    Here's the analysis of your home page. It's 7MB, which is A LOT. Home page should be below 100KB to load fast. The main reason are plenty of images and scripts on the home page.

    There are also some issues with your hosting server, which I cannot explain.
    Your hosting seems to be slow.
    Alertra speed check also shows your hosting as pretty slow.
    SEMrush
    So, you have to size down your huge 7MB home page AND (maybe) consider to change hosting.

    According to the Firefox extension, it took 35 seconds. That's pretty much time. :)
    Maybe 80% was taken from the widget and covers in the middle. Try to optimize or remove them if you want.

    lol, it's not 7mb. I can't download 7mb in 30 seconds with my connection. I think this tool is broken. :)

    EDIT: Actually the tool shows 768823 bytes which is ~750 kilobytes, not 7MB.

    Yes, I was exagerating. :) . Anyway, this size is the main reason for slow page loading.
