Perhaps it's just me

It may just be the sequential part of my abstract sequential brain showing through. I have a really hard time with the way blogs present information in newest-to-oldest order. Having the newest post on top is handy in terms of knowing how recently someone has posted, but it makes reading a pain. If you read the posts from top to bottom, you're reading backwards in time. If you scroll down to the last thing you read and work your way up, you wind up doing this screen-scrolling shoe-shine act -- up and down, up and down -- as you finish reading one post, scroll up to find the start of the next, and then read down that one. Sigh.

This is probably related to my need to orient paper maps so that North on the sheet is actually pointing North. It has to do with how things fit in my head: a very keen but very rigid sense of spatial order.
