Roundup of Social Lending News – January 7, 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.

I have been offline most of this week as I traveled to Sydney, Australia (my home town) and took a few days off. I am actually going to be blogging from Sydney for the next six months. But due to wonders of modern technology you will likely notice no difference – I am even keeping my same Denver phone number while I am in Sydney. Anyway, I am back in the saddle now and I have some interesting content planned for you this month. Here are the major news items of the last week. Have a good weekend.
