The meaning of blog

My blog is having an existential crisis right now. What is the meaning of its life? What is the purpose of updating it? Who am I trying to communicate with and why?

I would like to build a personal website and import this blog onto it, but realistically, that's probably not going to happen for a while and it's been an excuse for letting my current digital home stagnate. That's what this blog feels like - a little apartment I rent on the web, the place on the internets where I take my shoes off and keep my coffee maker.

Anyway, it seems important, for some reason, to explain why I haven't been home much lately. Maybe my anxiety about my infrequent updates is just part of my general anxiety about keeping routines and order, but it feels important. I'm just not sure why. And I have cultivated a small audience here, which is kind of cool, so I thought I'd just, you know, leave a note on the fridge for you saying I'll be back soon.
