The dividend growth community continues to produce CRAZY results. In October, the community received over $18,000 in dividend income. Incredible results! One of our favorite activities each month is brewing a fresh pot of coffee, firing up our laptops, and reading the dividend income summaries posted by all of you in the dividend investing community. There is nothing more motivating than reading about your successes, watching you push yourselves, and grow as investors and people in your relentless pursuit of financial freedom! So each month, we try to aggregate as many of the journies as possible in one article so all of you can leave this article as motivated as we are. Now, it is time for the November edition of our dividend income summary of all of YOU the bloggers.
Dividends Are Coming – 61.11 (EUR) – A few solid names there! Hope that Kinder Morgan (KMI) maintains their business model, grows free cash flow and increases the dividend in 2018. Should bode well for all of us!
Dividend Dynasty – $747.31 – An “off” month for most of us is a killer month for you. Very big positions you have with those entities that paid you, however, they’ve all been around for quite some time and are dividend machines. Congrats!
Time in the Market – $107.44 – 4 straight months of over $100 and I know you are a lock-in for December. Great growth rates all across the board, as well. Further, I like how you are breaking it down by an hourly wage and even gave your portfolio an employee name, keep it going. Congrats and looking forward to seeing how your year finishes!
Dividend Portfolio – $62.11 – Congratulations on setting a record month! Also, you have quite a few dividend aristocrats in there, such as Procter Gamble (PG), AT&T (T), General Mills (GIS), Hormel (HRL); you’ve done a very good job. No stopping you now.
Captain Dividend – $407.97 – Another impressive month for Captain Dividend, led by receiving over $110 from AT&T. And guess what? That number will only continue to grow since you were able to purchase 33 more shares during the month. Holy cow CD!
Dividend Seedling – $10.98 – Seedling just crushed it when compared to November 2016, where DS posted $3.71 in dividend income. That is one impressive DGR!

Engineering Dividends – $442.33 – 10 companies delivered an impressive dividend sum for ED during November. Love the fact that four new companies paid ED a dividend and the fact that ED received dividend increases from 5 companies during the month. This added $94 to ED’s total forward dividend income…AMAZING!
Dividend Lord – $186.12 – So close to $200! Your growth rate is astounding and also enjoyed seeing the evenly spread of companies, even if you think Omega (OHI) had to big of a slice – I think it’s fairly spread out! 2018 is going to be amazing and keep doing what you’re doing.
A Frugal Family’s Journey – $168.11 – 9 companies paid AFFJ a very nice sum of cash this month. Like so many others, AT&T provided a HUGE dividend for them. Congrats!

Pursuit 2 Freedom – 59.03 (Euro) – Always fun to see another person with shares in Sabra (SBRA), owned them for some time and they’ve been very solid; plus – I’ve physically have seen their facilities too! The yield is fairly high, so that always keeps it interesting. I bet you’ve enjoyed quite the appreciation on Hormel (HRL) too, congrats!
Dividend Quest – $788.33 – We all wish we were this high Quest! Don’t worry about the one dividend not coming in until this December, it’ll just sweeten this pot up.

Excited to make one final push here in December to earn as much income as possible before the calendar returns ? I know we are.
