It’s Thanksgiving Week. I’m already seeing the madness weeks before Black Friday for this year. I just found out that I’m taking a 3-day Holiday break from work. This isn’t the usual Thanksgiving we had in the past. It also means this weekend will have the last event in this abbreviated season. During the same time frame, I learned that Speed Unlimited will be closing shop after 53 years at the end of the month due to the financial impact of the Covid-19 Outbreak. You can watch the tribute cruise-in for this business on this link! Before the pandemic wreaked havoc in America, Capitol Raceway in Crofton was closed earlier this year due to a departure in Ownership. Despite this development, it hasn’t stopped some racing fans from campaigning for it’s reopening. 2021 is weeks away, and we hope the new year will have a better ending than what we’re experiencing now!

Thanksgiving is next week. I’m already experiencing the madness associated with the Christmas Holiday season with too many empty shelves on essential goods. It also means people have changed or replanned their travel arrangements. It also means that outdoor dinings will be reduced significantly. If there is 1 bright spot, I get next Saturday off. I’m still listing items on my Mercari page because they’re running a contest that ends this Sunday. You can see some of my new listings on this link! I might post some more items there the same way I’m adding new galleries to my feature model and eye candy sections to the website!

Good Afternoon! I spent most of my morning listing items I purchased on Craigslist on eBay, Mercari, and Offer Up. Here’s the situation! I’m experiencing an unexpected slow down as a result of covid-19 concerns. The slow down in work is creating issues with booking models in the future. A steady, consistent flow of income besides my day job is necessary to ensure that future photoshoots and event coverage isn’t interrupted. Therefore, I’m branching out to avoid a total shut down in all areas. Everyone including needed to make some changes to keep their heads above water. I just created another Bentbox Box for sale (18+) from the same photoshoot that gave you the latest feature model gallery. I’ll be working on some new boxes and galleries in the lean times.

Good Evening! I’m getting the finishing touches ready for tomorrow’s photoshoot with September’s feature model in a different studio setting. The weather is moving towards cooler temperatures. It’s time to move it inside to avoid being at the mercy of the unpredictability of winter weather. I just posted the latest feature model photoshoot with Ohio-based model Tigger! This would be the 3rd Gallery featuring her. You can see the other galleries that were posted here! Those weren’t the only galleries available. I also created the uncut version of those sets. I have 2 uncut galleries (18+) available for viewing (18+). Speaking of viewing, the only car show left this season this virtual charity event. Due to changes in Maryland’s Covid-19 action plan, The East Coast Indoor Nationals has been moved back to 2021. I also posted several events that were rescheduled for 2021. It’s a temporary inconvenience, but it’s still temporary.

Good Tuesday Afternoon! Since I’m an essential worker, I got a 1st hand look at how busy my workplace was when the Christmas Holiday Shopping Season got started. That season started this past weekend. My work functions have returned to my previous job functions a few weeks ago. I also got Black Friday off last year. My schedule hasn’t informed me if Black Friday or Saturday was the day I would get time off since I won’t over 40 hours in a work period. During that same time period, I saw more sales on the Mercari site. I also spent time organizing the items I either got from Freecycle, Trash Nothing, Craigslist, and 2nd Hand Store. I also spend time organizing more future feature model photoshoots for the Divas-N-Rides website. I’m also updating the financial side of my side hustle to end this year on a positive note! I’m working on a way not just to increase the sales on my other income streams created. I’m also interested in adding more funds to accounts like Betterment and Stash. It’s about setting the new year in a better way while making important moves to end 2020 after the chaos and madness that rocked everyone worldwide!

Good Evening! The election is over, and we’re still waiting for the official results. If you vote, good for you! However, voting is just one step in the process. So, don’t get complacent! Just added a new gallery from September’s photoshoot with Kat Digman. You can click here to see the 1st half of Kat’s feature model photoshoot. Next week, I’ll have another feature model photoshoot. This photoshoot features Myrra Hixson. You can check out the photoshoot from Labor Day 2020. While regular side hustle has started to return to normal business this past weekend, I just had a string of new sales on Mercari. It’s clear some folks are getting started with their Holiday shopping now instead of Black Friday. I’m preparing my other revenue streams to be ready for the potential Day after Thanksgiving mad dash! Speaking of the end of the year, The East Coast Indoors Nationals still happening next month. It’s the final automotive event of 2020. It’s been a strange year where everything had to pivot in more ways than 1. The saving grace is that I found a way to create content in different ways than expected.

