WP folder installation question

converting a static html site to wp

I already have wp installed on a site in a separate folder /blog

The main content of the site is all in separate html files stored in the root directory.

To make it easier to maintain the site, I want to use wp to store the content currently saved in the html files.

I am not sure about the best way to go about this. Obviously i don't want to have 2 installs of wp.

Possibly I would move wp to the root folder. Save all the html content in pages and then possible do something with categories to save blog posts in the /blog folder to keep that url structure.

Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
