Slow loading times

Gay Orbit has been having the same problems the Flea has experienced with site loading times. The culprits: Blogads, Sitemeter and Bl*gr*lling. I would have lifted the Blogads script entirely if I did not have a (single) live ad running. And as of last week I am done with Bl*gr*lling. Sitemeter provides a useful, if undercounting, guestimate which has been a guide for potential Blog-advertisers. But if I drop the one there will be no need for the other. When some significant portion of my Flea-related email now relates to slow loading times I can only guestimate the number of Flea-readers are giving the blog a miss.

I've always hand-coded my blogroll. Bl*gr*lling is for sissies. ;)

But then I suppose that, in this particular aspect, we're all sissies compared to Colby Cosh.

I was thinking of subdividing the blogroll a la Cosh... the trick is deciding what categories to use. I am thinking of separating out the "neo-whigs" as a place to start.
