!  I need to search for mine from 2009.  Just goes to show it doesn't matter what you write about and it definitely doesn't have to be about real estate.  Good for you!

Now that's a worm!  Wait a big is this thing that Jeff was able to see it while he was driving down the road?

As for things remaining on the Internet, I just had a conversation with a group of people about Internet pages that have been "cached".  No one in the group was aware of what a cached page was.  They were all surprised to hear that the changed or deleted pages may still remain.

Jan, it pays to look back. Although, even if you don't find it someone else will!

Linda, yes, I'm aware of the cache.

The worm I found was 6 INCHES LONG! Hard to miss him~

That is AMAZING Deb getting a comment from that far back and what a pretty moth the worm turned out to be too.

Such a cool story. Lovely creature in both forms. Nature is such a after day...and look a the connection made years later. :) How wonderful Deb.

That's great advice.  Also, I like to be careful with I put out there because it also stays out there--the good and the bad!

That's great Deb!  Usually when I get a comment from a ways back, it's spam!  Nice to get a nice comment. Enjoy the holiday weekend!

One of the things that I keep hearing is that your posts get MORE traffic down the road.  That is an intriguing thought for me, and I am so GLAD that Jeff contacted you years later.  Blessings, my friend

Deb - you never know how and when you will reach someone with an Active Rain post. I'm sure the moth is very grateful - lol! Good stuff!

Hi Deb,

cool story, part of me thinks that there are a few metaphors in this story......

some clients "incubate" a bit slower

some times our perceptions........

Gary, it is amazing what comes of what we have written.

Debb, it's lovely isn't it? I admit that at first I was afraid of it but not too afraid to scoop it up! lol

Jennifer, thank you!

Susan, it's so good to see you here! You have a great weekend too my friend.

Mimi, I have noticed that. Looking through the stats it's amazing at the number of visits on many of them. Cool huh?

Kristine, it's really fun to know that someone found the post and it saved a worms life! Woohoo!

Peter and Linda, you're good at that! You must know I planned on someone finding that~rofl

Hi Deb-He is a cute little guy but the moth is unique. It is wonderful when someone finds us from something we wrote long ago. Hope you are doing well and that you have a relaxing weekend.

Hi Deb - I think it's pretty cool that this stuff will always be out there. If I could read what people in the 15th century were saying and thinking, I'd be fascinated by it, so I wonder what those who read the AR archives 500 years from now will make of what we post. Your caterpiller could be an important data point for some future biologist!

Great story - and awesome pic!  I have to say I've been away from Activerain for a few months (naughty me) but I enjoyed the story AND comments - Creative people at AR!

Hi Deb, I learned this some time ago. That is one cool worm! Love the color.
