Why my website takes so long to load?

Hi there,

My site ** http://tusharsaraf.com/ ** takes so long to load. Do you happen to why? it doesn't show any 404 errors in the network. CSS is minified. No JS. Just font awesome and google fonts CDN.

Thank you for helping me out!

Maybe check the file sizes of your images.

Your having performance issues mainly because you're using background-size: cover along with background-attachment: fixed, In my opinion you should use background-position instead of background-size and prepare some variations of images you're using for RWD purposes, then site would run smooth on every device.
