The above was just an example of SignWriting that I use every day. A little about myself. I was born Deaf into a Deaf and Hearing family, so I have a native skill level in both ASL and English. When the ASL request become accepted, I will definitely be writing ASL articles as well as doing translation of articles.

My blog is mostly written in ASL by using the SignWriting Image Server (SWIS) which is the basis for the SignWriting MediaWiki Plugin. This plugin will make it possible for the ASL Wikipedia. You can view my blog here to have an idea how it is used. I also make the SignWriting smaller since it feels more natural to have it that size. It is usually bigger for people who are just getting used to reading it much like children writing big when they first learn.
