March 2016 update

And now it is time for my March monthly update. It was another good month, better than previous month mainly due to another Crowdestate interest payment. Other portfolios also generated higher income than in February (one exception was lower dividend income). In March I increased my Omaraha portfolio due to the fact that Moneyzen did … Read more

August 2015 update

Passive income August was almost as good as previous month. Income from advertisements has started to climb again – summer vacations are over. The biggest disappointment was Bondora interest income that has dropped slightly (Moneyzen, Mintos and Estateguru increase has compensated the drop).

June 2015 update

Hi there! Another month has passed and summer warmth has not yet arrived in Estonia. It is time to give my June portfolio update. If someone is not yet noticed, half of the 2015 has passed (too fast!), therefore I plan to soon write another post about my half year goal progress.

What happened in June?

Nothing super interesting happened, but it was good month full of different sport activities. I started to use my bicycle when going to work (on sunny days) and I like it. You can look my progress on the chart below.

We Estonians also had our national holidays called “Jaanipäev” and “Eesti võidupüha” and I personally had almost 5 day mini vacation that included grilling and eating. It is a time when a lot of people drink and eat too much. I managed to avoid the first one entirely and the second one was managed also fairly good. The only regret is that I did not do much sport during that 5 day period only some work in our summer home.

BTW. I had an idea that someone should organize “Finatsvabadus” groups “summer days” event. For example, few hours of chatting and grilling meat in the nature. Maybe someone has a good spot/summer home near Tallinn?

Enough of that, back to numbers!

Passive income

June was again worse than 2 previous months, mostly because lower dividend income, however, this is expected due to the yearly dividend payment policy in the Baltic stock market. When not taking dividends into account, it was still worse than May as the advertisement income has decreased also (people spend less time on-line in summer).
