Byte of Texas Scholarships Available

By August 7, 2014Events

A few weeks ago we announced the amazing speaker lineup for the Byte of Texas conference. Today we have some equally wonderful news — there are three full scholarships available for the conference!

Thanks to our partners at The Harvard Common Press and Bob’s Red Mill, we are able to offer three bloggers the opportunity to network, learn, and grow their blogs at the Byte of Texas Conference free of charge. Scholarship winners will receive full conference admission, valued at $199. This will include access to all keynotes, meals, and networking events at the Byte of Texas Conference.

Additionally, these three scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a few Byte of Texas experts.

  • Adam Salomone, The Harvard Common Press
  • Melissa Skorpil, Skorpil Photography
  • Lindsay Robison, Whole Foods Market

Whether you are a beginning blogger, writing a book, or looking to grow your blog’s income, the advice and expertise of these speakers will be invaluable.
