I'm tickled PINK!

Did you happen to notice the cool change around here? I won a contest that FireMom ran on her blog Stop, Drop and Blog. FM was up late last night redesigning my blog as well as her own.

We are PINK for October!

Web sites will Go Pink during the month of October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research. But to be clear, raising money isn’t the primary purpose of this web event. The hope is that you turn your site pink (in whatever way works for your site), educate yourself about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that knowledge and tell someone else what you’ve learned.

I have not been personally touched by breast cancer, in that no one in my family or immediate circle of IRL friends has ever been diagnosed. But breast cancer doesn't just effect family or immediate friends. It has a ripple effect, working it's way out from the woman with the diagnosis and touching everyone around her. I do have several on-line friends who are at the center of the ripple. So it is for them and every other person touched by this disease that I have gone PINK for October.

Share your story, either here in the comments or link back to your own site. How has the ripple of breast cancer affected you?
