  • You don't mention your web development skill level, so can't assume one way or the other (basic/intermediate/advanced).

    Below is a link tutorial on how to "embed" a (Wordpress) blog in an existing site.  The tutorial assumes a knowledge of HTML and CSS and basic PHP skills.

    Another way would be to create a Wordpress theme based on the your client's site. That would take a little more effort and skill level in PHP, CSS and HTML.  If you are looking for a developer to do the work, try www.freelancer.com, there's plenty of people that do Wordpress type work.  Of course Wordpress (as a blog platform) is only one option, I'm sure there's others.

    As far as embedding or integrating blogs into websites, try these sites (on Google).
