Weekly Roundup - July 5, 2014

My wife and I flew in to Nashville to see some friends of ours and man the change in weather alone is worth the trip.  Instead of 95+ with 90% humidity we're looking at some mid-80's temperatures.  Perfect weather to be outside.  I'm not really sure what all is in store for our time here but I know it's going to be awesome.  One thing I'm definitely looking forward to is the fireworks display on July 4th.  Back to the future right?  It's ranked the 2nd best in the nation and I can't wait to see it.  Other than that it's going to be relaxing and doing whatever we feel like doing.  Enjoy the time with family and friends this holiday weekend.

I didn't make any purchases this past week, although it was a holiday shortened week.  I came close to making a few buys but we got some good jobs report numbers and a much better mood from Mr. Market which quickly shot some companies away from my buy zones.  Oh well, eventually there will be other opportunities to add to great companies.  I did recently add to my position in both Procter & Gamble (Full Analysis Here) and Deere & Company which you can read about here if you're interested.  The really exciting thing was getting to tally up all of the dividends I received in June though.  I passed the $600 mark for the first time which was awesome.  It's amazing to see the dividends growth month after month.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by, commented, or shared posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week.  I've got one other thing to share with all of you because I definitely couldn't have done this without you.  This past week I crossed the 500k pageview mark.  It's amazing to look back at the growth in the pageviews and how they grow almost month after month.  So thanks again to all of you.

    Congrats on the $600 in dividend income and 500k pageviews. That's awesome, my friend.

    Enjoy Nashville. I was there for a 4th fireworks show a number of years ago and it was just awesome.

    Best wishes!

  4. JC,
    I hope you are having a good trip to Nashville. Enjoy the time off. Thanks for mentioning my piece. And I noticed you hit the 500k page views the other day. Next stop, 1 mil!

    90F here in Colorado, but it's always dry. It was a perfect 73F last night at the fireworks.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. PIP - thanks for sharing the roundup...there were a few that I had already read but also a few I hadn't read. By the way, congrats on 500K pageviews mark. I just started blogging a few months back and I'm curious to know how long it took you to reach your recent milestone.

    Wishing you continued success. AFFJ

  7. Hope you enjoyed your trip here to Nashville! I was at the Nashville Hot Chicken Festival, then a canoe trip down the Harpeth River and finally the fireworks. Loved your write up on Cracker Barrel... maybe you can squeeze in a review of another Nashville gem, Ryman Hospitality or one of our many heatlhcare companies?

  8. Congrats on your $600 mark passing. Have a great trip!

  9. Thanks for the mention, and congratulations on the milestone!

  10. $600 in dividends is definitely a portfolio that's gaining steam, congratulations!

  11. Congrats on the $600 in dividends! That is a great milestone.

    I am a recent convert to dividend investing. It changes your mindset from "how much is my portfolio worth" to "how much dividend income will my portfolio generate". It also relieves the stress of watching the market ups and downs. All you have to do is find quality companies that will grow dividends and be around for a long time.

    Thanks to this dividend community for sharing so openly. You are a terrific asset to my financial success!

  12. Thanks for the tagback.
    $600 in a month. Excellent work. It really does feel great to hit new highs doesnt it?

  13. Glad to know that you have a time to met your friends in Nashville! By the way,good job on your 600 in dividends!
