Being an Airbnb host has been a great thing for me. Because I work for myself out of my house I'm able to host people on a regular basis. This is beneficial for a few reasons: 1) it's additional income 2) it's a way for me to connect with strangers, and to "show off" my city and neighborhood 3) per #2, I think this is an exceptional way to introduce foreigners to our country. Thanks for hearing me out and supporting Airbnb and the sharing economy! Best, Andrew Wicklund Seattle, WA
