Dividend Seedling – $11.82 – Think about this.  Seedling’s August 2016 total was $1.63. So think about that growth rate.  You said it best in your article, “Life is good.”  Keep planting those seedlings!

    • Agreed. A round of applause is well deserved for each of the bloggers in the list and all of those that we were not able to include. September is going to be a GREAT month and we cannot wait to start the next article 🙂


  1. That’s a nice range of numbers there – some people just starting off and others nearing the end of their race towards FIRE. It’s good to see everyone continuing to grow and can’t wait to see what September has to offer for everyone!

    • TITM,

      You hit on one of my favorite parts of the article. We love seeing and reading about each person’s journey, whether they are at the beginning of their dividend investing career or on the doorstep of financial freedom. Each new dividend, each growth rate serves as amazing motivation and helps me push myself towards the end game. September, with all of the mutual funds, should be one heck of a month to follow.

      Take care,


  2. This list keeps getting longer every month. Thank you for the inclusion. Not sure if this is new, but I like the part about the number of bloggers and how much we all collected. Can show growth as a community as a whole moving forward same as individually. Feel free to take that idea as long as you keep me on every report haha. Thanks for sharing the list. Great job everyone. Can’t wait to see the numbers for this month!

    • Dividend Daze,

      We were happy to include you. Thanks for the kind words. I’ll be honest with you, the kudos goes to Lanny for the first addition of the summary. I agree with you, I love seeing the totals and what we were able to accomplish as a community.

      I like the idea and it is definitely something to consider going forward. Don’t worry, we will make sure to include you regardless of whether or not we can pull together the right data for the statistic!


    • Gremlin,

      Glad we are able to put it together. Kudos to all of you for crushing it this month and providing us with all of these great summaries! It sounds like you are going to have a GREAT October and I cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve.


    • Brian,

      Thank you very much! We are glad you enjoy reading the summaries as much as we enjoy putting them together. I agree, everyone needs to keep on doing a great job and continue to replicate this success!


  3. This list just keeps on growing. And amazing that we all collected over 15.000 dollar (and some euros) in dividend this past month!

    btw: noticed there was no link added to Catfish Wizard.

    • Divnomics!

      Isn’t it crazy that we all receive $15k+ as a collective unit? It is crazy to think that we all passively earned that much money.

      Thanks for letting us know about Catfish’s link. We should be good to go now. Cheers


    • PCI,

      Sorry to keep you waiting for so long. We had a lot of summaries to go through haha Impressive is an understatement, that’s for sure. The best part is that this was an “off” month. Cannot WAIT to see the collective amount we are going to receive as a community in September. Thanks for the comment!


  4. Hey Lanny and Bert,

    i can only repeat myself: thanks for all the inspiring work you put into this list. Congrats to everyone out there in the DGI Community. Keep pushing the last quarter of 2017!!

    I definitely have to go back into a saving mode after my short trip to NewYork City. Although i managed to spend about 140 $ less than my budget, flying over to NYC from Germany is not cheap. But worth every cent.

    If you have the time you can check out my relating blog post:


    • Dividend Solutions,

      Thank you very much. That’s kind of you to say. I’m excited to stop by and read about your trip to NYC. There is nothing wrong with dropping your savings rate to take a trip that you have always wanted to. Hopefully you were able to use the capital to generate some lifelong memories!


    • Doug,

      There area ton of great blogs out there, couldn’t agree more. Just think. That is only $15k for ONE MONTH. Think about the amount we as a community will receive in September and December, the heavy dividend and mutual fund distribution months.

      Take care,


    • love the quotations around “work” and the irony. This is truly passive income and we didn’t lift a finger to earn it. Let’s keep pushing and keep on working our way towards FIRE by doing everything we can to increase this passive income cash flow stream and watch the number continue to grow from $15k.

      Take care!


  5. Wow! That’s great to see. Too bad I didn’t get my report out because I’d have pushed it over $16k. Considering how strong of a month September is I would be expect $20k easily if not well above that for the month.

    • JC –

      Damn! Could have used yours, no doubt man! But I know you are getting back into the swing of it all. September is going to be scary, the sheer amount of divvies we are all going to post is going to be hilarious. Thanks for stopping by and checking it all out!!


  6. Awesome report as always. These posts are great because I can get a glimpse at what the community is doing all on a single page. Actually, what i like to do is visit each blogger’s page one-by-one and check it out. It’s a great way to meet other bloggers and learn about all the good stuff they are blogging about. So, this is definitely one of my favorite posts of the month.

    • DP –

      Appreciate the stop by to check out the list. Exactly, great way to share stories, journeys, websites and the like. Also – great to see the large a** numbers being posted too! Can’t wait to compile September’s!


    • ED –

      Glad you are loving it. List is solid and hoping it continues to grow each and every month. We wish we can grab all articles that are out there, as well, sometimes it’s hard, but striving to be better each month! September should be quite the story.
