Weekly Roundup - July 30, 2016
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
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!
