Hi Michele, great post...I'll pass it onto the folks doing the "Facilitating Online 2010" course:http://wikieducator.org/Facilitating_Online

You have listed a number of things you can use a blog for...how does facilitation fit into this picture or is "facilitation" a broad term to decribe all these functions you have listed?

Thanks Sarah! Great point on facilitation!

I think you could use facilitation as a broad term for all of these functions because when you play these roles and people interact with you, you're essentially facilitating a discussion. When I was thinking these ideas through, I was thinking of a new blogger wondering how to enter the space, so I admit that facilitation wasn't on my mind. I tend to see that as something that happens over time with experience and the growth of an audience. Definitely a more complicated role.

Nice post. One way to also get into blogging is to start first as a commenter on others' blogs. Your Social Media spiral is still applicable.

Hey Britt--good point. Commenting is definitely one of the best ways to get your feet wet. And also a great way to get conversations started that you can continue on your blog.

excellent post, thanks!

Thanks, Sean!

Michele: So glad to read you again!

This is a wonderful post! Great way to find a starting place. Even if people don't choose to blog, these steps can be great when applied to Facebook, Twitter, linkedin, etc.

I especially like the "work in progress" mentality. A great way of putting your thoughts out there, and possibly getting some great responses, advice, etc.
