Passive income of 2017

Hi All,
Are you ready to say good by to 2017?

It was an year of changes for me: at least the last quarter. I worked a lot, got raises, and changed jobs. Yes, of course, invested more too.
This is the year I joined the Lending Loop. I did add $400 there. That is really fun. I know which companies receive my loans. But, how much is getting as interest, and how much is coming as principal repayment? I am not able to figure that out yet. I have to wait for the year end report for that and I don't like that. So, I have to find a way to figure that out on a monthly basis. Till that, I decided not to add more money to Lending Loop

My other passive income is from dividend investment. I know how much I invested and how much earned. 
December dividends totalled to $147.46. It is a bit lower than the November income. 
My inner desire was to have an annual dividend of $3000. The actual for 2017 is $2666.42. It is almost a month's income and i don't have to work for that!!!!

Now, I can pat myself on the back!
some of my stocks went down during the year. But, hey, the dividends are still coming.
How the 2017 for you?

  1. Very close to your target. I am sure you will nail it next year. Lending loop looks interesting. I am also looking to diversify, finding capital is an entirely different story. All my funds went up. However, if they had gone down ... still no worries. Like you said dividends keep rolling in. Happy New Year!

  2. I bet you reach your target sometime this year! You are very motivated and it is paying off. I'm ready to say goodbye to 2017 - it had it's ups and downs and I learned a lot about myself.
    Have a Happy New Year!
