Pink For October

So, anyone who visits my site often will have noticed a bit of a change to the clothes of Electric Weekend. It’s not because I have gotten bored of my other theme, it’s because I am in support of an initiative that started at the beginning of October. Now, yes, I know I am a bit late to the party, but there are reason for that. Mainly, I don’t have the time to learn how to code and make the nice stylish designs I wish I could, so I have to rely on other people and then hack away at their code when I do get time.

Anyway, more on this initiative. It’s part of a Breast Cancer awareness campaign called Pink For October. The idea? Everyone who wants to help raise awareness of the cancer participates by making their website Pink for the month of October. So, well, here you go. Here I am wearing pink for october.

The site is still getting tweaked here and there as I find links etc that need fixing, so if you spot some then please drop a comment. As for where this sites look will go after October is another question. I really do like the design of this theme so the chances are you will find some form of mod or tweak. I am also thining about where this blog is going to go. I have decided that my portfolio should be seperate from my blog, it will present a more professional me if my work isn’t there alongside my randomness of my blog. What this entails is another question, probably the purchase of philbowell.com although this does depend on financial situations, but I believe it will be a good idea to purchase and present as my professional image once I graduate from University. But for now, this blog is still here and I will try to post at a more frequent rate.

Anyway, please do enjoy the new boots, and keep tuned for some kind of adaption of the theme once October ends.

Edit: Forgot to say, this theme is from Derek Punsalan at 5thirtyone.com and can be found here.

  1. For an interesting twist on the topic of the “pinking” of breast cancer awareness, please see the link on my website, http://www.honestmedicine.typepad.com, to the article “Welcome to Cancerland: A Mammogram Leads to a Cult of Pink Kitsch” by Barbara Ehrenreich. (You can access the article by going to the left side of my site, under “articles of importance.”)

    This article will give you a different perspective on the topic! It is a classic.
