Reverse the order of postings

I think I have seen how to do this before, but now I can't find it.  I would like my most recent post to show up first on my blog page, and my oldest post to be last.  How do I reverse the order of the postings?  Confused

Sorry, there is no setting to change the displayed order.  Blogger is set to show the most recent post first … period.

That said, here are some options:

1. provide your readers a link to the very first post.  Then they can read that first, and when they reach the bottom there should be a link to 'Next post' … just like turning the page of a book

2. if you *really* want the oldest post to be first … change the date so it thinks it's the most recent.  This is a very labor intensive solution as you need to keep changing the dates of every post to keep them in your desired order

3. if you want to print a book of your blog – check out It will put the printed pages in order from first to last

My bad – now I know what I was doing wrong – I saved the first blog to my desktop instead of saving the dashboard – all is well – except maybe the operator!!  Thanks for your help – you guys are great!!