Halloween is just 2 days away. It’s not going to be a normal Halloween. Then again, what was normal anyways? The ballot was finished and dropped off at the ballot box close to home. I spent most of the time upgrading my bitly page. Today, I posted shortened links from this newly premium service account to last month’s photoshoots with Myrra and Kat. Since I’m planning to showcase the updated merchandise from the Divas-N-Rides store, I also posted several Divas-N-Rides designs over to my eBay store. I did all this through the website Printful. The goal was to create new merchandise for the website without having to find space at home to store items. It was also an attempt to expand the brand to a new platform to get more sales and attention. I have another event this weekend to attend. Those highlights will be posted by the weekend is over.

Good Evening! Next week is Election Day! If you can vote early or drop off your ballot at the nearest ballot drop off-site, I recommend doing so. I’m dropping off mine tomorrow. I also just posted a new event highlight gallery from this past weekend. One of my funding sources has hit a slow period. Now, I’m adding more sale items to my Mercari site. I also adding new designs and merchandise to my Cafe Press site. I’m also moving forward with phasing some old items with newly designed merchandise for future photoshoots.

The Daily Drive is back. Well, it’s the nighttime edition for this post. Anyhow, I just posted images from this past weekend’s Asphalt Angels Breast Cancer Awareness Car Show. Before I attended the event, I had a previous commitment canceled. However, I did pick up a makeup commitment. In the meantime, I did see a few new sales from my Mercari site! The 3 new sales do help out in having another funding source for this website. I also plan to lean on other funding sources to ensure any related projects for this website is carried out even if they have to be pushed back later this year or next year.

Greetings! I’ve decided to change the Daily Drive to the Monthly Drive because of my schedule. I decided it made more sense to call it the Monthly Drive due to the changes in my schedule. I just finished posting the latest edition of the eye candy feature page. I have another feature model photoshoot coming up next week. For this upcoming photoshoot in Downtown DC, I had to make a soft upgrade to the gear needed to perform in the specific circumstances. The last time I did a photoshoot in that type of setting was back in February with Julie in Charm City. It had so many great images from that photoshoot I couldn’t fit in 1 gallery. I created a 2-part gallery for Bent Box (all links are 18+). It’s clear that I’m having better financial good fortune with Bentbox than Patreon. I’m close to cracking the $100 mark. I’m realizing I need to post more content and embed the promotions of the links within the pages because Facebook won’t allow any postings of websites that contain contents that geared towards an audience over 18 years. This isn’t a build it, they will come format. You need to create, edit, promote, update your content. It’s more you put it out, the more people will notice. It’s about consistency. It also means I have to get new clothes to feature on future photo shoots.

It took me a while, but I was able to get the images from the July photoshoot and August photoshoot posted online! Yesterday was my birthday, and I enjoyed the quiet time by myself. I got 2 more galleries to get uploaded online before the week is over. I have 2 more photoshoots next month. I also plan to post new designs on the online store before the week is up.

It’s been 7 months since I covered an automotive or motorcycle event in 2020. The event I covered last week felt like an entirety. It was a good time I wouldn’t miss for the world. Who would have thought this year was the year where everything we took for granted would vanish without any warning. It also made a lot of us pivot quicker than expected. I spent the time working on either the Divas-N-Rides store, making sales on either on eBay or Mercari. I’m in the process of completing 3 photo galleries with 4 models in the past 3 months.

For those wondering about the radio silence, here’s the lowdown. The events calendar has been changed a few more times with several events pushed back to next year. There are 2 car shows this weekend. I just learned 2 more events had to be canceled due to concerns with the current global pandemic impacting everything and almost everything. At the same time, most of the state of Maryland will be in the Phase 3 re-opening stage. I did a successful photoshoot on Labor Day in Silver Spring courtesy of Peerspace. After that, I booked a photoshoot later this month. I’m also working to get the other 2 feature models pages posted as soon as possible. I also signed up for an upcoming House of Photographer event this Thursday. This will be my latest attempt at maternity photography. I did a photoshoot with a pregnant model this month 2 years ago. The new Galleries will be online before the week is over!

If you’re wondering why there was radio silence with the Daily Drive, Here’s the rundown on what’s been happening. I now have a new daily driver. I lost my previous one back in March. This new car has more room, storage space, and has under 50K in miles. I also have been seeing uptick in sales on my eBay store and Mercari site. In addition, I made updates to the Official Divas-N-Rides store. If you haven’t seen the new designs on sale, now is a great time to take a peak. Recently, I made changes to the events calendar due to some significant changes to the events I was going before the pandemic changed things. It looks like Maryland International Raceway for 2020 is out of the question due to the venue’s guidelines concerning staff and guests’ safety. I still have hope to attend the 2020 Haltech World Cup Finals: Imports Versus Domestics in November.

Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the Daily Drive presented by Tree3 and Auto Parts Toys! I just finished a photoshoot this weekend. I’m working on the photos and future photoshoots in the next month. Here’s a preview of what I will be posting this week. I also have made updates on the events calendar. There’s one event I plan to attend until noted otherwise. I also have made some updates to the original Divas-N-Rides Store. The new designs haven’t been posted elsewhere. Despite posting some on my eBay store, I’m planning to show off those new looks in the next few weeks.

Happy Tuesday! The Daily Drive has a new sponsor. That sponsor is Tree 3. They along with Auto Parts Toys will sponsor this part of the website starting today and going forward. Normally, I would be planning to head to Maryland International Raceway this weekend. However, the Covid-19 crisis has changed those plans. 1st, I have other commitments to fulfill this upcoming weekend and beyond. 2nd, The only event at MIR that looks favorable to attend is the Street Car Takeover in August. I also found a set of wheels soon so I won’t be spending too much on rideshare services. On the flip side, WMATA has it’s own After-Hours Commuter Service Program available. I’m looking into this to save myself from having to scramble to find the fund for a ride! Speaking of Metro, They are adding more buses, trains to the service starting in August. I’ve limited my Metro use to tasks on Taskrabbit and other creative activities. I realize public transit travel is a risky activity. With that out of the way, I’ve also made some sales from my other revenue sources like eBay, Mercari, and other places. Soon, I’ll have more new content to share before the end of the month!

Happy Weekend! I’m in the process of getting a new ride. It’s clear I can’t depend on ride-sharing services to get to and from work on a regular basis without any issues disrupting the routine too much.  I plan to have a functioning ride before next weekend. In the meantime, I’m gonna need to reduce expenses and increase cash coming to avoid further financial problems. I recently added new merchandise created on Printful to my eBay Store and Bonanza Booth. 1st, I don’t have to store any inventory. 2nd, I can add new products without having to buy anything. 3rd, any afford to cover the expense without relying on one funding source is important. I felt it was time to think differently. This isn’t the time to shrink. It’s clear this isn’t a normal summer. Therefore, I’m taking different action steps to resolve those issues. Is anyone interested in a change where they want to bank today?

Good Evening! I just completed my 1st photoshoot since March when the global health crisis landed in America. Those images are now available for viewing. Also, I added a new gallery to the Eye Candy Page. I also have some of the images that are too hot for this website on this link (18+)! I just fixed an issue with my eBay store. I refunded a customer, and I’m still waiting for a customer to complete a purchase they made days ago. In other revenue source news, I made 2 successful sales from my Mercari page! Now, I need to find a new ride. I lost my original ride back in March. I’m using ride-sharing sites to get to work. Right now, I’m adding new items for sale. I’m also making changes to my other funding sources in progress. I also got new Divas-N-Rides merchandise in the pipeline coming soon!

For those wondering where I have been, Here’s the lowdown. I had to reschedule 2 photoshoots due to transportation issues and scheduling conflicts. I had an event rescheduled to September. In the downtime, I made updates to the event calendar. I also had some sales on my other revenue streams like Mercari and eBay. I also added Divas-N-Rides theme merchandise to other sales channels beside Cafe Press and Spread Shirt. I decided it was time to get our gear out there since there needs to be another to earn money from more than one setting. I’m also working to add more funds to financial sites like Aspiration Bank, Beem, Betterment, Stash, etc. In the event it’s safe to attend actual motorsport events in the region, I will have the funds to attend and cover them without any financial stress in the foreseeable future. I’ll have the Queen Helen photo gallery posted this evening!

Good Evening, Afternoon, or Morning! If you haven’t been on the website recently, I just added new galleries to the Flashback Friday section and the Eye Candy section. I’m also working to set up more galleries to add until it’s safe to attend events. Here’s the lowdown. My neck of the woods has entered the Phase 2 stage. Prince George’s County started yesterday. Montgomery County will start on the what was supposed opening date of the District. I have seen an increase in the activity on my income source. Meanwhile, there has been more action coming from my other revenue stream than the 1st revenue stream created for this website. Now, I need to get the latest revenue source more exposure to ensure all revenue sources work in step with each other. That will help in getting something for dad on Father’s Day!

