It’s Tyme to say “sayonara” to ShareThis

Since this blog popped up out of the ground, I’ve been using a plugin called “ShareThis” to simplify the look of this place and make it easy for you to share posts on social networks no matter what bookmarketing, social network doohickey you use.

Last night, I was previewing today’s iPhone post and noticed that it was taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R for the post to be displayed.

And then it hit me. Tyme told me privately a few weeks ago that my blog was really slow when she viewed it – something I hadn’t seen before. I have looked and looked for the problem and kept coming up dry.

Until tonight.

The culprit was the new ShareThis that calls home to figure out whatever it figures out. So it is out of here like you know what through a goose.

I’ll add some buttons at the bottom shortly so you can mark posts that are important to you – without the overhead of ShareThis. Sometimes easy isn’t always best.

And a big shout out to Tyme for giving me a heads up in the first place. I owe you one.
