OMF Literature’s Bloggers MIBF Challenge!

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!

1> I grabbed my favorite book and went to have my picture taken like the “I Read” poster…

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!

This is actually the first activity I did for the challenge… and after completing this task, it gave me courage to do the rest of the other tasks. Ice breaker indeed!

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!
