This can be a really strange question and that i apologize:

I have been requested whether it's possible to not import our blog from Wordpress to Drupal but simply ensure that it stays in Wordpress being an archive and re-direct our customers say from hostname/blog/... to hostname/wordpress/... whenever a URL matches the Wordpress URL pattern.

I have never heard about anybody trying this and I am curious about issues and whether it's even possible.

Thanks!

This appears like it ought to be really quite simple to complete. I intend to make use of the mod_rewrite module for apache:

We'll simply need to configure a .htaccess file to redirect Web addresses matching hostname/blog/pattern/ - where pattern fits a Wordpress URL blog pattern.

I personally use mod_rewrite on my small Drupal site. Here's a good example I personally use to redirect customers to www.earldouglas.com once they access earldouglas.com:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^earldouglas.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.earldouglas.com/$1 [L,R=301]

You could attempt something similar to the next:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /blog
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /wordpress [L,QSA]
