No – Blogger displays posts in reverse date order … period.
If someone wants to start at the beginning and read forward, like a book, they can open the first post, then keep clicking “newer post” at the bottom. If that doesn’t make sense, see if these video help:
And, another thing, if you use the Blog2Print service sometime to make a book of your blog, the book will start at the earliest post and go forward in time.
Does that help?

Not quite true. You can edit and change the publish date by selecting Posts, edit each of the posts and reset the publish dates to create the order that you want the posts to appear.
I remembered I’d created a trip log for a previous trip to Mexico, but forgotten how I’d done it. A search of: “how to set Blogger to make the oldest posts display first” gave me directions to restore my senior memory to recall exactly what I had done.
For my travels, the family enjoys a trip report after each adventure, does not care to keep up with a normal Blog, and reversing the blog order to reflect the trip creates a great way to do the report.
Thanks for the link to your blog, you’ve done a great job of combining text and photos to remember your travels. I love it.
As for putting your posts in order from beginning to end – you exemplify “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” 🙂 by changing the actual dates you got your Days in order:
- Feb 17 = Day 1
- Feb 16 = Day 2
- Feb 15 = Day 3
But, if someone wanted to have the real dates on their posts – there is no option. It’s a frequently requested feature, I’m not sure why they don’t give it to us.

If you really, really want that – here are some hacks to make it happen:
but, be sure to think it thru before attempting any of them. It really is not normally a good idea to have all your posts starting with the oldest. Anyone visiting your blog will think there is nothing new and go away. If you have one particular trip that you would like people to see from beginning to end, consider making a link list in the side bar for them to follow. Or send people to the first post in a series and teach your readers to click the “Newer post” link at the bottom to read the next one.
