Have you ever wondered why your blog sometimes takes ages to draw?

I came across a blog the other day that used some strange sounding plugin name, and the plugin for some reason relied on connecting to the publishers site to do something or other.  The publishers site must have been down and so the page was never drawn, it just sat there for ages.

I’ve just noticed the same thing with my own blog after I’d activated the ShareThis plugin the other day.  I wondered why I’d deactivated it, and of course clearly I’d forgotten it causes my blog to hang.

So I’ve turned it off again.

Annoying isn’t it?
