  1. Almost $300 in dividend income for June is really high. Keep up the good work. When did you start investing in dividend stocks? Look forward to your next month progress.

  2. Hey Keith, thanks for stopping by.

    The $288 for July should be the last time my monthly dividends are below $300. I just sold some of my previous mutual funds and invested it in some quality dividend growers. Have a look at the 'dividend income' and 'contributions' page for more details, you'll see quite a lot of purchases in the July column. This is why my forward average monthly income jumped up so much.

    I started investing in dividend growth stocks around June 2013, so I have been going at it for just over a year now. Before that I had some money in mutual funds, but the more I learned, the less I appreciated the 1% expense ratio. And I actually enjoy reading up on and researching individual companies.

    I will check out your progress too!