Happy Tuesday! Here’s the latest edition of the Daily Drive. If you missed last week’s post, I’m reposting the links to the books, resources available to those who are truly serious about combating racism, police brutality, and human rights abuse! Weeks earlier, I listened to an episode of the Growth Show about a Chicago based bookstore surviving and thriving due this global health crisis! This episode also had a list to campaign to help get books to school children across the city. I’m in the process of adding new galleries in the Eye Candy section and Flashback Fridays! If you ever visited the event calendar page, several events have been either removed or rescheduled as my region is still stuck in between Phase 1 and Phase 2 reopening. I’m also making some updates to the Divas-N-Rides store and my other online business that’s open. They will reach a point where they are on the same level with the other revenue sources we use everyday

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you’re having a safe and happy Memorial Day! I’m also saying thanks to the men and women of the Armed Forces and 1st responders on this National Holiday! With the current state of affairs going on right now, I had to improvise with what I got available. This hasn’t been the normal spring many of us experience. In addition, this isn’t going to a normal summer either! People had their everyday lives disrupted by a force beyond their control. Even if you didn’t lose a job, a loved one, and/or a friend, it’s clear no one is ever immune from the impact that was dealt to everyone directly or indirectly felt the effect of this health crisis. However, my neck of the woods is slowly moving closer to phase 1 of reopening by June 1. Now, I’m working on making moves on this website and more once phase 1 of reopening the region is in full effect. I’m getting all my tools together so I won’t have to race to gather everything to get my 1st post Stay At Home Orders gigs. I just finished creating another box for sale on Bentbox (18 years and older)! This box (18 years and older) I created today features one of the feature models from last year’s photo shoot. One thing I did during the Stay At Home orders was enacted was I put more effort into getting one of my other revenue streams up and running to get another form of income to make up for any lost work from this health crisis. Now, I got to upload other images from past photo shoots uploaded to show and share with others. Before I go, I need to share this video I made last year during Memorial Day Weekend!

Greetings, Everyone! This isn’t a normal Memorial Day Weekend. Sure, the Coca-Cola 600 is still happening. It’s not the usual Memorial Day. The pandemic has changed everything on this website and everything else in between. There won’t be any car shows and motorcycle events this weekend in my neck of the woods. I lost count of the number of events that I had to remove from the event calendar due to health and safety issues from this global health crisis. Some events have been pushed back to later this year since the ban on public gatherings are still in effect. The beaches are open, but they have safety rules as well! The one thing that is for certain is that the latest edition to the eye candy gallery is open. Tomorrow, the latest gallery will be added to the Flashback Fridays Gallery. I also added some new products to not just one, but 2 of our revenue sources! Finally, we got a video from an event this website covered last year. Hopefully, we make to the other side better than our old selves!

Happy Thursday! Maryland and Virginia will start phase 1 of reopening this weekend. However, DC, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia won’t start reopening until the end of May or early June. Here’s the deal! Everyone wants local economies to get to business after shutting down 2 months as a result of this global health crisis. However, not everyone is at the 1st phase level. There’s a good chance we won’t see some businesses reopen when all. For those who are concerned about having a source of income coming, the best place I go to is Skillshare. I’ve taken a few classes on their platform to add new skills.  Soon, those new skills will pay off big time! I’m working towards getting my Taskrabbit business resumed. I’m also seeing more action from one of my revenue streams. I just recorded 2 sales yesterday! I also set up some new listings that will go live this Sunday! I’m also working on new listings on my other revenue source! Tomorrow, I’ll have the latest Flashback Fridays and Eye Candy gallery posted to kick-off the weekend.

Good Afternoon! It’s been 2 months since I did a photoshoot. For most folks, that sounds like years. Even though I added new content on the Flashback Fridays section, I’m in the process of adding new content on the eye candy section because I haven’t uploaded and edited the photos. Here’s the lowdown on this worldwide health crisis. I live in the DC Capital Region, and they’re in no rush to reopen now due to the upward trend in cases. So, the earliest I can expect the region to start the reopening would be the end of May. That means I have to ensure any event calendar updates match the news updates! All I know is that Maryland International Raceway won’t be open until the end of May. Now, think about this! 3 months on events wiped out! On the other hand, Nascar will return to action this weekend. Indycar returns to action next week minus fans. This is a slow recovery period. I was hoping the curve would flatten for the whole region, not bits and pieces! However, I’m working on new designs and updates to the website and the store! I’ll have new galleries posted before the night is over.

