March 2014 Dividend Update

March 2014 is in the books and was another nice month for dividend income.  It is nice to see the real numbers hitting the account  Progress shows that the plan is working and anyone can do it even with a small work salary.  Every little amount helps us become closer to achieving our goals and buys blocks of time towards FI.  That way we can pursue and find things that are more important and worthy of our time besides full time work.  Some people love their jobs and I think that is great.  Others are mistreated and underappreciated for the work they perform and I applaud them for taking the path of investing to get some of their time back.

  1. Almost $600 for the first quarter, pretty sweet to see grow and snowball! Keep it up!

    1. Writing2Reality,

      Almost $600 is a pretty good quarter for me right now. I hope I can continue making steady progress! Some people are well ahead of me and inspiring others at the same time. Most of us have to start with nothing and build it up.

      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!

  2. Swan,

    This looks like an all time high for you, congratulations on the record month! Every time you beat that record you buy yourself more time which in the end is the most valuable commodity we all have. Keep up the great work, you are an inspiration.

    1. Dividendasaur,

      Yes, I believe owning your own time or at least not having to be at the whim of someone else's orders if you choose not to is the ultimate status of freedom/success. I am glad you understand that and get it. Several people I talk to do not know what it is like or are jealous. I'm thinking about posting something soon about that when I get some time.

  3. Nice dividend payout. Celebrate each benchmark and you'll look back and be glad you're holding yourself accountable.

    1. Charles,

      Thank you! I am happy that my totals have been increasing drastically from a couple years ago. Nice to see progress early on, but it's still a looong road and I still got so much more to go. I plan to stay motivated and focused until the end when I can honestly say I am satisfied and comfortable if all I had was dividend payouts. Does not mean I will retire forever from any work, but want the option in case I do want to.

  4. Thanks to share this valuable information here as it is very important to check dividend payout before investing in any UK dividend stocks.
