Complaints Of Blog Slowness

Not being one to turn my back on monetary subscribers, I have heard your complaints about the slowness of the "The Blog." Your pain is my pain. But in a word, I'm confused. First, the darn thing is hosted by Google by its blogger/blogspot "get yourself a free blog" software, so I don't have any control over its speed. That being said, I've never seen a problem. I access it at work via Embarq DSL, from home by AT&T DSL,and through the courthouse by I don't know what. I've never had a problem with speed. (Internet or crank.) But I certainly believe you folks that complain. Do you guys have the same problem with that Google hosted Incidental Remarkings drivel? (Uh, I joke) That being said, I'll post the silly poll on the side to get a feel for the problem. In the meantime, I've limited the number of posts that can appear on the front page and I'll try to limit the embedded video (which surely slows it down.) And I'll check out (and am open to) other options. Good times. Edit: And for you techies out there, my wisecounty.com host just moved to a different platform that allows Wordpress hosting. I think I know what that means, but have never experimented with Wordpress.
