Was hoping someone may be able to take a quick look at my site and let me know what your load times.

I have a very image heavy blog and I am trying to speed it up.

Any input or recommendations welcomed!

Thanks friends!

Hi again!

Also had another thought....I've been on Atahualpa for quite some time now. It really gave me my base so to speak as to learning anything about Wordpress, CSS, HTML etc etc.

I am wondering what everyone's thoughts are as far as speed and using Atahualpa or eventually moving to a completely hand coded theme or a Theme Frame generated theme?

Also looking at the W3 Super Cache plugin again....I tried it several years ago and bailed on it when I got confused.

I anticipate our traffic to continue doubling monthly as it has been and I want to get my load times faster to help keep people around.

One thing I see on your site that could make a big difference is the file size of you images. For instance there is an image on the front page that is about 111 Kb. I just optimized it for the web and it comes in at a little over 20 Kb. See attached.

Add up all those larger (file size) than needed images and you increase load time.
