Hi fellow bloggers!
Not only will this be another place to share your stories and wisdom, but I will also be using it as a way to share great blogging tips and products I’ve discovered. I know many of you ladies (and gentlemen!) are into blogging for the long haul, so I hope the information I provide becomes helpful. That being said, some recommended products may contain affiliate links, or come directly from my own web design business, Risen Upon Thee.
Also, if you have a blogging tip or product you’d love to feature in this linkup, please contact me! I would love to share your knowledge with everyone else, so we can all grow and help one another. I’ll also share a bit about your blog, testimony and mission online if you would like! Applicable to both contributors and non-contributors.
Please share only Christian related or homemaking posts here. Any links not in line with these topics will be removed. You are welcome to engage with the posts of other bloggers, but it is not required. If you would like to feature this linkup on your blog, use the button below! 🙂

Now, without further delay… one of my top blogging tips!
Delete Unnecessary Plugins & Media
Websites can accumulate a lot of bulk, fast. If you own a self-hosted WordPress website, it’s important that you delete all plugins and photos you are no longer using. Whenever someone visits a page on your site, the server has to load all files associated with it, and the more files stemming from unneeded plugins and media, the more lag.
You may think that deactivating a plugin is good enough, but if you really don’t see yourself using it again, you should fully delete it. Also, anytime you update a graphic on your site, you should delete the old versions and store them elsewhere on your computer.
Right now I am in the process of updating graphics for all posts on BT, and whenever I upload a new one, I delete the old. I like the feeling of an organized, no bulk site, and my load times are great because of it. If you are on WordPress.com, you may be able to implement similar practices.
This may start off as a lot of work… but visitors being able to access your content as quickly as possible is worth it 🙂
