There is no real sequence to adding. You will be mixing all of this up occasionally, and when you first get it set anyway.
There is a less effective, but less hands on way to compost in a "lasagna" fashion. This method requires layering materials, and will not require much maintenance, but there is a lot to be said about a well mixed, and maintained compost pile.
