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.

I completed two of my four courses for this summer so far and just started my second two. Have been working more than full time hours lately as well, but it has been a decent semester minus having a professor who was not exactly fair to say the least. Here is my dividend update for May 2018.

I am in my last couple weeks of the first 2 classes of the summer semester. I hope the next 2 classes are not as heavy as these have been, but I am getting closer to finishing at least. I still have to write a 12 page paper and do a lot of group work before my online Marketing can be finished. I hope everyone is doing great. I plan on attending Fincon in Orlando in September and look forward to catching up with some people and meeting new people passionate about dividends, investments, and personal finance.

I've been very busy lately in school and work. Taking 4 classes this summer (2 in 6 weeks and 2 more in 6 weeks) but hopefully I get through it with decent grades and move closer to getting my MBA next year. I have fallen behind a couple months and thought I would update my dividends for March tonight.

We are almost all the way through March and I am now updating my February dividends. Life has been busy in 2018 working a lot of overtime and juggling 2 jobs and school. Thankfully, my second job should be coming to a close next week so I can focus on other things.

We are already well through February and I have not updated everyone on my January dividends. The stock market continues to go higher over time which makes it harder to find value in some dividend producing securities. Hopefully 2018 will be better to us and with the tax cuts for people working maybe we can have a little more to invest.

We are off to a new year and it is time to tally up 2017 dividends. December finished off a strong year of dividend payments. It turns out it is my highest amount yet and I exceeded the $2800 goal I have been shooting for. I closed the year with $3,010.57 in dividend income within my traditional brokerage accounts. Many bloggers have been doing very well and I look forward to continuing to receive dividends and chatting with all of you in 2018!
