    Is it true that search engines look at the loading time of your blog and it affects the ranking?

    This is definitely true, which is why you should try to use relatively simple themes. The more complex the theme the more overhead it creates. Like calling external javascripts and multiple css files. It all effects load time however small it may seem to you.
