Baby R2R

Hi all,

I wanted to announce that last week my wife and I welcomed a baby girl in our family. Both mother and baby are doing great and I couldn’t be happier 🙂 As first time parents, we have a lot of learning and adapting to do with our day-to-day lifestyle. Regular followers will see decreased activity on the blog and social media accounts as I will be spending more time away from the screen in the coming days.

Normal service should resume in a couple of weeks 🙂

cheers

Why I Chose Dividend Growth Investing

Hi all,

I was invited to guest post at dividendgrowthinvestor.com. DGI is one of the first bloggers I followed about a decade ago that convinced me on following the path to dividend growth investing to achieve financial independence; and it was an honor to be invited. Thanks again for the opportunity, DGI! 🙂

In this article, I introduce readers to some of the mistakes I made early in my investing career and how I discovered dividend growth investing. I also highlight a few advantages that come with this investing model. Be sure to check it out.

Introducing Dividend Growth Info

DivGrowthInfo

Hi all,

Lately, I’ve been putting some time into a new project. At first it just started off as exercise in gathering data about dividend announcements (both raises and cuts) by companies — and maintaining a centralized list and sharing with the community (available here). This involves a lot of manual work and needs some input from my end on a regular ongoing basis.

But I also decided to further this project by registering a new site which solely focuses on dividend growth increase and cut announcements. I decided to host this on a separate site as I simply wanted to keep this as a reporting/factual information location instead of including my personal views & takes on companies.

The new site: Dividend Growth Info

Sprinkle-in some added boredom in addition to extra time over the past couple of weekends and I decided to borrow and tweak a Twitter bot which periodically tweets the announcements.

Be sure to follow the Twitter bot here: DivGrowthInfo

As to what the future holds on this new project — I’m not sure. I want to make it a useful resource for the community and I welcome your input for new developments and ideas. Also, if you want to help out the community by working on this project, send me an email at info@roadmap2retire.com

Meanwhile, I ask my fellow bloggers to spread the word and follow/share the site and Twitter bot.

cheers,

R2R

500 Posts

This blog has been around for just over two years (or more accurately 30 months)…and this post marks my 500th blog post! When I started, I had no idea where this would go and/or what I wanted this outlet to become, other than to simple provide me with a platform to share my views and share my journey – so that it may educate and inspire others. Over the course of 30 months, I have enjoyed writing each and every single article and absolutely loved interacting with all the readers and commentators.

I would like to take this moment to acknowledge and thank you for the continued patronage. Here’s to the next 500 🙂

Sincerely,
Sabeel
