I think there are three options open to you:
Create a blog on another domain name, with hyperlinks connecting the two.
Add a blog to your website as a separate entity, e.g.,
blog.MySite.com or MySite.com/blog,
with hyperlinks connecting the existing site and the blog.
- Convert the existing site to a blog.
The first option is technically the simplest, as it involves the least amount
of change to the existing site.
Options 1 and 2 raise the issue that it may be difficult to achieve a unified
look and feel between what already exists and what the blog will be adding.
Think about the user experience.
Option 3 is likely to incur more cost in time and money, but the end result
will probably be more satisfying and easier to maintain going forward.
Here is a very informative article that you should read before you decide what to do:
Migrating A Website To WordPress Is Easier Than You Think
If you need help choosing or implementing the best solution, the Warriors
For Hire section of this forum is a great place to go.
Whatever you do, PLEASE maintain secure, redundant backups every step
of the way.

Your web host might go out of business tomorrow, and your entire internet
presence could be irretrievably lost.
Your computer might be stolen or destroyed by fire while you are attending
the Libertarian Party of Texas 2014 Convention this weekend, and all your
personal data could be gone.
You could suffer a pulmonary embolism because you spend too many hours
every day sitting at your computer, leading to coronary thrombosis and a
debilitating stroke that renders you unable to act or communicate with the
people around you. You may spend days, weeks, or months in a hospital
bed with a breathing tube stuck down your throat and your wrists shackled
to the bed rails. You may feel as if you are dying of thirst, or that you may
suffocate at any moment, but there is no way to tell anybody what you are
feeling, and the nurses will just smile and assure you that you are making
very good progress. The nurse call button may be just beyond your reach,
and your nose might be itching, or the urinary catheter could be causing
you pain, but even if you could call the nurse, how would you tell her what
you wanted? Didn't it occur to anybody to provide you with a pencil and
paper so you could write a note? Why didn't you anticipate that this might
happen, and discuss it with your primary care physician beforehand, so
everybody would know your wishes, and at least make the best of a bad
situation? Are your holographic will, your advance care directive, and all
your secret passwords carefully recorded and accessible to your heirs
and assigns so that they may take action as needed to pay the bills and
keep your business running while you are out of commission?
