This page contains links to dividend growth investing (DGI) blogs and other blogs focusing on passive income generation and the pursuit of financial independence.

If you have a blog not listed here, please feel free to nominate it for inclusion!

I highly value blogs that include a public portfolio. With public, I mean there is a page dedicated to the portfolio, showing (at least) a list of tickers, the number of shares per ticker, the value of each position, and the total portfolio value. Unfortunately, a list of tickers and percentages do not count.

Blogs with public portfolios are prominently displayed and are marked (and linked to) with this symbol:

Honor Roll Blogs

This section contains my favorite DGI blogs. Typically, these blogs have been active for several years and contain high quality or inspirational articles. For me, active means weekly posts, on average. High quality and inspirational are, of course, subjective.

#1. Dividend Growth Stocks • Apr '11
#2. Dividend Growth Investor • Jan '08
  • The blog of one of the founding members of The DIV-Net, a prolific writer! With more than 1,500 blog articles to date, the site provides stock analyses and articles about dividend growth investing, retirement planning, financial independence, and more. The author has hinted at not continuing with the blog beyond 2017.
#3. DennisMcCain • Aug '13
  • A truly beautiful, ad-free blog created by Dennis McCain, who combines dividend growth investing and options to boost income. Dennis and I share other interests, too: photography and hiking. His blog includes several excellent pages, including Best Ideas This Week and Dividend Increases. Also check out his Article Index page for an archive of all articles.  
#4.  A Frugal Family's Journey • Mar '14
  • A great blog by a Californian family striving to become financially independent. Because AFFJ shares so much detail about the family's financials, it truly feels like you're traveling along with them on their journey. Check out AFFJ's collections of Stock Analyses and Recent Buys —great resources for research and ideas. 
#5.  The Dividend Guy • Jul '05
#6. Passive Income Pursuit • Nov '11
  • JC of Passive Income Pursuit (PIP) writes amazing stock analysis articles, such as this one on PEP. I've learned a lot from his approach to stock valuation. We share an interest in options trading to boost dividend income. JC visits DivGro regularly and comments frequently. Check out PIP's Learning Center with lots of links to great online tools.  
#7. All About Interest • Mar '12
  • All About Interest (AAI) was one of the first commenters on my blog. His strategy to reach financial independence is through dividend growth and real estate investing. AAI's blogging has slowed down significantly as he works on getting a restaurant up and running. I really like AAI's easy writing style!
#8. Roadmap2Retire • Apr '13
  • Sabeel from Roadmap2Retire (R2R) is a software designer with a passion for personal finance and investing. He started investing in mutual funds in 2007, but learned that the "small" management fee recurs annually and snowballs into a significant charge over time. He rightfully calls mutual funds a scam. I like R2R's pragmatic approach to investing!
#9.  Investment Hunting • Dec'14
  • The newest blog on my honor roll is Investment Hunting, a great blog with cool-looking graphics. The author, Nathan, has experienced some ups and downs financially. Check out his wonderful Blogger Interview Series to learn about some of the bloggers that inspires him. We found out that we're practically neighbors in the San Francisco Bay Area!
#10. DivHut • Apr '14
  • Keith, the author of DivHut (DH), is an internet entrepreneur that focuses on dividend growth investing and passive income generation. His blog is relatively, new, but DH has investment records going back to 2007... so, in fact, he's a veteran dividend growth investor! Check out DH's portfolio – it is very impressive!

If you have a blog not listed here, please nominate it for inclusion in the comments section below!


  1. That's a very nice and exhausting list. I like that you are marking up those bloggers who are publishing their portfolio. It is an excellent idea. So keep the list up and running as I may refer to it in my future posts. Heck, I really like that idea!

    1. Yes, and it was very exhausting to compile it :-)

      I appreciate bloggers who share their portfolios publicly! I learn a lot by seeing what others do in their portfolios. So, they get extra recognition in my blogroll!

      Thanks for stopping by, Martin!

