Election day is tomorrow, and everyone is giving their last minute opinion. So I thought I’d give mine, too. I believe in happiness and I believe in a UNITED country. It’s saddens me to see our country so divided, and it’s even more devastating when I read posts from my friends on my facebook dishing out such anger and rude comments about other people. See, what I don’t understand is why judge someone else based on their opinion or political view. Yes, we have the right to vote and chose whom ever we think is worthy of being our president, but why be rude or offensive about it. There is no need to call people names or say such wretched things. These words are being put out there for everyone to see, these cruel words are being read by everyone, why is that because you have a strong opinion about something and someone doesn’t agree with you, they are a horrible person for it. I teach my children to be nice to others, I teach them not to be rude to others, I teach them to share with others, I teach them how to always say please and thank you. The truth is that there will always be something that we don’t agree on, there will always be elections, there will always be things that some of us want and others don’t. What upsets me the most is when people say if you don’t vote this you’re this. Really, then how are we better than the other person?  We should all learn how to live together in a UNITED country not in a DIVIDED country or a country full of hate towards each other. So next time you say something vile on any social media site, please be mindful who is reading it on the other side. There are ways of stating your opinion, without being abhorrent. This is not about sides, this is about how to treat others the way we want to be treated. Stand up for what you believe in and voice your opinion, just be nice about it.  I believe in a life full of love and happiness, what about you?Comments 1

How to Increase WordPress’ File Upload Size

This all started when I was switching from belkiscruz.wordpress.com to my very own subdomain,blog.belkis-cruz.com. When I imported my old blog from WordPress.com, I noticed that not all the images imported because some of them were a bit larger than the limit size. Very frustrating because it went over the limit by .1 mb! So I set out on a mission to increase the limit. It took almost a whole night and part of my morning. Yikes! But, when I am determined to make something happen, I WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN. So after all the research I did, and got no where and than finally I got it to work. I wanted to help out and put all in one place to make it easier for you.  I have successfully increased the file size limit from 2MB to 10MB. (My preference, but you can change it to whatever you’d like.) Before I start, this is a post for those of us who have our own domain and hosing set up and have installed WordPress. Also this is for MAC Users, but I am sure this can also apply to Windows users as well.

1. Download TextWrangler from http://www.barebones.com/products/textwrangler/

2. The following text needs to be typed in TextWrangler:

memory_limit = 10M
upload_max_filesize = 10M
post_max_size = 10M
file_uploads = On

*Remember you can change the limits to whatever you’d like.I wouldn’t recommend going higher than 10, but it’s your choice.

3. When you are in TextWrangler go to:

  • File
  • Save As
  • Name the file php.ini
  • make sure it that Line Breaks is set to Unix (LF) and Encoding is set to Unicode (UTF-8)
  • Save it to your desktop or where ever is easiest for you to access.

4. You will than open up your WordPress Admin Directory

5. Drag the saved file PHP.INI and drop in the WORDPRESS ADMIN FOLDER

And it’s done.
Make sure the your hosting provider has also increased your limits, so that it can all work smoothly.
