Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
We had two detailed p2p lending portfolio updates this week from established bloggers, Investor Junkie and Nickel Steamroller. They shared details about their returns from Lending Club and Prosper and both bloggers continue to do very well. We welcome a new blogger this week to the weekly news roundup, Prosper to Retire, who shares his experience as a Prosper investor since 2008. Finally, I want to toot my own horn briefly. An article this week in Business Insider included yours truly in the list of 15 money experts everyone should follow on Twitter. Enjoy your weekend.
