Hello, my name is Jackie Knight and I am not a journalist, a columnist or a writer. I am just someone who understands little of the English writing rules, but love writing. I need to stress something before you read my blog posts. So you could understand where I am coming from: I am a deaf woman who thinks and talk in BSL (British Sign Language).

Writing my thoughts onto this blog, into my version of ‘written’ English is hard. But I can only come far to where only deaf people will understand what I am saying.

This is my blog written in a language only deaf people will understand and I hope you will do too by saying. Ah yes, I know what you mean!

I like writing and I won’t let anyone stop me, so let me waffle on, throw up rants and share it with you!
