I have decided to create a blog that links off of my ecommerce website. It will be in a subdirectory, www.yoursite.com/blog. I will have links from the blog onto our regular website and of course vice versa our ecommerce site will have a link to our blog.
We are running the ecommerce website already and I'm wondering which software would work best to compliment the ecommerce site. We have seen Joomla, WordPress, Expression Engine, and Drupal.
We just plan to have a basic blog and it won't necessarily be a standalone website. Most blogging will be done by one person and we just want to have separate categories for the subject areas on the blog. We'd want the ability to have pictures within our posts and hyperlinks to our ecommerce site along with standard HTML in the posts. We'd also likely want to get a custom template done at a later date. Which solution would work best for these type of needs?

Joomla - already had been intergated into Oscommerce.
See Joomla Hacks :: Joomla Components, Joomla Modules, Joomla Templates, Joomla Mambots (http://www.joomlahacks.com)

Might be a better start with that. Personally I have used WordPress before which I thought one of the better ones out there - however never was need to be intergated into oscommerce - it was a separet project. But looks likes someone already done that too... WordPress › Support Tags — os commerce (http://wordpress.org/tags/oscommerce)

Quite possably using the same process to include Expression Engine, Drupal etc... into oscommerce or osCMax.
