I thought I'd post a little note about the slow connection......My blog consistently ranks high for content but low for connection. The reason for this is that I put up high quality images (50kb) on my site for you to enjoy. I hate poor quality photos and sometimes a lot is lost when I lower the image quality.
If you'd like Beadweaver's loading time to be faster, please add a comment to this note and let me know. I can change the site and make it faster, if that matters to you.
