The beginning of every month is exciting for all dividend income investors as we look back at the previous month and see how much passive dividend income our portfolios generated. No doubt, these are the best posts to write and read online as it only provides further proof that dividend investing can work over time and that anyone can create an ever growing passive income stream (even with those nasty dividend cuts that come our way every now and then; thank you General Electric (NYSE:GE)). Looking back at my November totals, I see that my year-over-year progress is still moving at a nice clip and I look forward to calculating my 2018 totals in a few weeks. With that being said, let's take a look back at my November 2018 dividend income.

Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $401.25, up from $313.78, an increase of 27.9% from November of last year.

Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $251.50, up from $216.27, an increase of 16.3% from this time last year.

Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $177.23, up from $152.19 from this time last year. An increase of 16.5%.

Grand total for the month of November: $829.98, an increase of 21.7% from November 2017.

I have to say I'm quite pleased with my November totals. Who would complain about a 21.7% year-over-year increase? The proof of our dividend investing strategy rests in these real results. After all, dividends don't lie. It's real cash being returned to investors. With patience and consistency, these results and better can be achieved. Just remember, sometimes investing with blinders on can be beneficial as it blocks out the constant noise we are bombarded with on a daily basis and keeps you focused on the job at hand which is to keep investing, not falling for market timing traps, diversifying, not getting shaken out of the market when it tumbles and just creating a solid, ever growing passive income stream.
