It’s my favorite time of the month. I get to share my dividend income with the world. I have found that sharing my investment wins and losses is a great way to keep me focused on my end goal. I also enjoy visiting the dividend blogger community of sites and seeing how everyone has performed. This month, I hit a record monthly dividend income total. My total dividend income received in April 2015 was $324.45.
One of my 2015 goals is to surpass $1,500 in dividends. I have currently received $600.35 or 40% of the way towards my goal. I am on schedule to reach my goal. I purchased several stocks in March that will pay dividends over the next few months. These new stocks will take me well over the $1500 goal.
