Wish: Reverse Sort for Blog Reading

Have you ever come across a blog late (past its publish date) and had to scroll way down and then back-track to catch the thread of what was going on? It leads to a lot of scrolling up and down and happens to me often when I come across a blog while searching. And it just happened again while I was checking out the new Marketing Mag blog. Turns out they’re trying a ‘campaign in progress’ doco approach via blog. Very annoying to read scrolling backwards. I very much want a reverse sort button like email. Blogs record entry dates, seems shouldn’t be too much to ask… See you tomorrow morning at the Drake.

    A button that gives the reader the option to switch modes isn’t a bad idea, but a blog in chronological order is a disaster.
    I only know of one example and it has since been abandoned:
    That’s the blog for Seth Godin’s “summer project” last year called “Change This”. The project is still going but the blog seems to have fallen into disuse. But you can see by visiting it that it makes sense to a new visitor who wants the full story but is very useless for regular visitors and those looking for current status.

    I use both. =) My day pages are chronological because I suspect most people (including my mom) check my pages once a day. I provide calendar controls, so people can either read days in sequence or go reverse-chronological on days.
