Why I’m Shutting Down The Rebelution


The Rebelution is shutting down.

We’ve made some great memories together, but even thousands of teenagers on a blog can’t compete against a behemoth corporate empire like Reese’s Puffs and their parent-company General Mills.

Now that they’ve started challenging teens to do hard things like “meet someone with your own name” and “pull off the perfect practical joke,” there isn’t much reason for The Rebelution to continue.

Reese’s Puffs has the resources and the marketing team to call this generation to a better future — we don’t.

So, while The Rebelution is over, The Reese-olution has just begun. Reese’s Puffs has provided tools Alex and I never could have — like the handy checklist below.

We believe that it is a complete road-map to God-glorifying teen years and a bright future. We’d encourage you to study it and allow it to reese-olutionize your life.


This list might sound intimidating, but just remember that you have eighteen years to complete it!

Even if you don’t start until you’re thirteen, you’re only talking about three things each year.

That leaves you plenty of time to eat lots of Reese’s Puffs — the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter flavor.
