On Blogging. The Future is Now

As I write these posts I occasionally have an idea of what I will say next and if you look back you will see me commenting about a future post. Indeed, in some cases I have used one post to set the stage for a subsequent post.

But I write these posts using WordPress (WP), and WP by default lists the most recent posts first. This is a common web convention, to present the most recent news first. But it also means those efforts to set the stage are to no avail, and it’s quite likely you will have read a page I have yet to write before you read this one.

Now WP has a plugin architecture and there are probably ways around this. I also recently noted that another piece of software has an option to present oldest posts first, or at least to simply easily allow reading posts in that order.

If I were very clever I would write the future posts now and the past posts in the future, but I haven’t yet figured out how to do that, so I’ll just stick to the conventional order.
