How do you use a blog to do One on One evangelism?
- After writing your post each week, use the blog to begin/participate in conversations, frequently inviting others to read your blog.
“Hey, I was writing about something like that on my blog the other day. You should go and check it out.”
- Send emails to friends, neighbors and co-workers inviting them to read and or subscribe to your blog. It is always best to ask before you send them a link.
“Can I email you a link to my blog. I would really like to hear your thoughts on what I wrote about?”
- Import your blog posts into your notes on Facebook.
- Follow up with your readers with questions and conversations about the material.
“Did you get a chance to read my blog?”
“What did you think about ____________?”
- Respond accordingly to comments made on your blog posts both online and face to face. Ignoring a positive or negative comment on your blog could cause you to loose respect and the interest of your readers.
- Thank people for reading and commenting on your blog.
- Ask people if they would be willing to study/discuss the Bible with you.
“Can I buy you a cup of coffee and we can sit down and continue our conversation over ___________ (whatever you have been discussing about your blog)? Bring your Bible and have a study with them. With their consent, it would also be cool to pray with them.
Your blog posts are not meant to be a comprehensive evangelistic effort in and of themselves. One on one interaction and followup with people is necessary.
