October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

As you can see by our new updated blog, it's time to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Yay!! Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause that I love to support, for the following reasons: 1) I have breasts. 2)I LOVE the color pink. 3) I have a small breast lump (fibroadenoma - benign and nothing to worry about).

Throughout the month of October, I've decided to post some interesting articles and facts about Breast Cancer to help educate us all, get us talking and raise money for research. There are so many ways to support this cause!

One very easy way is to have your website "
Go Pink for October." The following is from their website:

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.

The hope is that you turn your site pink (in whatever way works for your site), go out to that World Wide Web thing and educate yourself about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that newfound knowledge and tell someone else what you’ve learned.

We hope that you will:
1. Turn your web site/blog pink (however you like, it’s up to you).
2. Educate yourself about the multiple issues related to breast cancer.
3. Take that newfound knowledge and teach someone else what you know.

In 2006 (our first year) was a great start with the roughly 1500 sites that Went Pink. 2007 saw roughly 3000 sites Go Pink. We are looking to make an even bigger splash in 2008, but we’ll need your help to do it.

Blog about it, invite others to join, become involved, help increase awareness, learn something new, and teach others what you know.


So, let's all do our part, GO PINK and support Breast Cancer Awareness!!

I too am Pink for October... So vital, isn't it? I look forward to coming back and seeing your posts throughout this month. I hope you will check out my pink season. We have some great interviews and tributes, a Pink swap (which entrant deadlines is tonight) and over a dozen giveaways. Also, all of my ad revenue this month, is going to Breast Cancer Research.

Can I link you as another blog going pink?

Since you've already gone pink, perhaps you'd also like to also take part in our month-long contest?

There is also a "Share Your Story" segment where you can share a true story, or encourage your friend/family/neighbour/colleague to share theirs.

Head on to Pink for October website for more details! :D
