One of the best things about the WordPress publishing platform is that it gives you endless customization options.
Most of the customization comes via plugins, which are small programs that you install on your site. There are thousands of plugins, serving nearly every purpose you can imagine: drop caps, forms, tables, security, search-engine optimization, blog comments, caching, site backups, and more.
Most plugins are free. But they all come with a cost: they slow down your website’s performance.
In less than 45 minutes, I found and eliminated the slowpoke plugins installed on TheSolopreneurLife.com. In the process, I improved my WordPress speed by 60 percent. This is how I did it.
