December 2015 Dividend Update

2015 was another great year for dividend and income investors. I really enjoyed interacting and following many of the fellow bloggers in the community. Many people reached their goals. I fell short of goal 1 and will not finish my degree until 2016 due to the lack of availability of desired electives in my program. School and the cost of tuition has been a main factor on why goal #2 was not achieved. School has gone pretty well and I have been invited to join the school I attend chapter of Delta Mu Delta. I will have come short of my $2800 goal for dividend income in 2015. Goal #3, I started the process of using Adsense and looked at possibly doing freelance writing in the future to try and monetize my blog. I look forward to 2016 and making my goals soon and continuing #4. Goal #4 was about learning and trying to encourage all of you. Other bloggers and readers.

  1. Happy New Year!

    Wow, you have many great names here. I love your SWAN methods. It's great to sleep well at night tune out all the noises and focus on dividends.

    Best of luck for you in 2016!

    1. vivianne,

      Happy New Year to you as well! December is one of the nice months of the year where the dividends start to accumulate. I like that you have a well diversified and rounded portfolio of rental properties and dividend stocks.

      Congrats and I look forward to seeing your continued success in 2016!

  2. December was a good month for you and me both. Congrats on a pretty good year Swan.

  3. DFG,

    You seem to be doing great with only the one income and the amount of family you are supporting. I hope 2016's progress will be even better for our goals.

    Thanks for stopping by!
