To start your own Missionary blog, you will need to go to a website that helps people create blogs and publish them to the Internet. LDS.org suggests the following websites to start your own blog: blogger.com, wordpress.com, and tumblr.com.
In the October 2010 General Conference, Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shared the following success story about sharing the gospel online:
"Now in this day of the Internet, there are new and exciting ways you can do missionary work. You can invite friends and neighbors to visit the new mormon.org Web site. If you have blogs and online social networks, you could link your sites to mormon.org. And there you can create your own personal profile. Each profile includes an expression of belief, an experience, and a testimony. Because this is a new feature, most of these profiles are available in English. Profiles in other languages will follow."
You might want to have a talk with your Missionary on how he or she feels about having an online Blog. If you choose to have a 'Public' blog everyone can see it or you could have a 'Private' blog where only those you choose to allow can see it.This is a totally personal choice and I don't feel that either way is right or wrong and neither should you. I have seen many Blogs that use the Missionary emails as a tool to do further Missionary work.
