Prosper Lending Review - the year in review

Happy birthday to Prosper Lending Review! We have been blogging for over a year now. In June 2007 my brother Matt told me about Prosper, a P2P lending site, that he had been funding loans on for about a year. I was immediately intrigued. On June 15, 2006 we launched Prosper Lending Review – a blog about the P2P lending marketplace with a focus on Prosper lenders.

Since then we have watched Lending Club grow, GlobeFunder launch, Virgin Money purchase Circle Lending, Zopa move to the U.S. and Fynanz launch. We expect to see Loanio launch soon and keep watching Canada to see if CommunityLend or IOU Central will open their doors. It's an exciting time for P2P lending and we are happy to be part of it.

Here's a look back at the past year. These are the most popular articles on the site as measured by the number of unique visitors.

These are the top 10 referring blogs and forums over the past year.
