Book Review: News To Me by Laurie Hertzel

Today on my blog, I review a newly released book by Laurie Hertzel.  I met Laurie a number of years ago and I have been following her blog and her adventures writing this book.  It has been a real treat.  

Here is the link  Book Review: News To Me by Laurie Hertzel

Area Voices new software will not allow me to load photos, until that situation is rectified I will be giving you links.  Change is often not such a great thing, I know that many of the Area Voices bloggers are in the same boat..struggling..:(

    Hi @farside @stormchaser

    The maximum allowable size for any type of media upload is 2MB. This is a setting we have made, as WordPress allows us to adjust it as necessary to meet our needs. For us, 2MB is the best size as it allows everyone to upload web-quality/sized photos, and prevents someone from filling their 500MB of FREE storage too quickly.

      Also, we believe 2MB is enough for anybody at this time, considering 2MB is enough to hold, for example, a 2340×2381 JPG with 300 ppi and an RGB colorspace such as this: http://areavoices.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Neil_Armstrong.jpg .

      Certainly, most images coming from a high-quality digital camera will need to be resized prior to being uploaded to the web: this is common across the internet to accommodate the limited space on web servers. If this were a paid service, certainly the cap would be lifted, but as it is free, there are certain limitations that must be placed to prevent abuse. This is one of those limitations.
