Blogger Expertise Needed!

First I want to remind everyone to enter my Handmade for Fall Giveaway - here!

Next, I am sending a question out to all you blogging experts:

I have a friend who is the principal of a school. He keeps a principal's blog. He would like to find a way to create a list of his staff members' birthdays that will automatically post a happy birthday message to them on the day.

Does anyone know if this is possible? I know he can do scheduled posts for each of those days, but I'm wondering how far in advance Blogger will allow you to schedule, and how many posts? Also, just wondering if there is an easier way than manually scheduling each separate birthday post.

If you have any advice for me...I'll love you forever!

I do not know either how to do it. I hope you find someone that does. I already entered that wonderful giveaway.

I have no idea whatsoever. However, if it will help me win your giveaway, will it help if I make something up??
I really wanna win. Did I already say that?

sorry...typos...up there! you might show a Principal..i can't have that!

I have heard of "scheduled-posts" i think it is an option underneath where you create your New-post...it says "post-options"...then just update the post date and time to the day you want the post to publish...then select publish...on the exact date and time you selected it should appear. then do this with as many posts as you need to do...individually with each birthday.

....i think!!...maybe play with it and see if that is how it works...I don't want to be responsible for messing up a schools Blog...i'd be terribly depressed...hope it helps though!

...if it works do I get an extra entry to your contest...oh..I so hope it works! ;)
