    Is it possing through a hack or some kind of desktop software to queue up, say, a month's worth of daily posts?

    Let's say I write 15 posts and I want them to be added every other day to my blog. How can I do this?

    Use the advanced write screen, scroll down and you'll see a timestamp box.
    Check the little box to the left, then set the date/time for publication.

    If you want to test, write a test post for 10 minutes ahead and sit and watch :)

    that's VERY cool, i didn't even know about that....thanks

    so i could sort of form a queue of posts...have like 10 posts, all set for a day apart, and it would do it automatically, correct?

    Yep :)

    The date/time work to the minute.

    The main page is set up to display all posts from the current time and older. So any posts set in the future don't show up. ;)

    One thing I've noticed, and it may be a Live Journal issue, but when I create a post in drafts in WP, and then publish it in the future, LJ's RSS feed gets the post with 2 date/timestamps on it - one with the original creation date (which is a broken permalink as the post doesn't exist there) and one with the correct permalink.

    Is this anything anyone is aware of, and is there a fix? I'm assuming that future dating posts will suffer the same problem. It's notable that this only affects RSS posts on LJ, not anywhere else, but it's been enough to keep me away from queueing posts like this, though I'd really like to be able to.
