Now I Know Why I Don’t Have Visitors

My site is slow.

The mobile menu isn’t working correctly.

It took me over 15 seconds for a story to come up in the Kindle browser.  If I stop it from loading, then hit the story link again, it comes right up.

This tells me that the problem is in the server, not my design.  My design is very low-end with header images that rarely top 100kb.  The theme I’m using didn’t register any problems when I troubleshooted through several sources.  So again.  The server.

I’m currently on Shared Hosting that costs me $12/month.  If I want Dedicated Hosting that is far more reliable and fast loading, I’ll have to pay $20/month.  It’s a bloody racket.
