Week 45 update and dividend growth

EDIT: At the time this blog entry was posted I had a Youtube video here. That has been removed but I want the rest of my content to be remain. Nothing hidden no past mistakes ignored. All out in the open.

A quick update this week but a good one for the investing account. As I have mentioned before, the 1st quarter is the busiest time for dividend raises. Getting that yearly raise is not only an important aspect to dividend investing but it is quite enjoyable. While the world focuses on European debt problems added to the U.S. federal budget deficit problems, getting a raise to my income for free sure is good.

On top of that add the power of DRIP shares and we can get some nice income even for us do it yourself little guys.
