Integrate blog with website?

    I've been wanting to add a blog to my website, and while I can find techniques on how to create a blog on its own, I can't find anything on how to make it a part of my website. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    What is the problem? Create a subdomain and put wordpress on it :).
    Then link to blog form your main page and that's it ;)

    All you have to do is upload the blogging software up to a folder called /blog or whatever you want. Its no different - but without knowing which software you using it's difficult to help you set it up.

    yeah just don't install the blog into the root of your directory. put it in folder callled "blog"

    then it'll also help if you can get the wordpress theme to be identical to your website template. if you need help pm me.

    There are several ways to make a blog a "part of your website". One way is to include the RSS feed from your blog as custom formatted text. Another way, much more popular and useful, is to create a WordPress theme that matches your existing site.

    Here are two tutorials on the subject:

    How to Integrate Wordpress Into an Existing Website (Wordpress 1.5+)

    How to Create a Wordpress Theme (Wordpress 2.x)

    - If you're looking for any professional help, be sure to check out the official WordPress Consultant list on AutoMattic.com.

    Keep up the good work! : )