Good Afternoon! I made some changes to the calendar yesterday! From what I learned, the earliest you’ll see new event galleries on this website will be the end of May. This month, Nascar will be back in action next weekend. F1, Indycar, and NHRA won’t be back until later in the summer months. So, we’re slowly moving from iracing to real racing. It’s clear this will be the few live sports we’ll have available to watch. In addition, I’m working on re-establishing some of the feature models photoshoots I was working on before the global health crisis wreaked havoc on everyone and everything. I might actually take a look at doing virtual photoshoots. Getting new content posted won’t be an issue despite the current situation everyone is in right now! Some of the photoshoots will include items from either the original Divas-N-Rides Store or the newly launched Home Team Legends online store. If you haven’t visited them yet, now would be a good time as the weather begins to slowly move upwards depending on where you are.

Good Evening! April is gone, and we’re now in May now! It’s clear that my 1st trip to MIR this year will be at the end of the month. With the stay at home orders still active, Memorial Day Weekend could be the earliest they’ll see events resume. This or any activity in the region is up in the air until regional leaders collectively find a timeframe to get DC/MD/VA to ease up on restrictions once all 3 jurisdictions get the curve to flatten and then some. Okay, it’s clear quarantine fatigue is getting real. Here’s the deal! The normal we were used to won’t be returning anytime soon. Even if the curve flattens before Memorial Day and all 3 stages of reopening is complete, it won’t be the same. Sure, some events will happen or get a new date. However, we better prepare for the new reality that’s coming on the other side of this! Sure this isn’t the usual blog post I make. However, the extra time I have now will make me make the moves that I should have done weeks ago. One way to keep followers active is to use your available time to learn new skills at Skillshare! Oh, by the way, I made some updates on this revenue stream based on the activities that occurred last month. I’m also launching a series of new sales on this revenue stream this Sunday to kick start cash flow and revenue. The goal is to have enough funds available when the car show and cruise season get back up and running. Finally, Flashback Friday has been relaunched! The newest post can be found here!

Happy Tuesday! Still here with all of those who supported us since the website’s rebirth back in 2017. This month marks 15 years since the original Divas-N-Rides was born. It’s been a wild ride, but it’s amazing this project is thriving throughout the decade and a half in action. I’ve been spending more time doing spring cleaning around my place. While the 1st source of website revenue stream had some hits and misses this month, We’re getting some traction from another revenue stream that saw some steady growth in the last few weeks. I’m focusing on the events calendar and the galleries. I also plan to relaunch Flashback Fridays before the week is up. I’m in the process of examining several media storage devices to find any galleries that didn’t get posted in the past. This is where you can see the site before moving to WordPress! Check the next posting or visit for details.

Happy Saturday! Let’s go over what happened this week! Last week, I had an active week with one of my revenue sources. This week, a different revenue source has seen more action than expected! With most events being canceled or pushed back to later dates, I’ve taken advantage of the free time to clean out the house, learn new skills, create new revenue streams, engaged in new events, and reorganize parts of my life in the process! As I made updates to the calendar, there may be some signs of hope on the way. There’s a possibility that many events I posted will happen as scheduled or on a new makeup date. It’s been a long wait. It’s clear the other side of this could be here sooner than expected. Let’s be prepared when the new set of normal beings!

Happy Saturday! Since there are no automotive or motorcycle events until it’s safe for the public to attend events safely, I’ve been working on some other items in the house this week. I’m working to collect and save funds for a new car to replace the one damaged weeks ago. To achieve this plan, I needed to get creative with new ideas I made. I added new designs and merchandise for my latest revenue source. I was able to generate some successful sales with my other revenue streams. I’m also working to set-up my television for the latest edition of Kindle Fire TV! Sure, there are shows worth catching upon. However, I have other things that need to be taken care of first. Then, I can relax and watch.

Happy Easter! I’m resting after a hectic week. A week ago, I had multiple sales on the eBay store. However, I’m branching out to other forms of revenue. I’m also planning to resume learning new skills from Skill Share. I’m also going back to some previous photo shoots to find photos to add to the eye candy gallery. Since most of the events on the events calendar are in jeopardy if this global health crisis gets worse before getting better.

Greetings! Although I had some more sales with one of my more stable revenue streams in the past 3 days, I had to make some small changes this afternoon. I used to promote my Cafe Press Store that I had since the birth of Divas-N-Rides in 2005. However, I felt it was time to part ways. I realize that I had to retire the store. Every effort I made to promote the store didn’t produce anything fruitful. I decided to shift the Divas-N-Rides merchandise to this new revenue source. The main reason for the switch was I had more product options to create for store merchandise. In addition, I create gift cards for those who are having a hard time looking for a gift for others or themselves!

