WP plugins slowing down my site

Sep 3, 2013 by sally23
Hi all
I am using WordPress 3.5 for my website. Over the years I found and used plugins for almost everything I wanted to add or change in my website. I am no programmer so plugins have made my life much easier. However over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed that some plugins have become kind of slow and the overall performance of my website is also slowing down.
Can someone please shed some advice on what can I do to enhance the performance of my plugins and my overall site speed
Thanks and regards

1.For a start you need to make sure that you always use the latest WP version so I would advise you to update to WP 3.6
2.Always keep your plugins updated.
3.check all your activated plugins and make sure  you are actually making use of them. If you are not using any of the plugins, deactivate it.

In addition to the previous answer,  try not to over use plugins. If something can be done easily without a plugin then do it without a plugin. Too many plugins can cause your website to slow down and can also cause some other performance problems.
