Before I started blogging, I only knew very few Deaf/HOH related blogs and ever since this and my Twitter page started, it opened a whole new door for me! After weeks of reading through blogs, posting on Facebook and Twitter, I have finally shortlisted my top ’20’ Deaf/HOH related blogs! Hope you’ll find something of interest to read.
So, I went from all these lovely blogs…
…To my final 20!
#1 – Limping Chicken
My favourite place to check out all the latest deaf news and blogs, it’s the ‘most popular deaf blog in the world’!
#2 – Charlie Swinbourne
Deaf Journalist, Scriptwriter and Photographer… this blog is a fantastic insight into his life and I’m loving his award-winning short film! Have you seen it?
#3 – Deaf Expressions
Although this blog is written in relation to ASL, it’s humorous and engaging! I can relate to a lot of things that Michele writes about. My favourite post would have to be: “How can I appreciate you, if you won’t go away!”
#4 – Phonak Open Ears (Now ‘Hearing Like Me’)
A variety of interesting blog posts in relation to Phonak Technologies and Deaf people’s personal stories! Totally worth a read!
#5 – Goldy’s Deaf Girl Blog
A personal blog from a deaf girl. For those of you who are in need of advice, sympathy and laughter, here’s the place to read!
#6 – Deafinitely Girly
A blog buzzing with reviews, personal stories and deaf related humour, it’s ‘deafinitely’ worth a look!
#7 – Life of a Thinker
Written by Liam, a deaf guy who has a love for literature and music, did I mention; he’s writing a book?!
#8 – A Deaf Boy in a Loud World
Very descriptive, beautifully written blogs about deafness… great for literature lovers out there!
Poems, literature and a love for science fiction, DeafFirefly is a bilingual deaf poet… lots of fascinating posts on here!
#10 – The Hearing Blog
For all things technical and engineering based, relating to deafness… full of reviews and guest articles. A great blog for advice on different options available for Deaf/HOH people.
#11 – Living with Hearing Loss
I quite like this blog, as it offers a personal insight into everyday problems and achievements whilst living with a hearing loss. Some of the posts are truly inspiring.
#12 – Liz’s Deaf Blog
This blog is a great one to read for those of you interested in the current issues relating to deafness.
#13 – Mimi Blog
#14 – Tubetastic Pimps
For me, this business is the ‘coolest’ thing I’ve seen happen to deaf technology! From stickers for your cochlear implant, to charms for hearing aids… this should be a new fashion trend! This blog posts lots of updates, so be sure to check them out!
#15 – Hearing Loss Friendly’s Blog
Another great business… since before last week, I’d never heard of ‘hearing loss friendly holidays’! This is brilliant as it gives Deaf/HOH people a chance to travel to places just like hearing people… but with brilliant deaf friendly accommodation and tour guides. I’d recommend this if you’re looking for a summer holiday this year!
#16 – Hear Better With Hearing Loss
The official blog for the author, Katherine Bouton. She’s published two books relating to hearing loss, and without doubt are worth a read!
#17 – Hearing Like Me
This community blog provides many articles relating to deafness, along with a forum if you’re interested in meeting people just like you!
#18 – C I Circle
For those of you interested in Cochlear Implants, particularly parents… this blog is full of activity! You never know what you might find!
#19 – Speak Up Librarian
A personal blog, in the life of a librarian! Not a quiet one though! Lots of advice on here too.
#20 – Making Deaf Children Matter
Last of all, this blog; written by Ian, who works for NDCS. As a deaf adult himself, he’s passionate about campaigning for deafness. If you’re interested in this kind of thing, here’s the place to look!
Hope you enjoyed this, and found a new blog of interest to you! I’d love to hear any more Deaf/HOH related blogs that you like, please contact me!