I just finished one of the most successful sales weekends from one of my revenue streams. I just had to re-examine how items are sold and how to increase sales without having to lose future revenues in the process. It’s been a while since I did a photoshoot for this website. It looks like late June or July could be the soonest I will be back in this current environment. I’m working on upgrading my account to ensure that photos from past events can be uploaded soon. I made some changes to my money so I can afford to make the necessary upgrades to improve this website. I also worked to ensure I have a steady stream of income when this global health crisis comes to an end. With the free time available, here’s a video from an event this website covered last year!

Happy Thursday! All this free time should be the time to create new content in the absence of any actual events taking place this spring. I also add a special deal with my eBay Store. They’re giving free listings until the end of April. I got a few boxes that I didn’t touch. Now, I can take advantage of this promotion. With the increase of listings, that will likely increase the revenue needed to sustain the website during the global health crisis that’s disrupting everyone’s life. If you want to support those who had their lives and career affected by this outbreak, the discount ticket hub Goldstar has created a donation page for those businesses who’ve been hit hard by this crisis. Show your support to the people and business that makes this community thrive!

Here’s an update on my situation. My daily driver is in the dreaded “Stick A Fork In It; It’s Done!” category. In other words, the car sustained too much damage from last week’s accident to be repaired. That sucks because I went to various events with this car. On the other hand, another ride was available for me until a new ride is available. So, I’ll look for a vehicle that has more space, more necessary features to drive my work and other creative projects. With that out of the way, There’s a good chance I won’t resume car scene and motorcycle scene coverage until May or June. All 3 jurisdictions in the D.M.V Region have issued Stay At Home Orders for all citizens. In other words, you can only go out for essential work, get essential items for your health and home, physical activities with social distancing, and essential businesses. That means you have to cross off all events for April until the curve is flatten big time. Therefore, I need to reschedule feature model photo-shoots and find something else to record. That means more free time to get my revenue sources up to date! If you haven’t heard, I created a new blog for the mother ship, Moore Photo Graphix. I’m also planning to add new content despite the lack of live events to attend. Until then, I do have something to keep you entertained

It’s been 2 weeks since the Covid-18 outbreak became a worldwide epidemic. I’ve been most of the time not at work home. It’s clear that the car show season is getting pushed back more to the final weeks of Spring. That means the event calendar needs to be updated daily. Even the warmer isn’t a guarantee without additional tools and steps needed to combat this illness. I’ve also been finding ways to generate sources of income due to the fact that the type of work I get booked for on Taskrabbit has been affected by the global health crisis. Last Week, I made some purchases on Craigslist to resell on either eBay, Amazon or Mercari. I went out of the house to pick up items that weren’t shipped to my house in accordance with my health and safety. However, my daily driver is in the shop because of an accident this past Monday. Therefore, I’m putting more focus on my dropshipping site and other selling platforms. I do have to report that I made a sale last night, and I’ll have other items sold on eBay by Sunday Night. Here’s some videos I made earlier this year that you can’t miss!

Normally, I would be changing the channels back and forth between March Madness and any photos from previous events I attend. However, the COVID-19 outbreak is throwing a wrench into things. I heard about the threat of the disease back in February. I was already taking the precautions that were needed to survive this crisis. A good portion of the events on the event calendar have been cancelled, pushed back, or delayed! I did schedule 2 photoshoots next month. Now, I’m not in a state of panic. I’m not rushing to see my investment accounts. I’m not fighting over consumer goods that people took more than enough to last. The irony of this whole situation is that I made $1,000 last week from a 3-day work project involving office furniture. I also made some sales with my eBay Store. I’m also working on adding new listings to the store since more and more people are staying indoors. I’m also working to add new galleries and content to the website to keep those who won’t be going anywhere will need to be entertained, or need a break from all the bad news in the media or social networks. This ain’t the time to live in fear. It’s time to face these uncertain future with courage, conviction, compassion and clarity.?

I’m not going to waste your time with this latest edition of the Daily Drive. I spent the past few days selling items on one of my revenue sources this week. I was able to have 3 successful sales this week despite the health scare that’s disrupted many people’s lives and livelihood. To say the disease and our response to it have put many lives in difficult positions is the understatement of the year. Now, it’s clear I need to make some proactive moves now. I’ve been spending more creating a reselling business with the various selling apps on my phone. I also decided to get out of the house because loneliness sucks! I also have to update the events page for the website since several events have been canceled or moved to a later date. It also means that photoshoots scheduled this month and next month will be affected heavily! However, this open time frame has also given me the opportunity to add more content in the eye candy section. I’m also working on a new revenue stream to help out until the situation changes for the better!

