March 2015 Dividend Income Update
Ahh, the start of a new year and the first quarter over.  There were quite a few changes to my dividend portfolio, a lot of my dividend stocks triggered stop losses.  As you can see, I had $5600 in annual dividend income in the last update (December 2014) and now I have just over $5500. […]
December 2013 Dividend Income Update and Questrade IQ Essential Review
I thought it would be nice to end the year with a recap of my dividend income (and really, writing for this blog is helpful as it helps keep me accountable as to what is actually happening with my dividend income) for 2013.  In case you want a refresher, here was my dividend income update […]

I think it was the same wise friend who recommended that I read The Wealthy Barber, so […]
Youngandthrifty Dividend Income Update: November 2012
I am surprised how quickly the DRIP is adding the number of shares to HSE.TO and SLF.TO.  HSE.TO is doing quite well.  SLF.TO also produced a good report recently so I am glad to hear its picking up.  Here’s some more info on DRIPping dividends if you’re interested.  I don’t think I would DRIP my […]
Lessons Learned from Blogging
Now that I’ve “retired” from the blog owning business of things for a few months, I’d thought I’d share my thoughts. Everyone dreams to make it big while doing what they love, sharing their opinions, and being creative.  Blogging can be a great avenue for this.  As someone who was able to make four figures […]
