About Divas-N-Rides

I'm a DC based photo enthusiasts who loves cars, trucks, motorcycles and anything with an motor inside. I started this website in 2005 focusing on 2 items I love: beautiful women and automotive/motorcycle culture. It's been a crazy journey over this past decade. I plan to return to what I love this year after a brief hiatus!

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.
