My blog seems to take forever to intially load. It appears that there isn't even any traffic to or from the website for the initial few seconds either. I've a few pictures and a flash video that I would imagine slow things down a tad but it takes ~6 seconds for the screen to show anything other than white when initially loading it. It's not the server since other pages I have (austenrodey.com) hosted on my account load almost instantly despite heavy bandwidth requirements.
Any thoughts as to what could be slowing things down so much? Thanks in advance.
