Improving the Performance of my Blog

Yesterday I checked the Google Analytics for my site and saw that the average page load time is approaching 8 seconds! that is way too much time (almost double what most people are willing to wait for a site to load, which is about 4 seconds). For all of you who have suffered, I’m really sorry.

My site is hosted in a very low-cost hosting service and uses WordPress, with a number of plugins, add-ins, and widgets. For starters, I’m removing all¬†unnecessary¬†items from my site (yes, EVERYTHING) to see how things improve. If you are missing something, please do tell me by leaving a comment. And if you have any ideas that can help make my site faster, do tell me also.
