Roundup of Social Lending News – March 10, 2012

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.

There continues to be a lot of coverage of Zopa and the UK p2p lending market in general as the investment returns continue to be highlighted by the press there. We have plenty of other interesting reading this week with interesting articles by The Dollar Disciple and Nickel Steamroller. The Wealth Pilgrim provides a video walk through of his recent Prosper review and we also have a blogger doing his Lending Club taxes. Speaking of taxes I will be tackling mine this weekend and then writing a blog post next week detailing my experiences with that. Fun. Have a good weekend.
