You can define a pagelist format for this.

First install Conditional Extensions to give you numerical comparisons

Add a page variable for todays date according to your
general date/time naming convention for the blog page names.
For YYYYMMDDHHMMSS names add this to config.php:

# add page variable for now in format YYYYMMDDHHMMSS
$FmtPV['$Now'] = 'strftime("%Y%m%d%H%M%S", time() )';

Then create a pagelist format in Site.LocalTemplates like this
(modify to what you want it to show, but you see the use of the conditional):

(:if le {=$Name} {$Now}:)
* [[{=$FullName}|+]]

The 'le' conditional comes from ConditionalExtensions and means lesser
or equal.

Use with (:pagelist ......... fmt=bloglist :)
