The final month of the year is usually a solid month for dividend growth investors and December 2018 was not any different across many of the bloggers reports recently published. Mine was a record total for any month in my taxable brokerage accounts I publish here.

Here is the last update I missed since getting behind several months over the summer and fall this year. It shaped up to be a not so bad month for income in November ahead of a December that should set a new monthly record in dividends for my portfolio.
October is normally a time where the weather starts to turn significantly colder here in Michigan. I was busy with school and work since the beginning of the summer and things finally slowed down some for me to update on these past months. Just because the weather gets cold does not mean the dividends should be frozen over. The portfolio continues to generate some decent income on a monthly basis. It has been hard to grow it as the debt from school is of high interest at the same time and needs to be paid off sooner than later.

September tends to be one of the 4 biggest months for dividend income due to the payout schedule of most well known quarterly dividend paying companies. I expect March, June, September, and December dividend totals to continually increase and outperform the other months in growth.
I got well behind in dividend updates between school and work. I have not been as active and commenting as I like to, but the dividends have not stopped working for us in the dividend community. I look forward to catching up now on the updates to date.

I am a little less than 3 weeks away of completing my second half classes this summer and looking forward to the end of them. It has been busy both with working OT and taking a full load of classes all summer long. Here is my dividend update for June 2018.
