No. I can add the CSS class to the echo in the html document, but this is applied to the all of the echo. What I am trying to do is to format the text "This entry was recorded at:" and the .$blogdate.  before it is echoed in the html because the .$blogentry. needs to formatted differently.

Try this...
$newText = $row_currentBlog['BlogEntry'];
$newText .=  "<br /><span class=\"ranking2\">"."This entry was recorded at: ".$blogdate."<br />".$blogentry."</span><br />";
