Don't get me wrong. Open source software like WordPress is wonderful with access to a wide array of plugins which make development so much easier.

The trouble is that many of them offer great functionality but are poorly implemented and my sites suffers from huge bloat of scripts and stylesheets. Most I will probably abandon or write my own. So far caching plugins, irregular tasks like sitemaps are the only ones which have probably secured a long term place on the site.

I hope my own efforts will be appreciated. I look at them and know there are things I should do like adding set up screens but at least they are designed to be low impact.
