Why is my website loading slowly, and how can I fix it?

My blog (linked from my profile page) seems to load incredibly slowly (sometimes taking up to a minute), even though it's not a content heavy site.
Things that may be relevant:
- the blog is Wordpress v. 2.0.4
- the admin page for the blog loads up just fine, with no delay
- it used to be hosted at the .com version of the url, but after a brief scare in which I lost access to that url (though it was later regained) it was switched to .org, and I'm not certain that I changed absolutely everything that ought to have been
- the page displays my Twitter feed, which is the main content that resides on the main page and comes from outside the site itself
Why is it loading slowly, and what can I do to fix it?
