Readers Advise - To Sell Or Not To Sell

Hi All

In my dividend portfolio there are 5 ETF's that for now pays me dividends, but those dividends are much smaller then if I will hold stocks that pays me growing dividends,but in the other view they are more volatility(it is also can be very good thing).

I will write the stocks I think that will replace those ETF's:

FDD (Europe dividend stocks) - SBUX 

DVY(Select Dividend) - PEP


IXJ (Healthcare) - JNJ

KBE (Regional Banks) - WFC

I find those stocks much attractive to me then those ETF's , the big problem is that for each sell or buy I pays $23 fee - so it is total of $230 fees but in 20 years perspective it is not much money but in today value it is alot.

So what do you think about my picks? Do you think other stocks can be better right now?

Side Hustles Part 2

After the first post about my side hustles, I remembered that once i wrote a blog about stamps and coins long time ago, I did a google on my name and - I FOUND IT!! , there was also google ads on this blog, so I tried my best to find in which email I wrote the stamps blog( Coins And Stamps Are Us ) and I got into the ad sense account and there it was :$17.84 waiting there for me for 7 YEARS!!! I accumulated this without any writing and promoting, so now I have more passive income and side hustle : Ads Advertising in my blogs (Google + Amazon).

Not Much but every cent count for me now so I can pay alimony without to worry much from where I should bring the money.

What else can I do to bring more money?

Dividend Income - July 2015

Another month has passed by and I'm glad to share my journey to financial freedom due to alimony.
In July I earned $200.66 (after tax) in dividends  -

MO - $10.14
GE - $6.90
KO - $8.41
KMB - $9.24
KHC(KRFT) - $165.97

In July the Heinz -  Kraft merger took place and i got the special dividend that Kraft share with us stock holders $16.5 per stock. This is my highest dividend income so far,I didn't put new and fresh capital to work for me - It is sad for itself. from now on the dividends income will be lower and normal for me, I do All the dividends are still in cash because I don't have a day job and soon I will need that cash to pay the alimony.
