    I'm not certain I understand what you are asking.

    If you wish to set a description I believe that Blogger lets you do that by modifying your template.

    I have no idea how a mission statement would help you out regarding your description.

    Regarding visitors, if you feel you would get more with a better description... it is possible however I don't think that the description is given much weight by Google. The description is important because it is what is displayed along with your URL in the Google search results page. Try changing it and see if it helps.

    You may be able to improve your rank by getting your own URL (with your keywords) and hosting.

    just my 2 cents

    Definitely. It's still super useful to have a meaningful description, because it helps your result jump out amongst all the other stuff on that page.

    A correctly constructed meta description element should do the trick. Check out this page at Google Webmaster Central Blog.

    Meta description is what your prospective customers will use to decide whether or not to click on your impression. Engage them and write some compelling content making them want to find out more.
