Weekly Reading LinksAs you saw from the previous post New Life for The Dividend Pig, I am the new site owner. I’d like to take this opportunity to personally say hello to each of you. Many of you I already know through my Canadian blog The Dividend Ninja. Some of you I don’t know, and I hope to get to know you through the posts and comments in the months to follow.

The Dividend Pig and I have more in common than you may think. He started his blog only a few weeks after I had started the Dividend Ninja, some two years ago. Although I’ve written mostly on Canadian companies, and the Dividend Pig on U.S. companies, both of us took the quality and depth of our posts seriously. I also think the Pig is a tough act to follow. The Pig put a lot of time, effort, and research into his posts, and it clearly shows. His stock analyses are top quality. As our sites grew, I made to sure to send links out his way, comment, and help promote his site when I could. I considered his site one of the best among the dividend bloggers. So being the new owner of the Dividend Pig, means far more to me than just being a new site owner.

So in the tradition of The Dividend Pig, it’s that time of the week again! Check out these great articles from around the web:

    • Hi Rob,

      Unfortunately yes, it is a common problem for bloggers. I do have plans to continue doing in-depth analysis, and posting them here on the site. As with most other bloggers however, real life sometimes gets in the way. Stay tuned!


  3. Congrats on the new site! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Dividend Pig in the future.
