As a New Year has begun many people are focusing on new beginnings, Deaf Insight has joined this as two of our bloggers leave to pursue other things in life. These two bloggers have each brought great things to Deaf Insight in their own creative ways.
Ditte Broen, The Quiet Photographer, was our Sunday blogger who has been with us since April 2012. She let us peak into the lens of her camera which brought such creativity and beauty to us each week. The blogs she wrote us contained such great stories and great adventures. You met so many stars, played parts in TV shows, and experience so many great things in your life. Through your pictures and blogs you have shown us so much talent you have and how you don't let your Deafness limit the things you do in your life. Ditte, thank you for everything you have shown us! I want to personally thank you for all your hard work and for being a part of Deaf Insight. You started with when it was still pretty new and we have grown so much since then. You have helped in that and I appreciate that with all my heart.
Jeffrey Swartz of The World of Silence, was our Tuesday blogger who has been with us since October 2012. As many of you know Jeffrey was new to the the world of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Jeffrey blogged his journey through his life of progressive hearing loss. He brought a different angle to Deaf Insight that many people all over the world endure. Jeffrey, thank you for allowing us to follow your journey as you learn to adapt to this new world you have entered as your learn new things and in turn teach your viewers. I want to personally thank you for taking the chance on Deaf Insight. You were unsure what you could really teach people since you were so knew to the world, but I feel you touched the lives of more people that you realize through the words that you wrote. A huge thank you to your Wife Karen for the wok she put into editing your work. She was a huge help! Best of luck in your and your family new journey in life and with your new cochlear implants! You have helped make a big impact with Deaf Insight in many ways and I also appreciate that with all my heart.
These blogs will be missed, but they can still be found in the Archived blog section if you would like to go back and read them or if you would like to still share information with your friends and family about these two great bloggers! As these two bloggers pursue their new beginnings of this new year Deaf Insight will be doing the same. We have chosen a Sunday blogger and they will be announced soon.
