Blog crashing browser

My own blog crashes my own browser.

Well that’s just lovely. My own blog is crashing my web browser. I can access the “admin” page (and thus make posts) just fine, but loading the main screen takes forever and eventually crashes that browser tab. This is a Linux box running an older Core 2 Duo CPU and 4 gigs of RAM. It should take more than a blog page to do that.
Suspicion so far falls on the cross-posting plugin that makes my blog posts appear on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc, and allow people visiting my blog to “share” posts on those services. Watching the Chrome developer tools while the page loads, it’s taking forever to pull up links to sites I’ve certainly never directly linked to, such as “”.
Oddly enough, some of the worst offenders are google syndication and google ad services. I don’t run google ad words or on my blog…
