New Page! "Portfolio Progress"

But first, a humorous graph highlighting the many emotions 'regular' investors go through: 

We dividend growth investors avoid all these headaches though! 

"How so?" you may ask.  

By choosing high quality, dividend growing companies and holding them throughout the ups and downs....ie (most of the time) holding them forever! 

If you'll notice, you start at 'optimism', and if you "cut out the middle" and avoid frantically following the daily market swings and gyrations you end again with..optimism. 

Anyway, back to the point of this post.  There have been many benefit's to the launching of DividendPartisan back in January 2011.  First, I am extremely grateful for the encouragement I have received throughout these initial months and would like to start by saying thank you to all who have read and commented on the site.

Another particular blessing - since the site's launch I have become much more diligent in monitoring and evaluating my portfolio's performance.  I do not believe I was negligent beforehand, but DividendPartisan has afforded me the opportunity to actively and purposefully assess my portfolio's strengths and weaknesses on a continual basis that I did not do before.

Furthermore, I feel I have done my best to be candid to my readers in all aspects of my portfolio: my purchases, my sales, it's performance, etc.

In an effort to continue to openly share the direction of my portfolio and my personal journey of developing passive income to show God's love and financially assist many worthy causes around the world, I have decided to add a "Portfolio Progress" Page that will highlight the details of my portfolio's dividends progression over the years.

See the growth of my Dividend Portfolio since 2010 here or by clicking on the 'Portfolio Progress' page above.

That's all for now.  Thank you again for reading,
