An example of a good reference blog post (to me) and my overall vision

Its right here, at Swiss Army Librarian, where he takes an anonymous patron’s questions and shows how he works through it to find the resources (this time on the web) and the answer the patron was looking for.

The other element I think would be topic specific pages built in wiki fashion on local topics (downtown development in Olympia, flooding in Lewis County). Reference librarians would maintain the resources and patrons could suggest resources a comment thread.