Wow! It’s been 2 weeks since I posted on the Daily Drive! Here’s an update that was long overdue. The crisis involving the COVID-19 has gotten everyone on edge! Stores can’t store enough water, paper products, disinfecting wipes, and more in stock. It’s time to make a stop here since everyplace I know is running low and then some. Formula 1, Formula E, and Moto GP had to pull the plug on their scheduled events because the locations were hit hard by COVID-19. South by Southwest Festival was canceled. Despite news of confirmed cases, I found out some events are still happening. I just added new shows and meets the event calendar. I just finished updating several revenue streams that have helped add more cushion to the website’s goal of attending several events and making the necessary upgrades to ensure new content is available daily!

Happy Friday! I just finish posting 2 feature model galleries this Friday! The 1st gallery features Maine model Maya. The 2nd gallery features New York by Taiwan based model Julie. I got those galleries set! I’m now putting the finishing touches on a photoshoot tomorrow. It had to be moved up due to the client’s schedule! Speaking of schedule, I had to remove 2 events from the event calendar that were supposed to happen next month. Despite the fact both events have been scrapped, I did find other events to replace them. With the new events added, I’m focusing now on increasing traction on one of many revenue streams to fund this website as the weather gets warmer, and more shows start getting added! Another way to keep this up and running is to join our Patreon Page! For $1, your name on a video sounds cool!

Whenever you’re reading this, Good Morning, Afternoon, or Good Evening! I’m making an update to the event calendar. Since Capitol Raceway doesn’t have a track owner, Import Face-Off has decided to remove the Capitol Raceway event from their calendar. I would rather have them either contact Maryland International Raceway, Cecil County Dragway, or Colonial Beach Dragway. It’s clear they didn’t have the time to wait for the situation to work out. However, there are new events added to the calendar to made up what was lost. I’m getting ready for another feature model photoshoot this weekend. I’m also working on other ways to collect funds needed to cover a majority of expenses occurred!  I got several revenue streams set up to get the funds needed! I also made updates to the Patreon Page for Divas-N-Rides! If you want to have your name in one of our videos, just pledge $1 and you’ll see your name is the latest video coming up soon!

Welcome to the 1st Daily Drive for the month of February. Highlights of the 2020 Washington Auto Show are available! It’s the video compilation highlights that I’m posting below. If you’re viewing this on Tumblr, it’ll be on the top. I’m working to get the website upgraded so more images can be added from mobile devices. I plan to have them posted on the website before the end of the month. I already posted another feature model photo gallery live online last week. I also have another feature model gallery made available today. This morning, I made some updates to my Patreon page. I added new content to the page to show folks how active this is! I also made a major change to one of my pledges. If you pledge $1, you can get your name on one of my next videos. This weekend, I plan to cover the Motor Trend Auto Show in Downtown Baltimore and the Baltimore International Motorcycle Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. My goal is to get 250 $1 pledges by noon on 02/05/2020. If you want to continue to support this website, you can also visit the eBay store that has also help fund the website! I’m working on getting $100 in sales/day to cover any expenses that the other funding sources weren’t able to cover!

Good Afternoon or Good Evening, whenever you’re reading this. The 1st car show gallery of 2020 is now live on the website. This was so big I needed another photo gallery to cover the whole event. With that being said, I was working on the photo gallery when I heard that Kobe Bryant passed away. I think it was real until more news surfaced to confirm the worse. What makes this story heartbreaking was he, his daughter and members of basketball teams and their families were on the helicopter heading to basketball game. The one thing that made respect Kobe was his winning mindset. He operated with a win at all cost attitude. I also learned he was more interested in the process than the results. I also learned watched game films from a radio ad a few years ago. This hunger to do better was what made him a legend. He also took that with him in the post-basketball career. Too bad, the life after basketball part was gone too soon!

I also have several feature models and beauty of the week pages that will be posted before the week is over. I also noticed some activities in one of my revenue sources! It was able to cover some unexpected expenses that showed up. I also saw some new activity in another revenue stream for the website! It’s was an active weekend with multiple items sold. BTW, the 1st video for 2020 is now ready for your viewing pleasure!

Good Afternoon! Hopefully, most of you are getting the new year off on a good note. I can’t wait for this weekend to come. The Progressive International Motorcycle Show is coming to town. I plan to attend this weekend. I’m glad this year’s event won’t conflict with another motorcycle event. I’ll see plenty of new motorcycles, motorcycle parts, and accessories on display and sale. Any coverage from this event will be posted on this website. I also plan to add more funds to ensure that I can attend this event and other events this month. You’ll be amazed by what we’ll see this weekend.