    2. You keep amazing me a lot with this page. It's almost like: "Who needs a blogroll, just go to FerdiS page and you have it there all!"
      Great resource.

    3. Thanks Martin -- soon, I'll have to spend some time updating the blogroll again... I've been too busy lately to keep it up-to-date.

  2. wow nice list. thanks for the add. I need to look at some of the others. Thanks!!

    1. Thanks, FFdividend -- and you're quite welcome! Take care!

  3. Thanks for adding DivHut to you blogroll. Much appreciated.

    1. You're welcome, DivHut, and, likewise, thanks for adding DivGro to yours! Take care!

    2. By the way I have a portfolio link too if you want to add it.

    3. Fixed -- sorry I missed that! You have a great-looking portfolio!

  4. Hey DivGro,

    I would love to be added to your blogpost as well. Thanks! Awesome graphs and charts. They really add a lot of information and something that I need to continue to work on with my own spreadsheets.


    1. Sure, Scott, I'll add your blog! Please add DivGro to TwoInvesting's blogroll, too. I had a quick look at your blog and I noticed some interesting ideas about spreadsheet magic that would be very useful for DivGro. Check out:

      if you haven't already.

    2. You are now added also.

      Just checked out that post...excellent description on how to use REGEXextract. I never had anyone explain it that well before.

      Also, my portfolio is public as well. You can find it under the Scott tab along the top. Thanks!

    3. Hey Scott, your portfolio is now linked! Take care and visit again soon...

  5. That's a great list DivGro! Thanks for adding Dividend Hawk to your blogroll. Btw. You don't find my portfolio, it should be public!
    Regards DH

    1. Hi DividendHawk -- thanks for the kind words and the heads-up. I've added a link to your portfolio... thanks for sharing it publicly!


  6. Wow there's a lot of blogs out there that I don't know about. Thanks for sharing and special thanks for adding me to the list!


    1. Hi CD -- yes, I was surprised when I started gathering the links. At some point, I had to call it -- I'm sure there are many more out there...

      Take care!

  7. thanks for the add buddy, added u as well

  8. Hi FerdiS,

    Thanks for adding me into your blogroll. Hopefully I'll be in the "at least a year old" blog list. I'm very curious on some of your stock selection criterias, I will ask you in due time. Hope you will share your insight.


    1. You're welcome, David! Stick around and continue to share your ideas and experiences! That's how we all learn... Please feel free to ask about anything you notice or question in my blog. I'll try my best to answer!


  9. H FerdiS,

    Thanks for adding my site to your list, I feel honored! I'm adding you to my blogroll too.

    Best wishes,

    1. You're welcome, DL! And thanks for returning the favor!

      Take care!

  10. Thank you for adding me to your blogroll! I do eventually plan on adding my portfolio, I just need extra time to work on pages while still getting posts out. Hasn't happened yet :).

    1. You're welcome, Kipp! Let me know when you do and I'll add a link to you're portfolio! Thanks for making contact...

      Take care!

    2. I got a portfolio page up now, granted sometimes things will show up as loading, not sure how to make it more consistent yet, looks fine on the google drive.

    3. Added a link to to your portfolio, Kipp!

      I don't know why it shows up as loading. I've seen it periodically, but lately things have been more smooth. Are you using the latest Google Sheets?

    4. I will have to check... I would have thought Google Sheets would update automatically being all online, but maybe not?

    5. I may depend on when you created the spreadsheet for the first time. I think new sheets use the latest version.

  11. Thanks for the add DivGro...appreciate your support.

  12. Thanks for including me in the blogroll. Great portfolio and great site by the way. There is lot of information including graphs and price histories... nicely maintained.

    1. Hi Dividend Growth Journey -- thanks for your kind words and I'm glad to include your blog!


  13. Oh hey DivGro, I just thought of a dividend investor blog not on your list! Surprising, isn't it?
    Living at Home:

    1. Thanks Kipp, for nominating Living at Home. I'm sure there are many more DGI blogs that I don't have in my blogroll. I'm adding it now...

