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.

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.
