Why has my hosting become so slow?

GoDaddy hosting has become intolerably slow: is it certainly their fault? If so, can I do anything about it? If it isn't their fault, what am I doing wrong?

I am running a number of MySQL and PHP based websites using hosting from GoDaddy.com. Specifically, I am running three WordPress blogs and a MediaWiki based wiki. During the last few weeks, they have all become markedly slower than previously. Is this certainly the result of server-side congestion, or is there something I could do to speed things up?
To give an example, it now takes twenty seconds or more between clicking the 'Write' button on the main WordPress screen and actually having the page for writing entries come up. Naturally, this makes all of these sites frustrating to maintain.
None of the sites gets a huge amount of traffic (in total, they get under 200 visits a day). If the slowdown is GoDaddy's fault, is there anything I can do about it, short of switching to a new hosting provider? I am using their Economy level Linux shared hosting account.
