I have a site that was created in frontpage 2003.
I have a blog created in blogger.

How do I add my blogger blog to my existing site?

When you set up a blog from blogger.com there is an option where you can host the blog on googles server as your domain name, you need to create a sub domain for you site like "blog.mysite.com" and then add the dns server address's that google provide to your domain in zoneedit, within 48 hours your blog will be working for "blog.mysite.com"

Thanks for your response... so how do I go about setting up a sub-domain? And what is zoneedit?

Thanks..

A less complicated way would be to simply add the blog to a separate folder under the root. Something like: example.com/blog
Then you don't have to play with setting up a subdomain (if you're not comfortable with that).

if i understood the OP correctly the blog is hosted at blogger.com.
you probably need to add a CNAME record at your registrar.
something like:
blog.example.com CNAME example.blogger.com

According to Blogger Help [help.blogger.com] you just set the blog to Publish to whatever FTP path you want on your server. There's no need to play with CNAMEs then...unless you want to.

I would just have gone for a quick and dirty frame based solution without going deeper. I'll have to read up on the alternatives as I want to do a bit more with the little blog that I have been playing with for the past year or so.

i wasn't considering that you could publish externally.
i was thinking generally rather than specifically about blogger.com.
