So today I found an email from ViewBug with some good news:

You are one of the I Love My Food Photo Contest Finalists!
Well, just a finalist, you may say, but when you are competing against thousands (literally) of other entries, many of them from amazing photographers, being "just a finalist" is a great feat, believe me! I don't have any expectations of winning the contest. It's an almost impossible task! So I'm happy as things are, "just" being a finalist.
I'm starting to check the web, both under my name and under EG-Keith Photography, looking for any place where I can find my pictures. This first search won't probably find any misuse since the images that I'll find will be credited to me. Next search will be by image (which will take a much longer time) to try to find any possible misuse of my photos.
Today I found the following site -- aroundguides.com, which has a session on places to stay around Black Canyon City, Arizona. My husband and I stayed at the Black Canyon RV Resort for ten days last year, in October, and I uploaded several images as a Google Guide. Some of these images, duly credited to me, are being used also on the mentioned site.
Yep. Still. It turns out that I love building my site as much as I love photography! On the other hand, I'm not quite crazy when it turns to writing, and there is a main reason for this: English is not my first language. Anyway, little by little we'll get there, I promise!
