Hi! I have a website, which contains a blog. I haven't posted to this blog in ages and ages. I would like to start updating the blog again and do some stuff to the website, but embarrassingly, I don't know how.

An old boyfriend set up the domain name for me. I had it transferred to me a couple of years ago. I maintained a blog on it in 2005-2007 with Movable Type. All the blog posts still exist, but I want to get in and be able to Do Stuff with it again.
I have no idea how to even begin going about starting to figure out how I used to get into this thing, what my passwords were, all that. I don't even know the right words. Can you tell me where I should start? Or is it hopeless for me to try to do this on my own? If that's the case, what kind of person do I need to help me?
(I realize I sound like a complete idiot here. But I used to do all this stuff, built and tweaked the blog myself in fact - but it's been a long time and I haven't thought about it at all for years, it's like approaching an archaeological dig. And please feel free to ask for clarification/more information - I feel so at sea here I don't know what information is relevant and what isn't.)
