So I thought I'd check in with you all
I temporarily set up a poll in the side bar to see if my blog has been driving anyone bonkers.
Is it easy to leave a comment?
Load pages? etc. etc.
I know I sometimes have video clips and animated gifs in my posts
AND I do have an animated slide show gif on the sidebar, but I haven't added any other such things as I know they are the most responsible for the loading and bouncing away from the comments and verification problems (like a yoyo on acid) that other sites have.
Thank you for letting me know.
I hope its not mine...You'd let me know if it was mine, right?ReplyDelete
Yours is perfect.
You know we're all going to worry now don't you? :-)ReplyDelete
I have no problem whatsoever with your blog :-)
Hi Madeleine .. all fine here .. and as I have nothing on mine but posts - should be ok! Some are horrendously slow .. too clever by half and therefore not terribly helpful! Keeping it simple is so much better .. cheers for now - HilaryReplyDelete
Not slow at all. No problems.ReplyDelete
Slow downloads drive me insane. I generally stop commenting on the blog and just read them on my reader.ReplyDelete
Yours took several seconds, but not bad. If I remember correctly, yours used to take longer to load. The more graphics you use, the longer it takes.
Loading up your blog on my pc is just fine! Take careReplyDelete
I know exactly what you're talking about - that drives me nuts too! But your blog loads quite quickly - I voted on your sidebar.ReplyDelete
No, the page loaded up just fine. The only sites my computer has a problem with are the ones that use video clips or gif.ReplyDelete
Worked fast for me!ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure my blogs drive readers bonkers - possible for other reasons, though! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comments and votes. I do use video clips and lots of pics, but the animated sidebar attachments are the things that affect the functioning of blogs and I only have one of those in the form of my blog awards slideshow gif. I guess I can take the poll away now as it all seems ok. Phew! :O)ReplyDelete
I can't say you're blog has given me any speed or performance problems. I can read and comment with no issues.ReplyDelete
Yours is very easy to comment on. Although I'd get rid of the word verification thing. It isn't needed with blogger's built-in spam filter.ReplyDelete
It's been working great for me!ReplyDelete
Nope, your blog is all good with no pesky jumping around or slow loading. It's easy to read and is a pleasure to visit.ReplyDelete
You do use word verifications on your comments, though and, while it's not a big issue for me, I know a lot of bloggers don't like that. The spam filters are exceptionally good these days so the verifications aren't that necessary.
It's as great as always!ReplyDelete
Ooh, a poll is a good idea. I've never had a problem loading yours. I'll have to have someone check mine!ReplyDelete
Your page loaded just fine for me. :)ReplyDelete
We're in the same Literary Fiction group of crusaders. :)
Thanks everyone. As far as word verification goes I have had some slip through the net so I put it back periodically to throw them off the scent, hopefully!ReplyDelete
