Christmas and New Year cards with images and video

With a bit of clever jiggery-pokery (technical term) you can use a Q-Action mini-web to set up a multi-media Christmas or New Year message web site at no extra cost. Send the link by email to your family and friends or as a QR code in a Christmas card.

You'll need an account with a free image or video service like Flickr, Vimeo, or YouTube; the URL of your content, and of course some sticky-backed plastic (but only if you're a veteran Blue Peter viewer).

The mini-web site lets you insert your image or video URL as a site sub-page. Your home page becomes a navigation page for several sub-pages of rich media content - a 'Blank' card containing free text updating people on your year so far, plus some images of events and people in your life. As you can have as many Q-Action mini web sites as you want, you can create a site for each recipient or one for everyone, and you can set up and manage them all through your mobile. Unlike social networks, the pages are more personal and restricted to those you send the link or the QR tag to.

If you make one and are so proud of it that you want a wider audience, let me know the URL.

Happy Christmas and hope the new year brings you joy.
