Flash animation on my site

I haven´t seen many of these so I thought I'd try my hand at one and put a little animation on my site. It didnt take long to do in After Effects and I think it looks rather cool \ cheesy, haven't decided yet..

It's on the left-hand side bar.

Don, to me it looks like an external banner ad that was placed on your site. Which IMO devalues the site as a whole because it resembles one of those free template sites which typically have ads crawling all over them. I don't know about anyone else, but I NEVER click on those ads and I almost always pre-judge the site based on seeing those ads. I think a nicely done static banner that fits with the theme of your site can be just as effective in grabbing attention.

Thanks Yeng, I hadn't thought of that.

It looks good to me, although the black background makes it look sort of detached from your site design (which is a bit sparse, "template-y").

I don't agree with Yang that an ad like that is a bad thing. The content clearly shows that it's for the site they're on now (yours). And people like to click on these things (more than they should, no doubt).
