Flash Animated eCards

Welcome Flash eCard fans.

This blog is to keep followers up to date with any new eCards that I create following my deal with 123greetings.com.

As you may know, I have been creating Flash animated eCards for some time, both for clients and for my own website.  My own eCards were getting occasional visitors and sends, but I didn't feel that they were really being seen by the public.  So, I decided to upload them to 123greetings.com.

To my surprise and joy, before long, my eCards were being viewed in their millions and sent in their hundreds of thousands.  My "Baggins' Birthday Blues" eCard alone has been viewed 1,368,233 times (as of today) and sent 462,117 times.  You can see it at http://www.123greetings.com/birthday/happy_birthday/baggins_birthday_blues.html.

This is great news as the Adobe Flash software (the wonderful package that I use for creating my eCards) has had a hard time of late following Apple's decision not to support it on their mobile devices.

A few weeks back, the nice people at 123greetings asked me to sign a deal with them to start producing more cards.  How could I refuse?

I've already set to work creating some new offerings.  Here's a card created for Halloween (October 31st)  http://www.123greetings.com/events/halloween/wishes/halloween_friends_song.html and another for the Jewish festival of light, "Hanukkah" (November 27th)http://www.123greetings.com/events/hanukkah/happy/happy_hanukkah_by_wicky_the_candles.html.  It was great fun making this card as I'm a big fan of the early 60's vocal groups like The 4 Seasons and Randy & the Rainbows.  Quite a challenge reaching the high notes, but I'm really pleased with the result.

Next up will be a Baggins Christmas Blues eCard.  I'm recording soundtrack right now.

I'll be right back once it's ready.

Of course, you can view all of my cards so far at http://www.123greetings.com/profile/daftoons/

Thanks for reading.
