January Dividend Income

I have collected $38.20 in dividend income so far this year!  This month I received income from SIX different sources. This is fewer than December, but I expected January to be a slow month. Compared to 2016 my dividends in January increased by 674.85%.  This is purely due to me not investing in dividend stocks at the beginning of last year when I earned only $4.93. Clearly, my slow but steady buying throughout the year has transformed my portfolio over this short period of time.  It is definitely not yet where I want it to be, but I know I’m on the right track.  There is a new investment paying out a dividend to me this month and it is no other than REITs from my Fundrise Account.  This allows me to invest in real estate and diversify further while earning a solid return.  I hope to eventually write a short blog post about my experience with it and how I am doing.  Thus far, I have received dividends from it in two quarters.  The next quarter will be the first time I receive my full dividend allotment as I have held some of its REITS for only a short period of time.
