    I am running this test

    http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120916_GM_C3Q/

    I have been trying to improve the loading time of my wordpress blog. I have done everything have read on this subject and with no help.

    I was wondering if it could be my use of U-design, Could a coder who has free time help me out? or point me in a direction to fix any errors the design itself might have?

    Or maybe someone could link me some more info on how to improve what is wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Try using some cache plugin. Btw from google pagespeed your site got 91/100, that is pretty good :)

    Corvox,

    You could try the W3 Total Cache plugin from wordpress. That may help speed things up. I took a look at your source code. There are way too many http requests from style sheets and js files. Try combining those if you can. You can also try enabling mod_deflate on your server if it supports it. You would do this in your .htaccess file.

    Here is the plugin I mentioned,

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/

    Here is a link to some helpful information on modifying your .htaccess file for speeding up your site.

    Good luck!

    I would have to go with simplest solution and suggest revert theme first. Try that, go with default theme (Twenty Ten or Twenty Eleven) before going with more advanced troubleshooting options and plugins that you (possibly) won't need for now.

    You can download Google PageSpeed plugin and test your website. It is very helpful in pointing out what you need to do to improve the speed load of your website.
