My Ubuntu 12.04 LTS worked fine for few months after I installed it.

But it has now slowed down considerably. For example: initially it took about only 2 or 3 seconds to load LebreOffice Writer, but now it takes about 15 seconds to load the same.

I properly update essential security updates.

My hardware: 2GB memory and 2.3 GHz processor(Intel i5)

What may have gone wrong? Any ideas please?

There can be many factors responsible for this.

One of them is installing more packages. As you install more and more packages, the computer slows because they might have their daemons which take memory and hence slow down your computer.

If there is a process which is taking more memory, you can fix the problem using the commands given in the answer to this question: Ubuntu slows down over time?.
