I’ve disabled the plugin that puts the share buttons on the posts, so let’s see if that helps page loading. But I’ve also noticed that there’s an update to it, so it might be that if I install the new version, it will fix it as well.

OK, I”ve installed the new version. Let me know if you’re still having problems with page loads.

OK, new version didn’t fix it, so I’ve deactivated again. It does seem to be Google that was slowing things down.
