My site that is hosted here has gotten REALLY slow. Am I alone?

Last Update: December 20, 2013

It started two days ago. I do lots of my work in wee hours of the morning (midnight to 7 am Eastern time USA) to try to avoid peak traffic times. It got so bad that I could not even get the "edit page" to open a page on my pc. The site was also very slow loading on my tablet and my iphone. I finally installed W3 Cache, but it still is slow.

I also do not know when maintenance periods occur. Does anybody"

I'd first recommend running P3 http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/p3-profiler/ to check whether there are any resource hogs, such as the theme or plugins, etc. I'd also be exceptionally wary of any of the "cache" plugins, I've seen a lot of issues in regard to indexing if they are not set up "perfectly".

I have an ecommerce site elsewhere that they suspended last night. They told me I had to have a caching plugin to keep it running. I also had a subdomain that they quaranteed, because I do not use it. Once they installed the caching program, it worked fine. I used the same one here and it seems to be faster now. I made sure the settings were all the same. . I will check the plugin p3 to see if there is anything else. I know I have a problem with Google Webmaster tools not working because it webmaster cannot verify the site.

OK, but do keep an eye on your indexing, ranking and SEO, I've seen several "catastrophes" with cache plugins such as WP Super and WP Total, etc. R.

I would maybe open a support ticket? I do not have enough experience to guess at what could be on your site that might be slowing it down. My website loads almost immediately and I haven't had any problems that I can think of that arent directly related to my own internet. But I just tried to open your site and I gave up after two minutes of it trying to load. I hope you get it figured out.

I did a speed test to see what speed I am getting and the download is 16.5 mbps.

bloveds, I just visited your site, no problem with it fast load and I am in Brooklyn New York. The only Issue I have with the site is why do you have your opt -in form as a pop up right smack dab in the middle of your blog as soon as it opens, my suggestion to you would be to get rid of that pop up since you already have your opt-in already in your side bar which is sufficient, the pop up opt-in form that is right in the middle of your blog really takes away from your blog because it blocks what you have written and some reader may get annoyed and just leave your site which I would really not want to happen to you, because the site is really designed well, this is just my opinion and I wish you only the best of luck with your site.
