Finally, a dividend update! Some of you thought I had thrown in the towel due to the lack of updates here, but nothing could be further from the truth. Financial independence through dividend growth investing remains one of my main goals even though I may take a detour once in a while.
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.
