As I'm writing this blog post on Friday, October 20, 2023, it's currently 56 degrees Fahrenheit and raining here in Central Wisconsin. This is about what you would expect for late-October, but it certainly beats snow!
With that weather update aside, I have some thrilling news regarding my career. As I alluded to a couple of weeks ago about my blogging schedule for the rest of 2023, I'll elaborate on said news in this blog post.

I'm Officially An Analyst At The Dividend Kings
Even preceding the formation of this blog in July 2018, I was and still am keenly interested in the dividend growth investing strategy. There were several individuals who were instrumental in the shaping this as my intended investing strategy since my teens, such as Joshua Kennon (dating back to when Dotdash was About.com) and Jason Fieber.
But ever since I created an account at Seeking Alpha in 2017, the individuals whose work I have followed the most include Brad Thomas and most especially, Dividend Sensei (aka Adam Galas). Reading the work of these guys over the years, my understanding of how to assess a company's quality (e.g., operating fundamentals, balance sheet strength, and risk management) and valuation has grown immensely.
Adam, Brad, and the team of analysts at The Dividend Kings and iREIT on Alpha are hands down among the very best in this business. That's why I'm happy to report that besides ramping up my content production at Seeking Alpha, I have taken a role as an analyst at the former. Each week, I write an article for Dividend Kings that is then eventually published to SA by Dividend Sensei. Here are the links to the first three that I have co-produced for those who are interested: Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and an EPD, MAIN, and PM listicle.
For a while now, I have thought about writing for a Marketplace service on SA. Almost two years after initially passing up an offer from DK to continue writing at Motley Fool, things have come full circle. I now am prepared to seize upon this opportunity and am eternally grateful to Dividend Kings for welcoming me aboard.
