Not much to brag about today, but I did receive a dividend payment: $0.83 for the one share of Ameriprise Financial I own.

The payment was small, as they pretty much all are with my positions being as small as they are, but it brought my May total up to $20.28. It’s not a life-changing amount, but it is a hair over $1 a day, which isn’t all that bad considering I started investing in dividend-paying stocks less than a year ago.

Having never received a dividend payment until this year, if you were to tell me I’d be making $1 a day in May, I’d be pretty happy with that. Now that it’s a reality, I can confirm … I am, in fact, happy with that. Hopefully by next May I’ll be averaging $2 or even $3 a day.

It was the 26th dividend I’ve received so far this month.
