----------
Dear Blingee Fans,

After more than 130 million Blingees made, the time has come for Blingee to ride off into the sunset. It's been an amazing 9 years, from the simple idea of making it easier to create animated images, to the explosion of creativity we have seen, and the wonderful and lively community that grew around it. Thank you for your passionate support over the years.

Before we close the site down, we wanted to give you the opportunity to save your Blingees to your computer. Here's how:

1. From your account Dasboard, select 'My Blingees' from the navigation column on the right side
2. Choose the "< >" icon on the Share line for the Blingee you wish to download
3. Click on 'Get Code or Download' for the size you want
4. Click the "Download this Blingee" button on the right side of the page
5. Repeat for the Blingees and sizes you wish to keep


The site will be turned off on August 25th, so please grab your Blingees before then.

Thanks again for being one of the best communities on the internet! We wish you all the very best!

[Update 1]

Thank you for the kind words in your reactions. Some answers to your questions:

- Why is the site closing?

It is not for lack of trying to save it, but several events on the business and technical sides of Blingee have led us to the point where it is no longer sustainable for us to run the site. The site is expensive and complex to maintain, we have kept it alive as long as we could.

- Why not sell it for someone else to run? Can it be saved?

There are significant challenges to overcome, we have not been able to find someone able and willing to take it on.

- "Am I the only one crying"?

You are not, we have given a lot of blood, sweat, and tears for Blingee. But there have been a lot of good times too, so we are trying to focus on how it has brightened our lives.

Why are you closing down the site? Can't you sell it or give it to someone else to run? We need more time to save our blingees! Can you give us 1 month please! Some of us have hundreds of blingees we need to download. Thank You! I loved being apart of the blingee community for 7 years! ☻

This broke my heart. I love Blingee, Ive been a member for 6 years and made thousands of blingees. My first few years here I literally spent my entire life and days here talking to all the amazing friends I made around the world. The good days ended awhile ago but I still came here to reminisce everything and its hard to believe a big part of my life over... please don't close down the website... :(

Que c'est triste, toutes cette créativité qui s'envole, n'y aurait-il pas un autre site ou on pourrait faire des images comme sur blingee?
