Weekly Roundup - July 30, 2016

Weekly Roundup filled with some of the best articles on dividend growth investing, stock analyses, personal finance and financial independence from the past week.
Happy Weekend!  Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.
3 weeks.  In just about 12 hours our daughter will be 3 weeks old.  It's hard to believe that she's already been here this long.  Things have been going a little bit better with her now that we're spacing out her nighttime feeds and only waking her up if she sleeps for 5 hours over night.  It's really helping out my wife for getting sleep, although it does make her a bit more fussy/hungry in the mornings.  *My daughter, not my wife.


Other than dealing with our daughter it was a pretty quiet week.  We aren't exactly living it up right now and the markets aren't offering anything compelling.  Although there were 2 dividend raises for my holdings this week which is always a good thing.

Also special thanks are owed to Bryan of Income Surfer for a guest post this week! 

The Devil's Financial Dictionary by Jason Zweig (affiliate link) is a nice little time killer that gives brutally honest and often humorous definitions of different finance and investing terminology.

Today's word/definition is:
"Volatility, n. - The extent to which an investment's short-term returns differ from its long-term average returns, technically known as standard deviation and colloquially known as 'Oh my God!'"
On to the Roundup

In case you missed them, here's the posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit over the past week.

Once again I'd like to say thanks to each and every one of you that read, commented, and shared posts from here this past week.  I think this dividend growth investing and financial independence community is amazing and the openness from everyone is awesome.  Thanks again!

  1. Completely understand what's going on with the little one. Ours is only 1mo and sleep is quite the commodity!

    1. PID,

      Sleep is definitely a rare commodity and I can't wait for her to get older and start sleeping through the night.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Div4Son,

      It'll be a busy weekend of sitting around the house with the little one. Although there's honestly no place I'd rather be.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Bryan,

      She's finally settling into a groove which is good because it's really helping with our sanity a bit. A bit of good news bad news is that it looks like she might be able to sleep through the night once she's old enough because she sleeps really well so far. Bad news though is that she doesn't seem to like to sleep much during the day. She just cat naps 30 mins or so and then she's wide awake!

      Thanks for stopping by!
