Backwards

Reading time: < 1 min

Question (seeing as you all liked the last one so much): if you had two blog posts, side by side, in which order would you expect to read them? Left to right (newest on left, older on right) or right to left (newest on right, older on left)?

My thinking is that we read (in Western society) from left to right, so having the newest post on the left makes sense. However to go “back” to an older post by moving to the right feels wrong. Surely to go “back” you move to the left (like you would to go back a page in a book).

I’m confused and contradicted all at the same time. If any of the above makes sense I’d appreciate your thoughts on the matter?
