Just a quick update as I totally forgot (how could I??) that I received my first dividend income last week from shares that I have only recently started to purchase as part of my portfolio diversification! Woo hoo!
It was only a little payout of £3.80 from my small holding of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) shares but this should be the first of many dividend payouts over the coming years. I’ll be adding it to the pot to purchase future shares.
Whilst I’m not aiming for dividends to substantially cover my expenses in the future, having a small regular income from them is my plan – maybe they’ll cover my bingo membership….if I end up playing bingo!
