  1. Love your site and check it several times a week...Got a question/problem though. It always takes me several attempts to open up you site/page. (Took 4 tries today). Is it me or your site cause there is so much here?
    I check out a large number of sites daily and yours is the hardest to get open up up.

  2. Rebecca, thanks so much for your kind words and the valuable feedback on the blog. For sure, our posts are image-intensive. We checked our settings, and it was set to load 5 posts on the main page; that's a lot. I just changed the settings to load only 2 posts, so I hope that it will load twice as fast now. People who want to see previous posts will need to click on the "older posts" link, search for a topic, or check the archive of past posts, which is at the bottom of the sidebar. See what you think, and thanks again.


We love reading each and every comment... thanks for visiting our blog!
