This particular post is not the one that made Explore, but rather a repost of this a year and a half later. The only difference was I added my signature. The photo remained in Explore for a couple of months, and I began to think something was wrong (way before I understood just how unpredictable Explore can be). I started looking at threads, and I read to get a picture out of Explore you can make it private, or delete it. Why I didn't just make it private I don't know, but I deleted it. And all the views and comments with it. Dumb thing to do, but I thought the picture being "stuck" in Explore was keeping my newer posts from getting in. Wrong. Hey, live and learn.

What I didn't understand back then is that there remains an Explore FOR THAT DAY, and your photo can go in and it can go out. It can even go back in again, a couple days later. It can go in at #300 something, and be out three hours later, never to return. Or it can remain there for years...
