Blogroll

Last updated: 27 March 2019

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.

Public portfolios are 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.

    #1.  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 also 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.  
        #2.  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! 
        #3.  The Dividend Guy • Jul '05
        #4.  Dividend Diplomats • May '14
        • Bert and Lanny are the Dividend Diplomats, two dividend growth investors who together blog about investing, frugality, passive income, and financial freedom. Check out their Top 5 Lists! Unsurprisingly, the Dividend Diplomats also publish on Seeking Alpha where they regularly post stock analysis articles and a monthly series on Expected Dividend Increases.
        #5. Dividend Growth Stocks • Apr '11
        #6. Dividend Growth Investor • Jan '08
        • The blog of one of the founding members of The DIV-Net, a prolific writer! With nearly 1,800 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, but he's still going strong!
        #7. 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.

            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!

        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.

        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!

          ReplyDelete
          Replies
          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!
