Another month, another dividend income report! February flew by like it was nothing – it felt a couple of days short actually. Work was busy as always, I’ve been under the weather for a couple of days, and I experienced a ton of fun activities with friends. On top of that, a steady stream of dividends are slowly becoming a recurring part of my life. That’s why writing these posts are by far my favourite thing about keeping this blog.
December of last year marked the first month in which I reported my passive income through dividend growth investing. This month I’d like to continue that practice even though January traditionally is a slow dividend income month compared to big hitters like March and December. In doing so I hope to keep myself motivated and to inspire others.
A blog dedicated to financial independence through frugality and dividend growth investing without a monthly recap of dividends received is like a car without an engine. That’s why I’ve decided to start a monthly recurring series that logs and details the passive income performance of my portfolio. Hardly original with everyone and their dog in the dividend growth community doing the same thing, but I find it necessary for the sake of transparency.
Hallelujah! On Tuesday I received my very first dividend payment! From McDonald’s no less! Since I’m pretty excited about that, I’ll allow myself a one time use of a gif on this blog. Are you ready? Here it comes.
