If you're reading this blog, that means you're pretty Web savvy, right? And it also mean you know that Houston Press is also very Web savvy. We've done feature stories on The Twitterverse, covered heartwarming Internet tales like The Bloggess saves Christmas and pursued a myriad of odd criminal exploits on Facebook.
We know our local internet community. Which is why we're inviting you to the first-ever Houston Web Awards, June 30 at Momentum Audi. We'll be giving away a bunch of awards in a variety of categories, from Best Neighborhood Blog and Best Political Blog to Best Use of Facebook to Promote A Personal Brand. Our special guest is Fat Tony, who'll also be performing, and the girls from Houston Roller Derby and the High Tech Texan himself, Michael Garfield, are presenting awards. There will be booze, food sampling, and lots of hi-jinx courtesy of yours truly, and tickets are on sale now.
We want all of you to come, so today we're offering a special Deal of the Day -- $15 for tickets to the Houston Web Awards. We're selling a limited number, but that's a great price for a chance to mingle and network with some of Houston's top web luminaries. And us. Can't forget us.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
