Each month, the dividend blogging community continues to impress the two of us. Some people are breaking records, some people are posting triple digit growth rates, and some bloggers are beginning their journey towards financial freedom. Each blogger has their own journey, story, and method for accumulating a dividend income stream and it is a blast to watch and read about. March’s summary was filled with great stories, and we are even more excited to see how the community built off of their successes in the first month of the second quarter. Time to check out our April dividend income summary from YOU, the bloggers!

Adam @ IWTRS – $81.79 – Some great dividend stocks paid Adam this summer. Adam has some cash to deploy and sounds hungry/motivated to keep fueling his dividend growth rate!
Passive income Mavericks – $1,635.84 – A new record was set for PIM in April, and we cannot wait to see PIM continue to break through the high ceiling that was set this month. If April was this strong, imagine what figures June will produce. Exciting stuff to see during an “off” month.
Dividend Seedling -$1.80 – Planting the seeds for a strong dividend income stream in the future. Seedling may not have received a lot, but the foundation has to be built somewhere and we’re excited to see the results.
Earn Money in Pajamas – $14.96 – A nice 68% year over year increase for EMIP pushed the dividends received totals over $100 for the year. Nice work.

Time in the Market – $67.36 – A nice benefactor from Apple’s dividend increase that was announced at the beginning of May. TITM saw a drop off from March, which is expected with a fund driven portfolio. But a reference to additional purchases has us very excited for what June’s income report will report.
Man, are all of you exhausted from all the excitement as we are. This is one of our favorite articles to prepare because we get to see the progress/results from so many others out there (a majority of which are our followers). Seeing these results serve as HUGE motivation for us to continue pushing the limits and trying to CRUSH some of those infamous investing milestones that we set out sights on. We end this article the same way every month, with a rallying cry to remind all of us that EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR COUNTS in our journey towards financial freedom. Keep up the great work everyone!
