    @Gameboy, i have visited your blog and you are right about load time of your blog, it is taking too much time. i think images are not the concern for you. You are using adbrite in your blog - it is taking too much time to load. I suggest you to try Infolinks.com.

    My questions is referring to Wordpress and pages.

    I wan to only use Lazy Loader on my Blog page but not on the rest since it misses with how the images load.

    Is there a means to only define using this plugin on a certain page?

    You can restrict JavaScript from loading on certain pages, but you are talking about wordpress right ?
