My Blog Is Too Slow

I created my own blog like a month ago and today I've noticed that it is almost impossible to access it, it's just too slow.
I have no idea why but it takes like 30 seconds to load completely.
I'm concerned because I have a lot of readers who visit my blog everyday, also I've read that Google doesn't like it when your site is too slow.
Why is my blog so slow?

First, make sure it's not just your computer. Try to get into your blog from another computer and see how much it takes for the entire website to load.

Have you made any changes to your blog? Maybe you added a new widget that's slowing down your entire website. If this is the case, try disabling it and then try to access your blog again.

The other reason for a slow website is a problem with the server that's hosting your blog.
If you're not using a Wordpress.com or Blogger.com blog account and you're instead paying for hosting service it probably means you're sharing your hosting with other websites and if one of these website is getting a lot of hits, then all websites hosted in the server start to get a lot slower.
In this case you should upgrade your hosting plan.
