Blogger Help

I have finally decided that I need to stop using my family's names in my blog. The problem is: how do I take them out of all previous posts? I'm trying to figure out if there is a simple search and replace function on Blogger where I can just search for specific names and then tell Blogger to replace them with the pseudonym. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Edited to add: Thanks for all your help. After looking at everyone's suggestions, including that fabulous website, I've decided the easiest thing is to first sort all posts by name (so I'm searching for one name at a time) then go into each post to edit and use the control F function (which I had never known about before) to search for each time the name is used so I can then manually change it. Pain in the @ss! As you can see, I started tonight and will try to work on it a little every night until it is complete.

I hate to say it, I just went through post after post and changed them...of course, it was only a few posts, so it didn't take me that long.
You might be able to add a search feature and do it, I know you can do it in wordpress...
Sorry I cannot be of more help!

There is no easy way. :-(

Ctrl + F will search a web page for text, but you still have to go post by post.

Alot of people seem to like word press. It might be easier to just start a new blog. You really have a lot of entries.
