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.
I scored more than double hundred in total passive dividend Income: $218.24 to be precise. This month alone, my dividend income was more than 22.03% compared to last Feb and out of park as compared to last May, over 400%. That’s awesome. 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.

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 for this year and have received total of $1335.40, 38.15% of target. I’m hoping my passive dividend income for next month would be blockbuster and cover some more ground to achieve target.
I’ve added few new names to my portfolios this year like BBL, T, KMI, OHI, RDS.B in DRIP account, DLR, JNJ, OKE, PM, SO in taxable account, WPC in Roth IRA. Total count of securities along with ETFs is getting closer to 50 right now.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
How did your Dividend Income come along the month of May. Closing in to target?
