Both my site and my WP Dashboard are super slow to load. I also am having problems uploading single images to my blog posts. I often have to switch to the media upload method.
I did run Y SLOW on my site – Here are the results:
Grade F on Make fewer HTTP requests
This page has 9 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
This page has 17 external background images. Try combining them with CSS sprites.
Decreasing the number of components on a page reduces the number of HTTP requests required to render the page, resulting in faster page loads. Some ways to reduce the number of components include: combine files, combine multiple scripts into one script, combine multiple CSS files into one style sheet, and use CSS Sprites and image maps.
