Second annual Healthy Hearing blogger list
During the month of September, Healthy Hearing featured different bloggers in the hearing loss community. The following post contains a compiled list of each blog we highlighted.
Throughout the past month, Healthy Hearing has featured bloggers making an impact in the hearing loss community by sharing their own personal joys and struggles with others so that they might have someone to whom they can relate. Hearing loss, in all forms, is a scary thing to face on your own, and thanks to these writers, mothers, and organizations, those just embarking down the path of hearing loss don’t have to take those first steps alone. Advice and guidance, along with personality and humor, are just a couple clicks away. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our articles this month:
