Front Page 2003

Does anyone know of a way to build a blog using Front Page 2003?  Or can you direct me to a good instructional site to develop a blog utilizing FP 2003?  Or is there a better web based tool that you would recommend for doing a corporate intranet blog?

A blog usually requires a database and a server side language (ASP, ASP.NET, PHP) to communicate with the database.  

Personally, I bought a script for my blog and I host it myself.  I do this so I can have complete control of the data, etc.   A lot of people use Wordpress and Blogger (you can download Wordpress if you wish.

If you want to host your blog, you need to know what your server will support.  Usually, if it is a Windows server, you could use ASP or ASP.NET with MS Access / MSSQL.  If you are on a *NIX server, PHP with a mysql database.

I am using a windows server that supports ASP.  I have ASP configured now with FP Server extensions.  So knowing this what would you recommend?
There are a number of ASP blog scripts but when I owned a hosting and web development firm, we recommended Matthew1471's BlogX Script

It is pretty easy to use / configure.  

UBlog was another one and it seems they have  UBlog Reload which might be interested.  

I liked ASP - I was not a programmer but it was easy enough for me to decipher a few things.  I have not really gotten into ASP.NET.  I had heard awhile back that Microsoft was trying to push people away from ASP and to ASP.NET.  
I used to build blogs in Frontpage, but over time I found that Wordpress is a better and MUCH easier solution.
