I was looking over the download time for my blog   [obscured]   via this tool:   [obscured]  
I'm not happy that it takes nearly 8 seconds to load my blog. Since Google cares about this kind of thing I'd really like to make my blog load as fast as possible. My score on that tool is 86/100 but I'm sure there are things that can be improved.

One of the problem areas might be all the different servers that have to be contacted each time the page is loaded...twitter, facebook, etc. Instead it would probably be a lot more efficient to have those stats fetched on internal pages and somehow cached. Or some of it might be even better to just run daily on a cron job.

If you can handle this project please mention the specific areas you think need addressing and what you can do to handle it. Maybe you can estimate the webpagetest score you think you can achieve.
