2019 was a year of trying to stay consistent with not trading stocks and focusing on receiving dividend payments. My willpower dwindled towards the end of the year and I made a few stock trades. I didn't do any options trades or cryptocurrency trades. These two trades were nightmares when inputting taxes for the 2018 year, so I stayed completely away from them in 2019.

Below are specific numbers on the dividends I received in 2018.

Dividends Received in 2019$178.94

I sold a lot of the monthly paying ETFs I had at the end of December 2019. The money from selling those ETFs I put into more stocks. I will be seeing fewer dividend payments, but when I do get paid, the dividend amounts should be higher.

Thanks for reading!
