Hello October!

Okay so I’m seven days late but it’s okay! I actually did post a blog on the first, which does look like it disappeared. If you commented me and it seems that I didn’t comment you back, I apologize x 1000. I’m having host issues. I am actually hosted by two companies and guess which one just went down? The new one, exactly the same day the old one came back. I find it kind of funny but as long as the site is here. It’s kind of like managing two sites which I will be doing soon but that’s a secret.

I changed the theme for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It features Nana from the manga NANA, If you knew me when I first started this site, I lost my cousin in 2006 to lymphoma a week after her 13th birthday. She was one of the sweetest people I ever had in my life and there’s not a day I don’t miss her. I think it’s important for people to be aware that cancer can happen to anyone and thousands of people are affected. Young or old, it doesn’t matter if it’s in your family or not, it just means a lot to people when you help out. Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll have a theme and a few wallpapers available  for download for others to go Pink. If you want to go ahead and go Pink now, here’s a list of 13 WordPress themes and don’t foget to sign up here. For even more information, you can visit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

I’m a huge sucker for autumn. I love it when it’s cold. There are new seasons on all of my favorite TV shows, the holidays, new fashion choices, personal holidays (like my 3 year anniversary with David was yesterday and my site is turning 2 tomorrow), and just so many things going on all at once. It’s like spring but only colder.  So in my spirit of giving and for the fact that I’m not done working on my gifts for my visitors I’ve compiled a list of 10 nice wallpapers for autumn.

  1. I love this layout! I went Pink For October myself. I felt obligated to do so because my mother passed from breast cancer.

    I’m also a sucker for Autumn. I’m not too fond of hot or cold weather but Spring and Autumn always seems to be just the right temperature.

  2. Oh I like this theme, it’s so cute. :] :]

    I love autumn too, I rather be cold and look cue. :] :] there’s more cuter items when it’s cold. :]

  3. Thank you for going pink in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 😀

  4. Hey,
    I know rasisum started way before the KKK, in our class, we decided that raisisum probably started with slavery?
    Thank you for changing your layout to support breast cancer. I’ve lost 2 grandparents to cancer and my great aunt survived it. Also, my best friends mum (who I am very close to) recently came out of chemo, so yeah, cancer support means a lot to me haha.
    I hope you’re good 🙂

    Rachels last blog post..Racism?

    • It’s no problem. Wikipedia has a lovely article on racism, some documentation has it spawning back towards the 14th century near the beginning of the enslaving of the African people. It probably began way before the “found” documentation.

  5. :blush: :blush: :blush:


    But it’s spring here.. :err:

    It’s great you’re doing this breast cancer awareness thing, I don’t think I’m so uh..capable yet to sign up for such things. :ugh:

    I haven’t been to comment on your site because well, I didn’t think we were affiliates anymore :blank: I’ve been stalking and lurking this site (yeah xD I tend to do that) but I haven’t been commenting sorry xD

  6. I love the theme. Came out great. =)

    It sounds like you’ve been just as frustrated as I have been with these hosting conflicts. Never ends!

  7. I :love: this layout. 13 years is so long to lose a life and it’s surprising that life was lost to breast cancer. That sucks. Here’s hoping that they find a cure soon.

    I’m putting up a layout for Breast Awareness Month (thanks to you) because of breast cancer && the fact that it does run in my family. I can get it; my aunt had it and fought & won which is amazing but it’s the reason that I’m aware of it.

    Mihoriels last blog post..Well…

  8. I love your layout! I went pink for October as well :biggrin:

    I love autumn and spring more than any other season because the weather is just so much more comfortable not to mention everything is absolutely gorgeous around those times.

    Shannons last blog post..The Simple Things.

  9. I think that what you and Shannon do is a great thing. People should be informed it’s something serious and not a rare “sickness” that gets old women.

    The wallpapers you provide are gorgeous! I will be surely using them once I decide to change my desktop. 🙂 Thanks.

    I lost my grandmother in 2001 due to cancer. 🙁 Her’s actually went away but then it came back, she had ovarian cancer. Sorry about your cousin, she was really young.
