So i admit my blog is outdated and a little stale so I want to update to the latest and greatest version.  My question: is it possible to upgrade my old version (2.0 i think) to the latest version and retain all the data in the database, can it still use the same database? or will i lose all old blog posts?

You should be able to upgrade without losing any data.

1. Backup your database.

2. Run applicable upgrade scripts. If you on 2.0 - run upgrade from 2.0 to 2.5 and then from 2.5 to 2.6. All scripts are in the /setup folder.

Ok, I just realized i'm running 1.45.....I couldn't get the blog to load because the database transaction log was full.  Anywho, would the upgrade be the same as you stated before?

Yes, more scripts to run but essentially the same.
