  1. That is a lot of “free” money the community pulled in in June! Congrats to all.
    We also had a new record last month with well over €880 income.

    • Agree complete Stefan – I should look back to the same post from June 2016 and see how well the names are progressing along. That would be a fun activity just to get a pulse on the actual growth rate realized in the community.


  2. They all were on fire. I see a lot of great results.
    I also had a great month. The last month of evry quarter is always nice 😀
    I see only one Dutch input. Next month one extra? 😜

    Thanks for summary!



  3. Loe seeing all those dividends do their work. And thanks for including us again 🙂
    The list is getting bigger and bigger, small and large, great motivator for all!

    • Of course Divnomics. Agree, these are all real life examples and real dollars that show the power of dividend investing. I love it and it motivates me every single day to keep on moving along.


  4. Hey DD,

    thanks for all the work you put into that list! – and a special tx for adding me, it’s an honor to be on your list.
    Congrats to all the bloggers out there. The results are awesome and it won’t be long until we see the four digit figures more regularly.


    • Of course Dividend Solutions, we are happy to put this list together every month. The results are inspiring and we love monitoring and seeing each individuals growth. I especially love how we interact with bloggers at all stages of their journey!


  5. Great list! Assuming these dividends are usually across all accounts the bloggers have i.e. taxable + tax deferred. I track my own dividends but only in my taxable and rothIRA (about projected $7K/year now). I feel like my 401K divs are not really to be considered for early retirement… and I am not tracking those. Others relate or should I track all?

    • Hey Fab,

      I think you should track every dollar of income you make, whether it is in a regular brokerage account, an IRA, 401k, etc. The timing of when you access the funds should not discredit the annual income stream you are producing!


  6. I always look forward to reading this post. It’s become one of my favorite posts of the month. I love seeing how great the DGI community is doing. It’s very exciting and motivating to see so many bloggers breaking records and showing year-to-year increases. Looking forward to next month’s post DD.

    • Glad you enjoy the post! We love putting it together and seeing how well everyone is doing on a monthly basis. Agree – it is motivating as heck and it gets me excited to start investing once again.

      Take care!


  7. Look at how much our community has grown. Many new blogs listed in this round up which is a testament to this investing strategy. Thanks for the DivHut mention and congrats to all listed. We brought in a pretty impressive amount between our portfolios.

    • Divhut,

      Much like our dividend income streams, our community continues to grow and get larger. More and more people are sharing their journeys and looking to inspire others in the community. That’s what this is all about, right? Next time we will have to remember to include Baby Divhut as well!


  8. Nice list 🙂 My div income was 263€ for Q2. Some stagnation due to my Baltic companies irregular payouts but still some increase compared to 2016 Q2 218€ income. Thats a nice +20% 🙂 Since im investing in US stock starting from this year divident income shoul become more stable.

    • Ou and DD maybe you should list in decreasing order by income. Also put yourself in the list 😉 Its nice to compare yourself. Humans like to compeat, thats one of the reasons we build a civilization 😀

      • Even with stagnation, that’s a heck of a growth rate P2035. Better yet, imagine the growth rate in the months ahead when the Baltic companies do decide to pay. We have put ourselves on the list in the past, but have left ourselves off recently since we have already published an article on the website. We’ve also discussed putting them in order, but it is less about competing on the list than showing everyone’s progress and celebrating their accomplishments on an individual basis. But we will definitely discuss it!


  9. Although I turned from dividend growth investor & value investor to GARP (Growth At Reasonable Price) about a year ago, I still believe that purchasing solid dividend growers will beat the markets over time.
    I may switch back later when I retire and need consistent dividend income to live but for now I think GARP investing fits me better. Thanks for the post. Love to see lots of people utilizing a solid strategy!

    • I’ll have to stop by and read more about GARP and seeing how well the strategy is working for you. The beauty is each investor has their own style and finding what works best for you is what is important. Feel free to reply with some links to your best articles about the strategy.


  10. Thank you for sharing this wrap up for June! Lots of new names on the list which is great. Always interesting to see how DGI portfolios are building impressive compound growth.

  11. Thanks for the include diplomats! I swear this list gets longer and longer, good job spreading the word and getting more people involved.

    • Of course! Keep on crushing it, and keep on inspiring others to start this journey and share their stories with us. I love how many new dividend bloggers there are out there and you are absolutely right, the list continues to grow and grow and grow!


    • Tawcan –

      No problem and no doubt. Different levels, when dissecting each individual, can also cover different % portions of one’s expenses, you know? It’s so weird thinking how “personal” each journey is. Great results across the board and Tawcan – you continue to keep doing you and it’s working over there, that’s for sure, $1,300 is insane!


    • Of course DIS – If you aren’t first, you’re last. kidding, kidding. Congrats on the great progress you are making and it is sure as heck fun to watch everyone else in the community continue to grow.


  12. Amazing, inspiring post! Great to see how many DYI DGI’s are out there earning big bucks every month. Quarter-ending months are fun, and we often see new records. I had one in June, earning more than $2k for the first time 🙂

    FerdiS, DivGro

    • Holy cow Ferdi! I would say that is one heck of a record right there. over two grand…are you kidding me?? Nice job and that is exactly why I love the final month of each quarter. Thanks for stopping by!


  13. Always a very inspirational list. New records being broken all the time, especially on quarter ending months. Lots of people so close to breaking that $1k mark too. Still plenty of time left in the year to hit more milestones. Great work everyone.

    • Agreed – seeing the records gets me excited and has me motivated to knock this out of the park and pour as much money as I can into the market. Now that you mention it, it was interesting to see that there were so many people on the cusp of reaching $1,000. Didn’t realize before, but it is an interesting trend.

      Take care!


  14. Wow! Look at all the fellow dividend bloggers sharing their success! I also had a great month of June for dividends! Congrats to everyone and thank you Dividend Diplomats for sharing!
