When I joined the OMF Literature Bloggers MIBF Challenge yesterday at the Manila International Book Fair, I didn’t have a clue what was going to happen. When I saw the list of things that needs to be done – I thought I wouldn’t be able to do some of them. I thought I wasn’t brave enough. You see, I am naturally a shy person and some of the activities are just out of my comfort zone!
Nonetheless, with God’s help, I was able to complete my list!
but I think my kids did better! 🙂
2> Walk up to a complete stranger and recommend a book for them to buy!
Now this took a lot of guts. I looked around the store and choose a person who seemed to be looking for something. I approached her and told her that I am doing this for a blogger challenge and that I will be recommending a book for her. I asked her what book she is looking for and she said that she wants something about relationships.
So I recommended Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliot!
3> Take a video and talk about why you love reading!
4> Wear a silly hat, go to another booth and have a picture taken with a stranger!
5> Introduce myself by going up the stage, getting the mic and telling others about my blog.
6> Post something on social networks inviting others to the OMF booth at MIBF!
7> Get 3 people to sign the OMF Lit survey!
8> Interview 1 OMF Lit staff about the MIBF
I interviewed Angel Fernandez. She mentioned that she usually doesn’t interact with customers as she works in the main office as a marketing retail perosnnel. She mentioned that for the past 2 days she has been very blessed. Very tired – but blessed! She had fun interacting with the different customers!
Doing the different challenges was fun… I truly appreciate good books and enjoy them from OMF Literature! You want inspiration, instruction, insight? Do drop by the Manila International Book Fair, it runs until Sunday September 18!
