2021 is coming to an end. While everyone around me is preparing for new year's eve, (and pressing me to hop in the shower and put on a clean shirt) I wanted to take a few minutes to write a quick note to all of you who follow us on Seeking Alpha.
Without Seeking Alpha, my life would be considerably different. What started out many years ago, as a way to make some pocket money as a student and position myself for the job market, has ended up being my full time occupation.
Every year, my commitment to the platform has increased, as more and more of you decided to follow us, read our articles, take part in discussions (and eventually join the Dividend Freedom Tribe).
Counting all of the Marketplace posts we published on top of the public Seeking Alpha articles, We've published a total of 333 pieces of content this year.
Not quite one per day, but pretty damn close.
What you can expect from us in 2022?
In 2022, we hope to scale up our presence on Seeking Alpha by reinvesting into our team and product.
- We plan to continue to write one or two public articles per week for Seeking Alpha.
- We plan to write 5 pieces of content per week for the Dividend Freedom Tribe.
- We have hired a junior developer to bring forward the mobile version of our companion web app, MAD Plus, and to be able to iterate a lot faster in bringing new features and tools to members. There is no company in the tech world that builds as fast as us, and is as responsive to member requests.
- We care and want dividend investors to thrive. We'll do everything to make that happen.
Stretch goals: If we reach our growth goals, I'll hire one or two analysts by the end of the year. I've already been in talks with top analyst talent from Bulge Bracket banks who also fancy the remote lifestyle.
Thanks for being part of this journey
Whether you're one of the most engaged members of The Dividend Freedom Tribe, or just read our articles once in a while, thanks for being part of this journey.
I really do hope that our content is on point and will help you navigate another year full of unknowns and surprise.
Thank you for making it possible for me to share my thoughts with each and every one of you, and to make our offering more than just a family business: a true tribe of dividend investors from all walks of life.
Happy New Year!