  14. Thanks for adding me to the list. I like the public portfolio addition as well. This is a great list of some great blogs. I know I can't always keep track of them all.

    1. You're welcome, PIP -- Yes, it is hard to keep track of all the DGI blogs, especially the newer ones that have popped up. New blogs can become great blogs quickly; that's why I wanted to add some of the newer blogs to my blogroll...

  15. I would be honored to be added to your list. My website is named "Dividends, Derivatives and a Camera." You can find my articles at and I am currently part of the DIV-Net, SeekingAlpha, and you can occasionally find me in the headlines sections of Yahoo! Finance. Thanks for your consideration.

    Dennis McCain

    1. Hi Dennis!

      Thanks for stopping by... Of course I'll add your website -- had a quick look at it and we have at least 4 mutual interests: apart from the things listed in your website name, I also love hiking!

      Take care

  16. Thanks for including me. I appreciate the link.

  17. Hi Divgro,
    Nice list. I publish my portfolio too. I've been blogging and using dividend growth investing as my main strategy in order to reach early retirement.
    Keep going!

    1. Oups I meant I've been blogging since sept 2013 and using dividend growth investing as my main strategy since november 2013. I'm about to reach my first 1000$ in forward dividend income. This strategy is cool and efficient.

      Have a nice day

    2. Hi Allan -- Thanks for introducing yourself and your blog. Congratulations on reaching the $1,000 mark! I've added your blog to my blogroll. Looks like you've been an active blogger since April 2014, so you have a while to go before earning an entry in the special section :-). Keep up the good work and visit often!


    3. Thanks for the add. It's much appreciated! :)

    4. Of course! You're welcome...

  18. Divgro,

    Thank you for including us on your blogroll. We recently moved websites and our new web address is! Would you mind updating your link when you get a chance?

    ~The Dividend Diplomats

    1. Done! Thanks for letting me know about the change!

  19. Hi DivGro,

    Great list! Would love to be added if possible. Thanks

    1. Thanks for stopping by -- I've added your blog. Good luck!

  20. Awesome list (especially that my blog is the first one on the list! hahaha!). Seriously, It's interesting to see how the dividend blogger community has grown over the past few years! cheers,


    1. You've been at it longest, as far as I can tell :-)

      Thanks for commenting and being part of this interesting world of dividend blogging!

  21. DivGro,
    I am discovering your blog and lovin' it (certainly more than McDonald's :-))
    Can you consider adding my blog to the list?
    I have a public portfolio.

  22. (go to hell spell check ! Haha)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Long Term Investing and, of course, I'll add your blog to the list! Keep up the good work!

  23. Thanks FerdiS.
    Your blog is on my list as well.
    I really appreciate your content and posts...
    All the best to you.

    1. Thanks for adding DivGro to your blogroll -- Cheers!

  24. Hey DivGro - Any chance I can get added to your blogroll?

  25. Hi from Spain,

    Congratulations for your blog i read it al weeks.
    Can you put my blog in your list?
    is also about dividends but in spanish. The name is Dividend and Trading and if you wanna learn spanish and know about spanish shares is a good site to see.
    this is the link:

  26. There are a few blogs I follow daily and your is one of those. Thanks for your work. This quote above from the Dividend Guy---"It's interesting to see how the dividend blogger community has grown over the past few years!" is certainly true, but many on this blogroll stopped posting a while ago and should be removed so the community is not as large as it seems.

    I don't want to appear to be telling you how to run your blog, but I am interested in new thoughts and look to blogrolls for that. If many of the linked blogs are out-of-date, or not running it is frustrating.

    I skimmed most last night and I would say almost half of the second tier blogs have not posted in 2-3 months and about 15-20% of the first tier blogs are not functioning. Those should be eliminated in my opinion. If a blogger is not posting at least weekly, especially on this subject, they are not worth following. Certainly if they have not posted in a month they should be delisted.

