It seems to me I am taking longer and longer in between posts on my blog, so although I rarely make New Years Resolutions, maybe I need one regarding my blogging.
Also I have changed the theme to a simpler design and added a plug-in that should be better at caching the pages on both my blogs.
The Akismet logo showing how many spam comments had been blocked has also been disabled as a friend noticed this was slowing the loading of the site as well. Akismet itself is still enabled though.
I am in the middle of a few posts, and hopefully within a week or so should have some more stuff posted here.
