I would like users who type in my url to arrive at a home page that has my very first post. I am posting/blogging in such a way (somewhat like a story line) that it would be ideal if they saw my first post (the beginning of the story) when they arrive at my site (verses seeing my last addition to the story line). Is this possible?
In the ‘Reading Settings’ screen ( Settings->Reading ) . You can specify A Static Page to show on front page ( home page). My recommendation is put the content you would like people to see ( the beginning of the story) into a page and set that particular page as your front page.
