Speeding Up The Blog! It’s Been Tweaking Time Again!

A lot of you who follow me around the net will have seen the Guest Post I wrote on CommentLuv titled “Keep An Eye On Those WordPress Plugins“, shortly after this I came back to the blog and started work tweaking it to help improve its performance.

Those of you that do read the blog a lot will have noticed some changes to some areas on the blog.

For starters, I’ve removed the toolbar, although this was CPU hungry it did make the blog a fraction slower, so now I have opted for the social buttons to continue in the “author bio” at the bottom of a post.

Also WP125 has been removed, as this can all be done without a plugin, why have a plugin when you can do it yourself just as easily ;)

Along with several other plugins that were of no use any more or were just used to make the blog look better, speed and reliability wins with regards to the blog.

So I’m hoping that this slight changes will speed the blog up and make it more enjoyable for people to stop by and comment on not only my blog posts, but also those of the superb Guest Bloggers that have opted to post here on Blazing Minds.

Anyone, thanks to everyone for stopping by, commenting and sharing the blog posts, it’s much appreciated, in the meantime, is there a social network button that is missing that you think should be included? Please let me know ;)
