Joseph’s Dividends: August

With several of my holdings showing no sign of recovery, and feeling inspired to be more selective with my choices, in August I made some large adjustments to my dividend portfolio.

In my M1 Finance account, I had one pie that was made up of several Global X ETF’s. They were higher yield, but as the ETF’s themselves didn’t seem to be as well established, they didn’t bounce back with the rest of the market over the summer. I decided to cut my losses on them and move the money to more reliable dividend earners.

The other major change I made was moving several REIT’s from Dividend Stocks pie to my REIT specific pie. It wasn’t a change that necessarily had to happen, but it’s one of those little things that makes my brain happier.

Now, on to the dividend earnings report!

2020: August

I knew having a baby would change things, and one of the most obvious things to change is the amount of time I have to write blog posts. As much as I love producing content for Dividend Brothers, it falls pretty low on my list of weekly priorities. To be fair my trading has slowed down quite a bit as well, so I don’t have as much to write about every week either. All that to say, I’m changing the publishing schedule of my trade updates from weekly to monthly. This is a change that I’m quite sure will largely go unnoticed by most.

So in the future, the good readers of DividendBrothers.com can expect a monthly dividend update, a monthly trading update, and an occasional extra blog post (like my most recent one on Cryptocurrencies.)

How To Earn Free Cryptocurrency

Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those blog posts or articles. This is a little side project I’ve been working on alongside my trading and dividend investing. I wanted to share this with anyone who, like me, has an interest in cryptocurrencies but wasn’t sure if they wanted to commit their hard-earned cash to it yet. I will say right up front, this will probably not make you rich. However, you truly can earn free cryptocurrency without investing a single penny of your own money. I have over $35 in my Coinbase account and I haven’t linked it to my bank or funded it in any way. Here’s how!

Joseph’s Dividends: July

This will be short and sweet as I only have a few minutes while my newborn son is napping with his mother.

As, much as I would like to see every month outperform the prior year, I know I haven’t been working a consistent enough strategy to see that yet. However, thanks to the inspiration of the Dividend Diplomats, I have been making an effort to add more individual dividend stocks to my M1 portfolio. While I prefer monthly payers, I realize I also need to just focus on adding good performers. With enough of them, the monthly payouts will be solid anyway.

2020: Week 27 & 28

My wife gave birth to our son on July 4th! Since then I’ve been overwhelmed by happiness, diapers, and sleep deprivation. My weekly updates will probably be a little more sporadic in the coming months. They will definitely be shorter.

I’ve been doing pretty good at reaching my goal of realizing 1% profit every week. My trading account has been hovering around $700, so I’m shooting to earn $7 by every Friday. I honestly, didn’t do much during Week 27, and what I did do, I have almost no memory of, so this is mostly going to be about Week 28.
