It’s been a while since I used the “Weekend Wind Down” title for my weekend posts, but unfortunately my jar of originality is running pretty low. I hate to be really dull, but this week was all work, work, work! I barely had any time to write new posts, research material, or comment on other blogs. But that’s the way it goes though, right? Whenever things get busy like that, it reminds me how important my financial efforts truly are.
Speaking of financial efforts, I checked my Fidelity account and noticed that the dividend payments from my latest bundle of stock purchases are starting to roll in. I like seeing that! Early in May, I should have an update post on my progress with owning dividend stocks. I can already see how this is going to be a very integral part of my overall financial freedom plan.
I’d like to send a big thanks out to everyone that voted for me in the Free Money Finance March Madness contest this week. I’m happy to report that we won Round 3 and will be moving on to Round 4!
