My favourite Deaf/HOH related blogs!

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…

#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!

  1. Thank you for including us. This is such an honour! 🙂
    We have recently relaunched our website and blog, but all posts have been migrated – it is now mimi.io/blog, not blog.mimi.io. Would be extra grateful if you could relink our new blog page 🙂
    Thanks again!

  2. Thank you very much for including The Hearing Blog in your list, as we put in a lot of hard work researching articles; and sometimes we kick up a real storm when we break news.

    For example, our 3,000 word article on selecting a cochlear implant surgeon took over six months to research and send out for rounds of vetting. Yes, it rubbed a few professionals the wrong way; but it also broke news as it’s the first public discussion of the Cochlear Nucleus electrode array “spearing” the basilar membrane when the stylet is improperly used.
