2 .Limit numbers of posts from homepage
Decrease the number of posts on the homepage it helps you to increase the loading speed of your Blogger blog. To change numbers of displayed posts on homepage go to layout and then edit Blog posts. The recommendation is set 4 or 5 posts on the homepage.
3 .Minimize image size
This one is really important. If the size of your blog’s images is high so definitely your blog load slowly. There are many ways to compress images some online sites or tools, but my way is to Photoshop. After editing or opening images in Photoshop, you need to save them, but at that point, you have to click on file then click on > Save for the web instead of save as. It really works because when you save your images by clicking on save for web Photoshop automatically compress the size of your images.
4 .Reduce the number of Widgets
Don’t use too much widget on your blog because it makes slow your blog. Use only important widget like subscription box, popular box and a few more.
Suggestion moves your widget to the bottom of the blog.
5 .Compress CSS codes
CSS helps you to create a good looking blog. You can find CSS codes right above ]]></b:skin>. You can use https://cssminifier.com to compress CSS codes.
7 .Background image
No doubt it takes times to load. Use either a color as the background and use small size images for the header as well.
8 .Too many ads are not good
If yet your blog loading speed not increased after applying above instructions. You need to reduce the number of ads on your blog’s each page. It would be maximum three. Or Use async ads when available thus, they will get loaded only after the site loads.
9 .Use embed Video
Media like images and videos takes times to load. You can quickly reduce the size of images but when you lessen the size of the video it directly affects the quality of the video. So for high-quality videos, you need to use YouTube embed option.
Bellow an example
