    I made two WordPress websites (love working with WP!), both are kind of slow to load.

    Both are very visual with lots of quite high res. pictures, is that the problem? Or can there be other causes? Like database or something? Or hosting?

    E.g. one of them: http://www.tiskita.com

    It loaded up fairly quickly for me, less than 20 seconds for the load to completely finish. You've hit the usual suspects as to why a site might take a while to load, especially if you use a lot of high res images in your slider. But it's a beautiful site.

    @cherry_2000: Your page is way, way too heavy; and you're on GoDaddy, a known slow host. See