Good Afternoon, evening, or whenever you read this. It’s the 1st blog of 2020. I spent New Year’s Day promoting one feature model page while finishing up another feature model page. I was able to get this feature model gallery posted before 2019 was over. I got 2 photo shoots officially set up this month. I might some more booked either later this or next month depending on circumstances. I also spent some time offline finding new items to sell on either my eBay Store or Bonanza Marketplace Booth. I’ve been working on boosting my revenue streams to help fund the website without incurring any new debts that could keep it from expanding. Therefore, this website can check out more events happening this year and beyond. Some have there 2020 schedule up and running. This website is updating it each and every day. Let’s end this post with another favorite video on the Divas-N-Rides Youtube Channel!

With all the ups and downs I went through this year, I plan to make better moves to increase the visibility and profitability of the website. I just finished uploading the following feature model gallery. The Lauren Leola gallery is uploaded. The Karly Salinas Gallery is uploaded! If you plan to have any of our merchandise in our home in the new year, you can visit our Official Divas-N-Rides store.  I’m working on a few new galleries right now, and I plan to post them before the night is over.

How was everyone’s Christmas! It’s Happy Boxer Day around the world. I hope you’re having a safe and wonderful Christmastime with the ones you love. I’m having a great Christmas myself! Next week, we have New Year’s Day. I also ready got parts of the 2020 calendar already set up. I also plan to posts some of the other photo shoots from the past couple of months. They’ll be divided in the feature model Gallery and Eye Candy Gallery. I also have one feature model photo shoot coming up this weekend. With any new year, it means this website will add more revenue streams to the already established revenue streams created this year. Therefore, we’ll provide visitors and loyal fans the content they need. Since we’re saying goodbye to 2019, here’s one of the most popular videos from the Divas-N-Rides Youtube Channel that got plenty of love!

There’s one week left before Christmas comes. That means everyone and their moms are rushing to finish their Christmas Holiday Gift Giving Plans done by next week. If you need gifts for your enthusiast friend or family, at least the Divas-N-Rides store is always open. If the Divas-N-Store isn’t your cup of tea, you can visit my eBay store. There are still some good gifts available to go to your loved ones by Christmas Day. It took a while to get one of the uncut versions of the feature model photo set that we posted earlier this year. I also got the 1st post of the Collide page I created today. It’s just the 1st step in making it a new revenue stream to support this website. Before I go, I got to share this video from earlier this year!

I also created an eye-candy gallery in conjunction with our previous feature model gallery posted several weeks ago. Recently, I have installed a new revenue stream to help fund the website by having to take any more money out of my own pocket. I was working with another company to help this website! I had several sales this week from my eBay store. In addition, I’m in the process of updating the content posting schedule to ensure new videos, photos, and other content gear toward the website is uploaded and online immediately!

Good Afternoon! I’m in the process of doing a fall clean-up with both Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching. I also have a few feature model galleries that need to be completed for the month of November. Recently, I have been successful with one of the revenue streams in the past 4 days. Even though I added a new inventory for sale, I’m having issues with getting steady cash flow for the store. At least, I have several backup revenue streams in place to ensure this website will never run short of funding. Once I get those issues resolved, I’ll have more free time to take of the things I need to do.

Now, I need to get the post-production work out of the way so it can be seen and shared. I just made some updates to the website because of various changes dating back to the last Monday of October when I working on items outside the website. I just saw some major uptick in one of my revenue streams in the past few days. I’m seeing more successful sales in the store. I also added another revenue stream to help support the website. If you haven’t been to the Pateron page, now would be a great time to do so!

I also spend the last few days getting the event calendar updated with all the new events that were posted. Some events were booked months in advance. I also got another eye-candy gallery up and running this week. There will be another feature model gallery psoted before the week is up. Most of the reason I haven’t been posting is that one of my revenue streams required my undivided attention. To make a long story short, It was one of the busiest Saturdays this month. I got those tasks taken care of. I also have several new sales set up this Sunday because I found out Sundays between 6-10 p.m. Eastern is when most users are online around that time frame. That explains how I have a sudden rush of active sales. With the weekend coming up, I have a video from this past week to share.

I also have another feature model photoshoot set up this Monday. It’s due to the fact that one of the goto venues I’ve used in the past was not available at the timeframe I needed. That’s not the only scheduling update to share. I just added some new events for 2019 on the calendar page. I also made some changes to the Divas-N-Rides store.
