I added a tab to the google spreadsheet showing what my portfolio looked like on December 31st 2011. You can tell by the size difference that I've added a number of new companies this year. It is evident my yield on cost went down a bit with my focus on lower yielding/higher dividend growth stocks. It's not that much lower, dividend increases helped to keep it high. You can also see I started the year with a mountain of cash which I've been slowly investing.
I will update the sheet every year which will be fun. I don't see any reason why I would stop blogging, but who knows maybe I'll be too busy in the future. I've made $0 blogging since I don't have ads or anything. I don't get very many visitors and I don't really care. I blog because it's fun to look back at what I was doing and what I was thinking. It's a way for me to learn and become a better investor. I like interacting with fellow income & dividend growth bloggers.