    1. Point well taken, and I don't see your comment as telling me how to run my blog. I'll try to work on this soon. Perhaps a third tier of links identified as "stale" or "stalled"...

  27. Thanks for compiling the list. I was able to add tons of new feeds to my RSS reader

    1. You're most welcome, HackYourFinances! Good luck and happy investing...

  28. Hi DivGro,

    I would be honoured if you could include me in your blog! I have already included yours :-)

    1. I visited your blog and did not notice DivGro on your blogroll. Of course, the quid pro quo is not a requirement for listing a blog on my site. I've added yours.

      Welcome to the DGI community! Best of luck in your journey to financial independence.

    2. Hi

      Thank you for adding me. Unfortunatly I have had some issues with caching of my webiste, så the updated list didn't apear. You have been added as promised :-)

      Best Regards
      Dividend Freedom

  29. Dear DivGro!
    Thank you for sharing your portfolio. Gives a very practical insight into your real investment philosophy.
    Best regards

    1. Thanks EternalYield -- I had a quick look at your site. Looks great; hope you keep up with blogging!

      Take care

  30. Hey FerdiS,

    Nice blogroll here... Quite a list! I just added you to mine! ;)


    1. Thanks, Adam -- and I've added yours to mine. Take care!

  31. Hi I like your Blog. I have one not sure I fit in. called .. 1 question What determines which stocks are included in your new purchases. If there I missed it. Thanks Gerry I am very new to the Blog world.

    1. Hi Gerry -- I added your blog even though my focus is more on dividend growth investing than options trading. Best of luck!

  32. Hello DivGro

    Can you add me also to your blogroll?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sharon - Divorvcedff

    1. Added -- best of luck with your journey to financial freedom.

      Take care

  33. I'd like to nominate a new blog, Dividend Meter: . I'm documenting a real-life portfolio of dividend growth stocks and provide a step-by-step tutorial for creating a dividend tracking spreadsheet in Google Sheets.

    1. Added -- great tutorial that I'm sure will be very useful for dividend growth investors wanting to track their portfolios! I like the meter and might just use it to visualize my goals progress for 2016!

      Take care!

  34. Hey DivGro!
    Me and my brother are a new dividend growth website and it might be cool to follow us from the very beginnings. (we're 18 years old)
    Can you add us to your blogroll?

    1. Added -- you're in the best possible position to make this endeavor a fantastic success! It all depends if you will stick with it. Oh, how I wish I could have started at 18!


  35. I´d like to nominate one of the spanish reference blogs for dividends in Spain.

    1. Thanks for nominating! I've added the blog in the Active Blogs section.


  36. Please include my new blog, Thank you and Happy New Year!

    1. Done! Thanks for nominating your blog for inclusion in my blogroll!

      Take care,

  37. Hi!

    Could you add my new started economy blog to your blogroll please?

    Have a nice day!


    1. Hi LIMG -- I've added your blog! Best of luck with your dividend investment journey!

  38. Yo DivGro!
    Thanks for including Dividend Quest on your blog roll! I've added DivGro to my site's blog roll page. Keep on investing and growing that snowball!
    - John

    1. Hi John -- thanks for adding me to your blog roll page. This is a great community and I love seeing what others are doing. You learn a lot that way!


  39. Hi DivGro!

    Been following your blog for a while, also the articles you post on SeekingAlpha. We've had some interactions on there as well, where I post as "JayWright" and the "Blue Devil" of Duke University is my avatar.

    Would greatly appreciate it if my blog could be included here! We would fall under the new list, as my wife and I have been at it for less than a year!

    Look forward to hearing back from you!

    1. Thanks for the interactions -- I remember your comments as JayWright on SeekingAlpha.

      I've added your blog to the blog roll. Happy investing!

    2. Thank you so much! I wish you much success ahead and I'll be checking in for new articles.

  40. Hi DivGro,

    I'm new to your blog. I found it after reading your interview at investment hunting. Great interview by the way.

