I have been having some problems with wordpress over the past few days. Slow to load, taking ages to post comments on other blogs, and long delays to load the Reader. Is it just me, or is anyone else experiencing this? I have gone through the usual housekeeping; defrag, delete old files, full system scan, clean-up, and restart. Still lumbering. The Internet connection is sound, and running at a decent speed, so I am at something of a loss to get to the root of the problem. Perhaps it is one of the occasional glitches that wordpress seems to experience, as they update their site, or introduce new tweaks. Time will tell.
After enjoying my best week ever on the blog for views and readers, during the first week of November, it has now settled down, and is back to ‘normal’. The heady days of high stats columns, and unheard of figures are behind me for now, and I am back down to earth with a bump. It was nice while it lasted, like a short holiday, or an unexpected visit. Time to get back to reality, and to continue with the posts, and the everyday life of an average blogger. December is looming, and with it, the coming winter. Darker days, longer evenings, an ideal time for putting in the hours at the keyboard.
