Here is the dividend income report for July, 2023.
The monthly dividend income came out to $474.08. The yearly income total for 2023 through the end of the month was $6280.19.
The income for July, 2022 was $213.12, and the yearly income for 2022 through the end of July was $5916.53.
There is not a whole lot to report this month. My income is still growing nicely. I contributed funds to my Roth IRA last year, but I have not bought anything in the past year. I put some RWR into both of my IRA accounts in 2022. So the income growth is due to more dividends buying more shares. My employment situation is up in the air right now. If I have to leave my current employer, I will be up a creek WRT paying my bills. But I will be able to rollover my Roth 401K, and then I will start raking in bucks that I cannot touch for another ten years or so.
One thing that I have been spending time on is making Org mode files to keep track of artists for this site. I took the Wikipedia pages that categorized artists by country and century, and made them into an Org tree. I did not do all countries and all centuries, just France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Russia and Spain from the 12th to the 19th centuries. A couple of those countries did not have anything until about halfway through. I aleady had some notes for the artists that I had used and I incorporated those.
Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each July from the beginning of my records through 2023:
