    attract your attention

    Do I express me in English correctly this way?

    I'm wondering all along, when did it attract your attention for the first time?

    Try I've been wondering when it first attracted your attention. This assumes that you added all along​ to convey a sense of an ongoing activity.
    I am not a teacher.

    It is important to get some mental flexibility.
    Hence a few alternative sentences.
    So, please have also a look at these sentences.
