Dear Bloggers,

When you are choosing your words for pagination, please choose carefully and with a brain.

The previous/next dichotomy apparently throws some of you for a space/time continuum loop. “Previous” means “before.” You’re posting chronologically. So chronologically, if I click on “previous” at the bottom of your page, it should take me to PREVIOUS (e.g. older) POSTS, not to the page I was previous-ly on (full of posts I have already read.)

Please fix this,

P.S. You could try the classic older/newer dichotomy if this is too much for you. Or just add “posts” or “entries” into the mix. Whatever you do, stop confusing the internet.
