Help with pedal order

I was hoping that I could get some advice on the order of my pedal board. I have posted a diagram of my pedal order now. I am not sure that this is the most effective order. Specifically I am not sure about whether I stuck my clue box in at the right place.

Any help would be nice.

Running a fender deluxe tele into a all tube Carvin 50w nomad 1x12.

I play early 90's indie rock/lo-fi in the style of Modest Mouse, Pavement, Fugazi, etc...

tuner -> dynacomp -> bluebox -> fulldrive -> tremolo -> chorus -> delay -> reverb

Maybe put the tremolo in front of the fulldrive. Try both, see what you prefer.

The bluebox is a wierd one. I have one. I usually prefer it after my compressor, it tracks slightly better (I leave my compressor on all that time, sensitivity at about 20%). Though if you use it more for freak out noise sessions so that may not be a problem.
I can't remember what it does if I place an overdrive in front of it. The pedal is just friggin wierd.

I do leave my compressor on at all times.

Theblue box is weird. I use it two ways. I turn the blend up all the way and use it as a heavy an slightly octaved distortion. But also for those odd noise driven cracked out jam style moments.

does your amp have an effects loop? if it does, I'd put the tremolo, chorus, delay and reverb through that and leave everything else the same.

It does have an effects loop. Why would you only put those effects throught the loop? Why not all of them? Sorry I am kinda a noob at this stuff.
