The dividend growth community and personal finance online communities are unlike any other community out there. We support each other, share our advice, help each other through difficult decisions with major implications, and encourage each other to be the best we can be and improve our lives each and every day. Each month, the two of us summarize and aggregate as many stories and dividend income stories as we can into a monthly summary to show the progress that each of us are making. Each story is unique and we are all at different stops along our journey towards financial freedom, and that’s what we love best. Now it is time to check out our September dividend income summary from YOU the bloggers.
Dividends 4 Future – $386.66 – D4S posting the monthly update before the end of the month. I love it! But hey, I guess I would be very eager to post my update if I had a 700% increase! Are you kidding? Amazing stuff D4S.

BHP Billiton (BBL) definitely came through this time around for you and for everyone who still owns them (as I, Lanny, hold them as well!). Looking forward to consistent $2K from you very soon, keep doing you.
Passive Income Dude – $735.00 – Stellar amount, no doubt, and those Vanguard funds shipped their quarterly dividends your way! Also, your other activities are very inspiring and your chart on the narrowing the gap is quite impressive. Keep it up!
Dividend Lord – $204.12 – Almost a 30% growth – do that every month, come on!! Pumped about your progress and leaping over the $200 mark. Keep being the “lord” over your portfolio, I want $300 by this time next year.

Time in the Market – $1,708.01 – WOW. Great figures and an impressive growth rate to boot. Also, nice increase to your “dividend (wage) per hour)” this period when compared to other periods. Making big moves and it goes to show, “time in the market” is helpful!
Div Vet – $489.24 – His engine is truly chugging on all cylinders! Over 40% growth is nothing to scoff at, instead, is something to applaud! Congratulations on the massive jump. Keep it up Vet!

Stashing Dutchman – $163.45 – Real solid income here and a 73% isn’t just an okay increase, it’s an incredible one. I set the challenge for you to have triple digit growth next year and I think you can do it. Also, you have some big time names in that portfolio, which should bode very well for you going forward!

Dividend Niche – $22.61 – Very solid and your engine is starting to rev here. The companies that you own, some are the Top 5 Foundation dividend stocks, such as JNJ, on your dividend payer list. Oh, and your 50% growth rate isn’t too bad either!
Dividend Hawk – $991.60 – 28% growth is awesome, and you have a very sweet spread, plus we share quite a few of the same names. Names such as, Intel (INTC), Pfizer (PFE), Emerson (EMR), Target (TGT), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and even T. Rowe (TROW). Keep it up!

One Share At a Time – $20.42 – There was one line in the article that jumped out. “I’m closing in on my 2017 goal a lot faster than I thought I would.” That is the amazing thing about what we are doing. You get motivated when you see results and push that much hard to get better. Great month One Share At a Time!
American Dividend Dream – $147.11 – Despite the fact that September is a slower month for ADD, it was impressive to see a three digit dividend income total. Now lets hope ADD adds one of the names from the watch list and keeps moving forward!

Investing Pursuits – $235.59 – Investing Pursuits was still able to manage a small increase despite receiving two dividend cuts in the last twelve months.
