Every weekday for the last two months, we’ve been publishing at least one photo of San Diego’s crumbling sidewalks on our blog The Stumblr. We’ve already had great success in getting some of the sidewalk problems fixed. One senior citizen, for instance, told us she can now walk to her neighborhood grocery store without fear of falling.
Now sending us sidewalk photos is even easier. We’ve partnered with SeeClickFix, a national website that tracks sidewalk, pothole and other infrastructure issues all over the country.
Any time you submit a sidewalk photo in the city of San Diego through SeeClickFix, you can opt to route it to us for The Stumblr.
You can use SeeClickFix on its website (seeclickfix.com/san-diego). We’re listed under “Category.”
Or download a mobile app to submit from your cell phone. We’re listed under “Issue Title.”
Besides SeeClickFix, you can submit sidewalk photos directly to us in a few ways:
• Directly from The Stumblr by clicking “Submit a Post.”
• Via Twitter. Flag it to @TheStumblr.
• You can also simply send an email with your photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whichever way you send it, make sure to include your full, real name and where the photo was taken in the format of: “100 block of Main Street.” That will allow us to continue mapping the city’s sidewalk problems.
