Income Report – December

I try to share all of my income I’ve received over the last month. My additional income goes toward my dividend portfolio so the goal is to eventually have my dividends be the largest income each month. While I’m not there yet, I have had a great month! Even better than November ($61.19). My biggest income this month was my affiliate site #1 with $34.10.

In December, I have received $70.80 in additional income.

This month I made $5.72 from dividends. I love dividends, I didn’t have to do anything to earn this money. I just invested in the companies above and waited for the dividend check.

Since I’ve recently switched to a new bank with interest checking and higher interest savings I’ve been super happy with the results. This month alone I’ve made $1.58. To me this is incredible since that’s more money than my old bank ever made in a month. Got to love 1% interest savings account. Plus who doesn’t enjoy earning interest off their checking account?

My addition income came from my 2% cash back credit card ($29.40) which I use to make all my purchases so I get the cash back. As well as the websites I manage. Most ($34.10) of that was from my affiliate website #1 that I’ve been running for the last 2 years and a very small amount ($0.14) came from this website through adsense! That’s so great to see. That means someone is at least reading this site.

    You should share your affiliate site URL on your posts to build some link strength between your two sites. Have you considered starting another affiliate site? This seems like a good way to generate capital to invest.

      I agree Investment Hunting, hyperlinking it on here would boost the SE, but I worry about others competing in that niche. I’ve seen it happen on sites like Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income. However if I see alot of people asking about it, I’ll likely start including the URL in the income reports. I’m impressed you noticed it. =)

      I would love to start another affiliate site! I’ve done around 4 in the past and they are so fun to set up. I often find that I love designing, writing content and setting them up but often get bored with them. I believe Wallet Squirrel will be different since it’s more of a journal to how all of my additional income is doing and us Dividend Investors love keeping track of our additional income lol.

    Hey Andrew, nice looking site. I REALLY love when I came to your landing page and saw your total dividend portfolio and yearly and monthly dividend income jump up. Can you tell me how you did this? Was it a plug-in or?

    Aside from that, congratulations on jumping into the dividend investing world. You’re starting small, and that’s a good thing when capital can be put to risk like in the stock market. You’ve got some good companies there though, so keep up the good work!

    Talk to you soon,
    DB

    Right? Those are pretty cool. Yea they are a plug-in by one of my favorite WP developers Kriesi. The only thing is that I’ve found is they are built into his WP themes. If you’re WP savvy, I’m sure you can find a way to get it. His website is http://www.kriesi.at/ or you can find him like I did on Themeforest.

    Thank you for the kind words about the site though Dividend Beginner. Lol my portfolio is definitely small, but it should be a solid example to some just starting off on how to start from nothing. Have a great week!
