Is it my imagination or is this site getting very slow?
I have run some tests and depending on which ones I use, it's either quite fast or very slow, and seeing as normally this site isn't read by computers I thought I would ask my real readers.
There are a few things I could do to speed things up a bit, such as writing my ramblings without using text, as a blank page must be faster than one with a load of printing on it? Maybe I should forsake Wordress altogether and just write on one page which is rewritten each time? On second thoughts, that last idea would mean no one could comment and the comments are usually the only sensible bit.
One way I could speed up the old girl a bit would be to remove some of the crap that's running in the background. Does anyone ever use those "social buttons" on the posts – those Farcebook/Twitter/whatever buttons? They are nice and colourful but if no one uses 'em they could be dumped.
There's a thing in there called SEO which bothers me. I have heard all these nerds saying that SEO is vital and all that shit, but my readers are more important than geeky stuff, so that can go. Time to trim to the bone.
So what can I get rid of, or even what can I add?
So is it going slower, or is it just that I'm getting older and more impatient?
