Blogging about hearing loss

In the United States, hearing loss to some extent affects 20 percent of the overall population, or 48 million people. On average, therefore, one out of every five people you encounter will have hearing loss.

For those of you who sincerely want to understand the condition—or that deal with hearing loss themselves and would like some personal perspective—there’s no better resource than learning from those currently living with diminished hearing.

Below is our list of the best personal blogs on life with hearing loss.
