WOOHOO! This Monday is not like the other Mondays… we are Xmas Eve! I’m so excited because tonight, in fact, tomorrow morning ;-), my kids will open their gift and they will find… Disney World tickets! We are leaving on January 2nd for 10 days! I’m super excited!

 

I won’t be writing for the next week since you will probably celebrating with your family and I’ll do the same on my side. But you also might want to relax and read some good articles from time to time. This is why I thought of putting together The Best of The Dividend Guy for 2012. This year was very important for my blog as I’ve achieved several milestones:

 

The Dividend Guy Blog in 2012 is:

 

479,449 visitors

821,706 articles read

46% Canadian, 38% American and 1 guy from Tonga reading it

5,564 awesome newsletter subscribers

24,786 downloads of Dividend Investing

4,300 downloads of 2012 Best Dividend Stocks (PSSST! 2013 Best Dividend Stocks is Going Live on January 1st!)

411 copies of Dividend Growth Sold (thx for your support!)

 

The Dividend Guy Blog Sister Sites:

I’ve also created several “mini-site” feeding or getting fed by The Dividend Guy Blog:

Dividend Stock Analysis: Covering all dividend stock analyses across the web and compiling them into 1 single site!

Canadian Dividend Stock: A review of more than 100 Canadian Stocks

Canadian REIT: Add yield and stability with REITs

What is Dividend: The perfect place to start if you are a beginner investor

 

I’ve put the “best posts” by categories so it’s easier to search through.
