Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

Wow! what a month. I scored five hundred+ in total passive dividend Income: $568.92 to be precise, this is my second time crossing $500.00 milestone figure this year.  Passive dividend income hit a record and it was more than 111% compared to last year’s Dec quarter. Also, this month alone, my passive income was more than whole of 2013. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine.

    1. Hi Sharon,

      Great to have achieved 2015 target and in fact, surpassing it. Wish you a Happy New year as well. Hope with these new buys, we will have a bigger snowball rolling in 2016 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and your wishes.

    1. Hi IH,

      Yeah. Crossing $500 was a milestone for me and I’m sure for all DGI bloggers. It was exciting to have finally crossed this hurdle and look forward to 2016. Good luck to you hunting in 2016. Energy companies are really beaten including CVX, COP & XOM, however, I’m already heavy on them. We’ll see what opportunities come up.

  2. Awesome job getting well above $500 for the month and to think your December total was more than your whole 2013. The power of long term dividend growth. The results are very, very real which is fun and exciting to track. Thanks for sharing and look forward to following your 2016 journey.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      True. Thinking that passive income in one month is more than whole year of few years back, is mind-boggling. This is awesome growth and shows power of DGI investing. The results are amazing and real. You are doing great over there as well and congrats on crossing $500.

      Thanks for stopping as always and commenting.

    1. Hi ADD,

      Appreciate the kind words. I’m glad to have achieved my target for 2015. It is motivating to watch paychecks come in our bank account one by one without going to office or doing any work. This is the true power of financial independence that we want to acquire. We need to be at it and over time, snowball will grow and roll at an increasing speed. We may relax then and sip some coffee in our backyard or beach 🙂
