Caution: Blogger at Work

You may notice over the next few days that I’m playing with the website. It came to my attention that it was running very slowly, especially on smartphones and other small screens.

After a little study on what makes WordPress sites do that, I’m trying out some new “themes” that I hope will run much better. If you have feedback about the look of the blog or the speed at which it loads, I’m all ears. Please understand, though, that since this is a DIY operation, I may or may not be able to implement your ideas!

As a certain Star Trek character* once said, “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer!” I’m a rabbi, not a website designer, so my skills are limited.¬†Thanks very much for your patience as I tinker.

  1. Your blog has indeed been very slow to load on my mobile too. I just didn’t have the energy to “complain”. I can confirm that it’s now much faster to display (though the phone still takes much time till it shows that loading is complete). I _guess_ it has to do with advertising and a possibly different way ads are rendered in the different themes.

    1. I gather that some themes are better set up for mobile use. I wish they had been more upfront about that. I write posts at a keyboard but thanks to my disabilities I do much of the “housekeeping” on my phone.
