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.
