DivHut Turns Two

Time waits for no one as we can all attest to that fact every time we post our monthly dividend income results and marvel at how fast each year goes by. I can hardly believe that it has been two full years since I started blogging at DivHut and began sharing my real world portfolio with you (and now baby DivHut too). I think the greatest benefit I have received from starting my own blog is the fact that I am more intimately tied to my portfolio and its holdings and performance. Prior to chronicling each buy and potential buy along with dividend income, I rarely looked at my portfolio holdings. At best, I logged on once a month as many of my buys were automated and I simply reinvested every dividend received. I think that by blogging and sharing my journey with others it really forced me to become very familiar with my current holdings and it constantly reminded me as to whether or not I was headed in the right financial direction I saw fit with proper risk tolerances as well. I feel very appreciative to be a part of our online community and to be able to share my personal portfolio and investing experiences while also being granted to ability to peer into other like minded investors’ portfolios and see their investing thought processes.

 

I am continually amazed at the support, advice and transparency among our community. I plan to continue sharing my real world portfolios with you on DivHut as well as continue to do overviews of different dividend paying sectors that might otherwise be overlooked. I want to thank everyone who has visited and commented on DivHut during the last year. Without you DivHut would not be possible as I continually receive inspiration from your comments, questions and your own blog posts that I read on a daily basis. With that being said let’s take a look at my annual DivHut blog stats comparing year one and year two.

 

Year One

Sessions                             Users                                  Pageviews

52,305                                 20,594                                112,456

 

Year Two

Sessions                            Users                                   Pageviews

73,454                                31,252                                 139,274

 

The numbers above just prove to me that DivHut would not be possible without any of you and for that I thank you. I’m happy to see those numbers above without making any comparisons to other blogs that exist. I’ll simply let these numbers stand alone and give me my own metric to compare DivHut’s third year stats to. Here’s to all of us continuing on our own FI journey and may we continue to receive inspiration from one another.

    • Hi JC,

      Thank you for your continued support. There’s no doubt that the act of simply writing blog posts frequently almost forces you to become more aware of your holdings, which is a good thing in my opinion. As always, I appreciate the comment.

    • Hi DB,

      I appreciate your kind words and support. I know it sounds cliché, but time really does fly by. Soon you will hit your anniversary. Just keep writing, commenting and sharing your real world experiences and you’ll have a good chance of creating the financial future you seek. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi DG,

      Thank you for the “birthday” wishes 🙂 I have to say that writing for this blog has been a fun experience and I really value the comments and input from my readers. The transparency of our community still amazes me as in the past financial topics were never discussed let alone shared with the public. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi Josh,

      Wow! Thank you for the compliment. I’m happy to be a source of financial inspiration and hope you gain value by following along my real world dividend portfolios. When I write my “sector specific” dividend posts I am to highlight that finding solid long term dividend payers doesn’t have to be difficult. We are literally surrounded by the products and services of many of the companies in our portfolios. You just have to know where to look. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

  1. Congrats Keith. Keep it up! Thanks for sharing your journey with us and it’s always a pleasure visiting you bud.
    We only have 1 way to go and that’s up so let’s keep hustling and make our lives better and better.
    Cheers to our success.

    • Hi DH,

      Thank you for your continued support and investing inspiration as well. We literally have dozens of real world portfolios to follow and learn from on our FI journeys which I think is great. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi DG,

      Thank you for your kind words. As with year one and two, I plan to continue writing and sharing into year three. As always, I appreciate the comment.

  2. Great numbers!
    140K views are amazing!! It just shows you have great contents and a lot of hard work into hustling!
    I myself seeing double digit increase this year also.

    Cheers!

    • Hi vivianne,

      Those numbers just highlight that many more people visit DivHut than comment, which is fine. It means I actually have a readership out there which is a very satisfying feeling. I guess you just have to keep writing and sharing and people will respond in kind. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi DFG,

      Thank you for the well wishes. Baby DivHut is doing great. I still can’t believe he’s over one. Talk about time flying. I know what you mean about teething mode. Our little one is still teething, of course, and on occasion we have those all nighters when he just will not fall asleep. Between myself and the Mrs. there’s always some quiet time to write. For me it’s usually when they are both asleep, like now 🙂 I don’t mind. It’s all a temporary stage and as long as we remain healthy and happy everything will work out. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi ARB,

      Funny, the terrible two’s. Well, I hope I don’t succumb to writers block during this age. I don’t think I will. I feel happy and excited to share my real world portfolios and ideas and always appreciate reading the comments from my followers. Thank you for your continued support and, of course, comments!

    • Hi Tawcan,

      Thank you for your kind words and support. I’m happy to have achieved this milestone without feeling burnout. Hope things are well on your side with T2.0. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi Jack,

      You said it. Reaching higher milestones with views and readership is definitely exciting but watching the milestones of your own child is that much better. Thank you for your kind wishes and comment.

    • Hi ambertree,

      Thank you for your continued support. The plan is to continue with more updates and other dividend related posts into year three and beyond. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi dividenddesi,

      I appreciate your first comment here and for following along my journey. Thank you for your continued support and I hope to read more of your comments in the future.

    • Hi D4s,

      Thank you for your kind words. I have been a dividend investor since 2007 which is why it may feel longer, but blogging since 2014. I do wish I started sharing my journey earlier but better late than never. I appreciate your comment.

  3. Happy 2nd Birthday DH!

    Congrats on the two year anniversary and looking forward to many more!
    It’s great that your blog has not only helped the community as a whole but has helped you with your investing directly.

    Best wishes,

    • Hi DL,

      Thank you for the well wishes and support. Like you, I am looking forward to many more years of sharing my real world journey as well as following and learning from other financial journeys I read online. As you stated, there is an almost symbiotic relationship between what my blog has offered others online and by default what that same blog offered me in terms of my investment decisions. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

    • Hi DM,

      Thank you for your kind words. It’s my pleasure to share my real world portfolio with you. I hope my site can continue to provide inspiration to all. I appreciate your comment.

  4. When I first read the title I thought Baby Divhut had turned 2.

    Congrats on 2 years of impressive success. Creating something from scratch and seeing it grow is a great achievement. Well done, Keith. Here’s to another 2 years (or maybe 20, like IH said 🙂 )

      Baby DivHut is still one. Let’s not rush things too fast. I like having a baby in the house. Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