    This is an incredible blog roll.

    1. Thanks so much for visiting, Data Lore, and for your nice comment about the interview.

      I see you just started investing.. I hope you find my blog useful as a learning tool -- I've read a lot of blogs to learn about dividend growth investing! All the best!

  41. Hey Divgro, I have a new blog for consideration at - Hope to stay in touch. Thanks so much for sharing, Greg

    1. Thanks for visiting, Greg -- I've added your site.

  42. Hey there FerdiS, I hope you are well.

    Take this for what it is worth---You already know I do not have a blog, and you already know I consider your blog the best DGI source (outside SA) that is available. This is also the best blogroll I have ever seen, and I use it a lot to hunt down new ideas.

    That said, I offer my humble opinions for improvement as I have done in the past.

    Suggestion - Group blogs by portfolio value rather than age (started blogging). The reason I say this is because I notice as my DGI portfolio grows, my interests, criteria, and perspective changes. I am sure that might happen to all of us. I don't necessarily care when the blog was established, I care what the blogger is dealing with at the present.

    My portfolio is now $170K, so naturally I am interested in bloggers who have been at it for a while and are at the same or HIGHER value than me (like you, PIP, AAI, DivHut). Those are my Go-to blogs.

    This would also give the up-and-coming (new) blogs a chance to ascend the ranks as they invest. I have found a few "new blogs" but they have large portfolios. For these types, I value their investing age rather than their blog creation age.

    I also think anyone showing a "portfolio" but does not show a market value of that portfolio should not get your # sign for displaying a portfolio. We can’t be expected to add the market value of 30-90 stocks to get the value of the portfolio. Make them show totals. I am not talking about return or cost basis v. value, I understand we seek increasing income not capital gain, but they should show the total value. That way we can determine if they might be aligned with our own story.

    Dividend Mantra needs to be laid to rest. The last post there was "foods of the presidential candidates". Come on, that site is dead, as are a few others. Why keep them on the list?

    In my mind, if you are not posting regularly on this topic you are not relevant. The market is fluid. Dormant blogs may have some good information, that is true, but any information would need to be revalidated as to today’s conditions. I just don’t see keeping dormant blogs on the list. There are too many new blogs that can take their place.

    Anyway, I have said my piece. I think this is the best DGI blog there is. All new bloggers should check in with FerdiS, but I would like a clean-up of the blogroll. Peace!

    1. Mike A -- Good to hear from you again!

      Thanks for your suggestions. As they say, I'll take them "under advisement" :-)

      1. I don't thing grouping by something that's dynamic (like portfolio value) is practical. Changes not under my control will quickly outdate the grouping and make it less than useful. And, certainly, I don't want to spend more than the one day a quarter-or-so to freshened up the blogroll. I'd rather spend time writing good investment articles.

      2. I like your idea of not having # link to portfolio's without values and totals. Next time I refresh the blogroll, I'll implement this idea.

      3. I don't want to play the judgement game as far as blogs like Dividend Mantra is concerned. I think there is still very useful information in the archives of that blog that new bloggers may find useful. You will note, though, that Dividend Mantra no longer appears in my top 10 list.

      4. Some bloggers take time off, then return and become active again. The reason I have the dormant section is precisely because even dormant blogs may contain good and (even timeless) information.

      While my blogroll may be comprehensive, I can't afford spending too much time maintaining it. My update frequency is quarterly for a comprehensive pass, and as-and-when bloggers ask to be added.

      Thanks again for your challenging suggestions and your continued support!

  43. You da man. I didn't really think about the practical side of updating the values and I understand about the maintenance time. Thanks for hearing me out. Great site, my favorite.

    1. Appreciate your inputs, Mike A! And thanks for the kind words.

  44. Hey FerdiS--It would be good if you could put these sites in the dormant area. Its hard to wade thru everything as it is, but these site are not posting. I checked your blogroll tonight looking for new ideas and just kept a list.
