I love BlogAds, but sometimes it looks like their servers are slow and that that problem sometimes causes our blog to hang, on my browser anyway, when it’s loading. As an experiment, I removed the BlogAds from the ChicagoBoyz front page while leaving them on the individual-archive pages (e.g., this one) and our Contributors’ page. The result, for me at least, is that the page without the ads loads much faster. The question that I have for readers is, do you experience any of the same difficulty with slow-loading pages that I am experiencing? I’d really like to figure out what the problem is, so that I can fix it. I hope it’s the result of a coding error on my part.
UPDATE: OK, first update ever before I published a post. I see that the slow-loading problem has disappeared for the moment. That suggests that a server issue is responsible. At any rate this problem is intermittent, so I am not reassured by its current absence.
UPDATE2: I’m deactivating BlogAds from all pages until the problem is resolved.
