Vanguard Dividend Growth

Anybody using this a lot? I have some money in it and am thinking about putting another $20-30k into it. Expenses are higher than the lower cost funds.....but I am trying to figure out a way to put in maybe $50K into some funds that are a little steadier than Total Stock etc.

I don't own Div Growth, but WRT "steadier" they look a lot alike to me. You might have to go to a balanced fund to have a single fund appreciably steadier (risk 3 vs 4 like TBM, DG or any stock fund), but you could reduce your TBM allocation and increase fixed income and have the same effect on your portfolio. I don't focus or worry much about the volatility of each fund I hold, what I care about is the volatility of the portfolio overall. YMMV
