Boom shakalaka! What a month December turned out to be to round off my first full year as a dividend growth investor. Because most of my holdings forward a piece of their profits in the last month of every quarter it felt like Christmas lasted an entire month. Jingle bells, indeed!
Oh boy, have I got a treat for you guys – a double dividend income update! Well, that’s not really a treat when considering you have all been waiting for over a month for October’s numbers. Even though I haven’t been active much in our financial independence community, my passive income in an antithetical way has been. Fresh and free-of-work cash has consistently hit my brokerage accounts like in the past.
No More Waffles lives! The past month I haven’t been active much because of work commitments, a general lack of writing pleasure and a short holiday, but I can’t stop publishing my passive income through dividend growth investing, now can I? Soon after launching this blog last year, I started sharing my dividend income to maintain my motivation, but also to inspire others to follow a similar journey.
Two readers sent me a worrying e-mail asking if I had dropped out of dividend growth investing due to the market turmoil of the past weeks. Their logic seemed reasonable since I hadn’t posted my dividend income for August yet and neither had I been particularly active. Their concerns laid to rest – thanks, guys – I decided to quickly write the long-overdue article on August’s dividends.
Every month I publish the passive income that I’ve received through dividend growth investing. As most of you guys know I do this to for two main reasons. On the one hand I hope that disclosing my progress to a wider audience keeps me both accountable and motivated, while on the other hand I also wish to inspire others to follow a similar journey.
