Your TTFB does look to be an issue. I tested your homepage on my computer just now (from Europe) and saw a 1.5s wait-time, which is basically time spent waiting without anything happening. Definitely somethinig worth tackling. Are you on shared hosting?

Yes, we're on a HostGator shared hosting account. Although it's not completely finished, we wanted to roll it out as soon as possible to get it indexed in the search engines.
