How should a blog be used?

I was reading some random blogs today looking for inspiration for a post of my own.  I came across a blog I hadn’t seen before, T.Howe | Glosses, and a post that ended with this line:

New year’s resolution? To use this blog the way it should be used!

This idea that there is a way a blog should be used intrigued me.  Am I using this blog the way it should be used?

I use this blog to record my thoughts, to try to create conversation, to ask questions.  I use it to comment on things — issues in education, technology and life — that interest me.

I have other blogs that serve other purposes, and I guess they do what they are supposed to do.  But this blog has a more nebulous purpose.  I guess that means it is fulfilling its purpose.  (Low expectations are easier to meet!)

Is there some way that a blog should be used, though?  If so, what is it?  Any ideas?
