First of all, this is not so much a “Sorry for the lack of updates,” but it most definitely is a, “Sorry this site is so painfully slow!”
I am having a difficult time with the site’s back-end. I have been trying to figure out what is causing these issues. From work and at home, this site can take more than a minute to load! This is unacceptable. I want to correct this asap.
I have gone back and forth via email with my hosting company. Fortunately, it is not the hosting company. I have narrowed it down to a few plug-ins in wordpress after upgrading. Unfortunately, I rely on these plug-ins to facilitate the layout present at this site.
Regardless, this will be addressed. A change needs to be made.
