I am just adding this so the WP folks can see there is another slow blog. Any thoughts welcome.
I disabled all my plugins and went back to the default theme. I have since taken out the bar (a recommendation by several) and disabled avatars. No help. This started as soon as the upgrade to 3.1. My host tried to roll back to the previous version and that actually broke my blog completely. Luckily I had a backup.
I am working with a completely fresh install of 3.1
I would appreciate any advice on speeding up my blog. It is frequently timing out as well.
My blog is http://www.jlellis.net/blog
