I have had several requests about this from readers over the last few months. Many of you wanted a place to have discussions about p2p lending that were outside the confines of the comments section of a blog post. So, today I am launching the Social Lending Network forum.
My intention with this forum is to make it a community gathering place for everyone who is interested in p2p lending. It will be a place where anyone can go and start a conversation or contribute to an existing conversation. I hope it will become a valuable resource that encourages sharing so we can all learn more.
Now, I realize there are other forums out there. I have talked about the Prospers.org forum before. There is also the Wiseclerk forum which is more focused on p2p lending in Europe and even Ken from Lendstats has recently started a forum. So there is no shortage of places to go now to discuss p2p lending but of course I hope you will consider signing up at the Social Lending Network forum.
If you are a new investor or borrower then I encourage you to join the conversation. You can learn a great deal by listening and asking questions. I encourage everyone to go on over to the forum right now and introduce yourself or start a conversation. I look forward to seeing you there.
