One month down, eleven more to go. Not that I'm looking to rush 2019 but time has a way of slipping by without us really noticing and before you know it, the holidays and a New Year are upon us once again. Why not stay invested in the market and continue to make contributions throughout the year and take advantage of all that time whizzing by. Stay in the game no matter what the headlines read.

With February already underway, it is time for all dividend income investors to 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. With that being said, let's take a look back at my January 2019 totals.

What's not to like about these real world results? Even with a nasty GE cut in 2018 my dividend income still continued to grow because of fresh capital being added, automatic reinvestment and those dividend raises which come by way more often than those ugly cuts. This is the beauty of building up a diversified dividend income portfolio.

Are any of these dividend stocks in your portfolio too? How was your January dividend income? Please let me know below.
