This was mentioned Saturday on the Link Roundup, but I wanted to highlight it a bit more prominently. Last week I set up an account on a site called User Voice, which allows you, the user, to suggest topics for me to write about here on Seattle Bubble.
A few of you already pulled up the site over the weekend and suggested some ideas—thank you! Here are the ideas with the most votes so far:
A new segment called “Should I stay and Pay or Should I walk away?” – by Ray
People can write in their true horror stories and we can comment
A comparison of foreclosure rates against different percent downpayment and debt-income ratios – by Jeremy Vining
Provide analysis and discussion of responsible %downpayment and debt-income ratios, grounded in heavy comparisons of historical foreclosure rates against % downpayment and debt-income ratios.
Start a tax revolt – by Anonymous
Start a voter initiative to limit real estate taxes to 1% of value, reduced to 0.5% after someone has paid for 15 years.
Not sure that the third idea is quite within Seattle Bubble’s scope, but I’m really digging most of the suggestions so far—keep them coming!
I’ve added a “submit ideas” button to the bottom-right of the site that you can click on any time you have an idea for a new post, or you can visit the main User Voice page. Either way, I hope that this will result in better, more interesting content.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
