One of the coolest things about my new job here at KickApps is that I get to play with the KickApps widget studio. Check out the modeling widget I made for myself with the feed from my flickr modeling set.

When I add new pictures to my portfolio, the photo slideshow will update as well with my latest images in a pretty sweet looking widget. You can customize any part of the widget as well. Change the shape color, look and feel.

Make your own at http://www.kickapps.com and if you really want it, click the upper left hand corner to post the Leora Israel modeling widget on your blog, facebook, etc.

Bonnaroo and Kickapps

Most websites and large brands these days utilize applications on Facebook and Myspace to get their name out there. But while these tools are great, they don’t necessarily add to your site’s traffic.

Kickapps takes social networking up a notch. This innovative web application allows you to create your own online social network and keep the traffic on your site. When a visitor posts an entry in a forum they’re certain to return often to view responses to the post. Further responses will keep the conversation going, which keeps your site’s traffic flowing!

I’m going to New York in 8 days and need some new business cards.   Took a poll of my interweb bffs and the overwhelming answer was MOO!  Sorry @gdruckman and @agfhome you were outvoted.

So I spent the last hour and then some going through my thousands of Flickr pics looking for cow inspiration.  I chose 50…each of which will be seen on 2 shiny cards.  So excited!  Hope they arrive in time.

When they say 3-10 days is that from when you order or from when they ship?  Could be a problem but I didn’t want to spend $30 extra on the fast shipping.  Oh well!

Moo card people, if you read this PLEASE send me my pretty cards post haste.  I’m going to some kickass tech events in NYC and want to look cool with my Moo-e-ness!

DSC_0177Last night I decided I needed a break from my computer.  I decided to go offline for 24 hours.  Sadly since I’m writing this some would call this an epic fail on my part but the point of going offline wasn’t to alienate my beloved cyber world it was simply to do something different.  I managed to do that and have over 500 pictures to prove it.

I took my camera, ipod and blackberry and walked to the beach.  Along the way I took some random pictures of fences, signs and trees.  I’m not sure why but I think I’m obsessed with fences these days…

Anyway, once I got to the empty beach I saw this written in the sand:


I briefly pondered who the author was and what royalty had been on that very sand just moments before me.  I imagine a 30 something dad with his 3 year old daughter skipping, running, laughing on the beach.  Or maybe not.


Then I plopped myself down in the sand and started taking pictures of the waves.  The place was almost completely deserted except for the occasional bird and a few random people. 


Check out my flickr set of some of my favorite pictures from the beach here.

I’m not sure what I’ll do the rest of my time off but I think it might involve some baking/cooking, spending more time with the bunnies and the husband and maybe a movie.  Then later tonight I might head to the Red Door Shelter if Ariel has the energy to play with some homeless buns.  It’s been way too long since I’ve helped out there.  I wonder if Delilah is still around.
