The last time I wrote a milestones article, I had just crossed half million page views. I posted the article (number 370 on DivGro) on 17 July 2016. Today's article is number 500 and I'm closing in on 850,000 page views!

Page views and number of articles are nice numbers to track and I'm happy to celebrate milestones, but DivGro is about generating a reliable and growing dividend income stream and I'm much more interested in seeing how DivGro's projected annual dividend income increases over time.

As with all these milestone articles, I hope to encourage other dividend growth investment (DGI) bloggers and to help this wonderful community go from strength to strength!

I posted my first DivGro article on 10 January 2013. After blogging for a little more than 1,600 days, I've reached the 500 article milestone! I'm averaging an article every 3.2 days and almost 10 articles per month...

Here are some of DivGro's page view (pv) milestones since I reached the half million pv milestone:

 17 July 2016
 average since inception: 387 pv's  
 5 May 2017
 average since inception: 505 pv's
 13 November 2016
 average since inception: 425 pv's  
 2 June 2017
 average since inception: 516 pv's  
 3 February 2017
 average since inception: 469 pv's 

In the past month or so, DivGro averaged about 1,300 pv's per day.

As for the most popular articles, here are the top 10 by pv's:
  1. Tracking Your DGI Portfolio – 8,789 pv's to date (published 20 June 2014)
  2. Popular Dividend Growth Stocks – 3,893 pv's to date (published 24 February 2014)
  3. Baxter Spins-Off Baxalta – 1,829 pv's to date (published 15 July 2015)
  4. Blogroll Page Reorganized – 1,780 pv's to date (published 29 November 2015)

  10. Recent Buy: VNR  – 1,507 pv's to date (published 21 October 2013)
I now have 93 articles with at least 1,000 pv's each.

My article, Tracking Your DGI Portfolio, is by far the most popular one on DivGro.

My Seeking Alpha articles have generated nearly 690,000 pv's. These do not include so-called mobile pv's, which Seeking Alpha do not count in their compensation scheme. I've published 215 articles at Seeking Alpha, 141 of which are exclusive articles. My most popular article on Seeking Alpha has generated 27,370 pv's so far. At the time of writing this article, I have 4,149 followers on Seeking Alpha.

Please visit my profile page on Seeking Alpha for a list of my published articles.

Looking at my goals for 2017, I'm progressing nicely towards achieving my goal of earning $12,960 in dividend income this year. So far, I've recorded dividend income totaling $6,522 or 50.3% of my 2017 dividend income goal.

My projected annual dividend income (PADI) goal for 2017 is $14,400. After a big boost in May, DivGro's PADI jumped to $14,684, which takes care of my 2017 PADI goal! Perhaps I should revisit that goal and set a new, higher bar...

Finally, I've set a new goal for 2017, namely to earn $8,400 in options income. At the end of May, I've secured options income totaling $7,232 or 86.1% of my 2017 goal. With more than half of the year to go, I need to revisit that goal as well!

Thanks for reading and for your continued support!
