It is that time of the month everyone! For the last few weeks, everyone in the dividend community has taken the time to post their stories and discuss their progress towards financial freedom. If you have followed our blog, you would know that we do our best to compile, share, and discuss as many of those stories and dividend income summaries as possible. While we wish we could include everyone, unfortunately, because of time (especially during our busy season) we cannot include the dividend income summaries for every single blogger out there. There just isn’t enough time. This month, we were able to compile 19 dividend income summaries, slightly less due to busy season (ARGH!!!)! So everyone, check it out. Here is our February Dividend Income Summary from YOU in the blogging community. ENJOY!
