Are bloggers able to obtain a press pass?

Bloggers are subject to the same press registration process as all other media, and registration will be judged individually and based upon the credibility of the blog itself. Bloggers must have covered technology topics for a minimum of three months with a consistent posting rate (at least 1 post a week). If you do not receive a complimentary press pass, you will still be able to finalize your registration with an online payment.
