Updating, Editing, and Archiving Parts of a Webpage

What type of content management system can I use to update small parts of an existing page?

I apologize in advance if this is confusing. Currently, my employer puts out a monthly online newsletter of funding opportunities for researchers. The problem we are finding is that it is very hard to archive the funding opportunities and avoid reprinting the same ones. We also want to add funding opportunities more frequently than once a month. My boss wants to have parts of the webpage of funding opportunities be entered and then archived through a blog-type format. However, the only change we want to make to the look and feel of the site is to have a date listing for when the funding opportunity was added. So, the page would ideally look something like this. I have put everything in brackets that I would like to have as part of a blog or other content management system.


Federal Opportunities
[Opportunity 1]
[Opportunity 2]
[Opportunity 3]

Regional Opportunities
[Separate Opportunity 1]
[Separate Opportunity 2]
[Separate Opportunity 3]

Other Information
Paragraph 1
Paragraph 2

Is this even possible? Is there a blog-like editor that would allow us to easily edit, write, and archive only certain paragraphs on a page. Ideally, the archives would be separated by category. The additional constraint is that we do not have access to a SQL server and are not allowed to install one.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Look at Codegrrl.com - I have a feeling some of their small scripts can help you.

You could set up a new blog and include it on your site using PHP includes.
