The hustle and grind continues everyone! January and February were incredible months for dividend investors as a lot of companies decided to provide their shareholders with a nice dividend increase.

Here is the latest installment of our Dividend Income from YOU the Blogger’s series!

A Frugal Family’s Journey – $243.06 – 10 companies and a LOT of big one’s to boot. What’s impressive is that not one individually is massive, as AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) aren’t so significant like myself and others. Keep it up!
