The rollercoaster of 2021 has come to a stop. In this update I look back on Q4 2021 which had some hugely positive developments from a personal finance point of view.
In September 2020 I decided to try my hand at dividend growth investing, in October 2020, the Income Portfolio was born. A year on, these are the lessons I have learned and my takeaways from the experience.
What a crazy month September was. Worst monthly performance to date, but more dividends received than any month previously.

Did the Income Portfolio recover from June’s poor performance? Not really, but it’s not all bad news! Three new additions to the portfolio to discuss.

May was a good month! Progress on the house front, a solid return from the Income portfolio and I finally took the plunge into crypto so I’ll cover that too.
Yield farming is the practice of extracting as much yield as possible from DeFi. In this post I show you how to yield farm with Aave on the Polygon network.

April 2021, the month of the Doge! In a month where Dogecoin rose 528%, this mere mortal not only underperformed the mighty Doge, but also the S&P 500!
