that is the main issue, dynamic ip that changes frequently and
blocking port 80. Before starting:
start a webserver (just start it)
from the internet (not a machine on your Cox network)
goto to http://<yourip>
if that works, they you can pick some software
blog software depends on what you want to do
bloxsom is easy and works

yep... there are plenty of them that work well.
