This is called “Blogger/Blogspot Title Swapping”. Swapping blogs title can help boost your position in search engine results page listing and also increase click through rate.

From an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) perspective, page title is the most important element in your blog in terms of ranking well in search engines. If you look at your browser’s title bar, you will notice that Blogger’s default templates display your blog title in front of each page or post title. After swapping the blog title, this default feature will be disabled and only your post title will be displayed on your browser’s title bar.

This kind of placement will be also appearing in Google search results. The reason why you should put post titles at the beginning is because users are more likely to search for specific posts content rather than the actual name of your blog. So having the post titles at the beginning increases your chances of being found.
