Try the NewPageBoxPlus recipe.  With it, the (:newpagebox:)
markup can be used on the Birthday page to give people a place
to enter their name -- like:

    Enter your name in the box below:

When someone enters their name in the box, it will take them to a
(blank) page where they can enter their message, the message will
be stored under the person's name.

In the Birthday page itself, you can then list all of the
birthday messages by using:

    (:pagelist group=Birthday:)

In this way, visitors to your site won't ever be editing the
Birthday page itself.
