Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID1, HID2, & Roth. I enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.
Wow! I scored a triple hundred plus in total passive dividend Income: $341.08 to be precise, this is the first time crossing $300.00 milestone figure. My dividend income was more than 26.61% as compared to last Dec and 299% compared to last year’s Mar. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being Financially Independent (FI) and living a life that I want to live, be independent and not have to rely on someone else.

I want to own securities of Blue chip Aristocrats (companies with 25+ yrs of growing earnings) and Dividend Champions. Once the earned passive dividend income covers all my expenses, I will own my time as well and truly free from 9 to 5 tread mill.
I’d setup a goal of earning $3500.00 in total passive dividend income at the beginning of this year and received $814.28 so far. This month of March is a big one for me and most of DGI bloggers as well. It covered some ground in the shortfall of last low month, that I’m glad to take. However, there is lot of more ground to cover to achieve a challenging target for this year.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
How did your Dividend Income do this month of March. Are you moving along the target?
Thanks for reading.
