Blogger Archive: We need the option to change the order to newest to oldest

Update: There's blogger command that does this, but it's not straighforward for some reason. I'm going to log the progress of the tweaks in the comments.

Original

Blogger has archives. Bloggers can choose only two things: The frequency; and whether to enable pages.



I think there also needs to be a look at content-ordering. If you go to my archive, you'll see that the first archive-option is from November 2004. Which is nice.

But most people who review the archive don't want to start in November. They want to look at a daily archive for the past couple of days.

But they have to scroll all the way to the bottom.

It would be nice. . . if the blogger-publishers had the option to reverse the order.

Request

Please give users the option to tailor the archive order, similarly to how Haloscan offers options: Users can have the content display most recent first; or oldest first.
