“Another year, another chance” May 13, 2014

The wait is over. The Big Blog Exchange (BBE), the world’s biggest blog exchange competition, is back!

It’s a new year and a new chance to be one of 16 bloggers swapping places, blogs and lives simultaneously IRL. From experiencing street art in Montreal to tango dancing in Buenos Aires, last year’s bloggers trekked, tasted and triumphed their way around the world. This year Hostelling International is doing it all over again.

In 2013, the Big Blog Exchange, run by Hostelling International, involved 1,173 great bloggers from 173 countries worldwide and received fantastic recognition from the Travel industry with three prestigious awards – Innovation in Tourism by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Best Marketing Innovation campaign by the World Youth Student and Educational Travel Confederation and the British Youth Travel Awards for Best Marketing.

So, whether you’ve just set up your blog or it’s been around for ten years. Whether you have one million readers or just the one. Whether you blog about politics, global warming, travel, fashion, beauty or even cupcakes! Wherever you live, whatever language you blog in... Hostelling International is looking for 16 passionate and adventurous bloggers to make the Big Blog Exchange 2014 an amazing experience all over again.
