It's so hard to say goodbye...
Hey there #Blackout family…
Due to the many incarnations of #BlackoutDay and our inability to be ahead of the curve & talk with people who co-opted our hashtag, we decided that it was best to retire our involvement in #BlackoutDay. We know that some of you are loyal fans and we love each one of you for partaking in our annual tradition, no matter the platform. However, the Internet is fickle and this site will turn into an “archive” site for the original #BlackOutDays.
There will be no contact information as far as this site is concerned. Any emails about this site/hashtag will not be returned. For more details, please check out this article on Buzzzfeed.
While we’re on Twitter / Facebook / Instagram / Tumblr, we are not currently active on these platforms. They will be kept online for as long as possible.
If you would like to know what this project/hashtag/call-to-action is about, here’s a dated tumblr post about this:
Everything holds up, except for the Call-To-Action as it is no longer quarterly. As of March 6, 2019, this is an annual call-to-action as our last quarterly celebration was in 2018. The last two Blackout Days fell on March 6th, 2019 and 2020. We called a #BlackoutDay on May 31, 2020 in an attempt to revive the CTA.
If you would like to contact the two co-founders about anything non-BlackoutDay related or you just want to follow them, you can reach them on twitter, @marsincharge or @nukirk.
Thank you for supporting this hashtag throughout 2015-2020. It’s been an honor.
