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!

Throttle Thursday Summer Wind Down #1

Advertisements

Last Week, I had several photoshoots scheduled alongside a few automotive events in the DC Region. I had two completed photoshoots but had two canceled due to 2 different illnesses. I did a new spot for future photoshoots, thanks to Peerspace! I had to move resources to other activities like getting the gear ready for Race Motive and Dream Fest at Maryland International Raceway. I got a photo set back in March and posted it to the eye candy section. I’m clearing out most of the memory cards with images that didn’t upload. Soon, I’ll post photos from this past spring and summer will be published in the next few days. I also updated the events schedule with new spots coming up. Finally, Bentbox chose 2 (18+) of my boxes (18+) for their featured boxes collection. I just posted a new package to my Bentbox account (18+).

From Daily Drive To Weekly Drive!

Advertisements

It’s been a while since I added anything to the Daily Drive. Another case of life getting more of my attention than usual. I made efforts to post items here. However, my schedule keeps changing at the last minute more often than not. Instead, I’m going to change it to the weekly Drive. The Weekly Drive is a 3 times a week blog post where it will review changes to the website. That includes peeks into the photo galleries. It also updates event coverage, store designs, new product listings, and more. I just completed the Kleen Edition gallery. Now, I need to the highlights XDA Racing event last week posted. Now, I need to get the feature model gallery updated since some of the previous photoshoots were uploaded on my computer. I’m working to make the office space here more optimized and efficient to get content out sooner and reduce delays. I’ll have more news about this later.

H-Day Turbo Tuedsay

Happy Tuesday! It’s Turbo Tuesday Rebooted! I’ve attended 4 H-Day events in the past. I either attend the Saturday or Sunday portion of the show. I finally got a chance to attend both days of H-Day at Maryland International Raceway. I finished the 1st page of the event galleries. There’ll be 4 pages of content from this event nearly 2 weeks ago. It’s clear there is more great content from this event to share with everyone who loves these types of events. I can thank Betterment and Yotta for helping me save up to afford the tickets. I updated the events page for future events as the weather starts to warm up. I’m also getting funding help from my eBay store. I recently added a new inventory for those looking to upgrade their summer fun itinerary. I’m getting back to spring cleaning to have space for summer fun in the next few weeks.

Whole Yotta Money on Turbo Tuesadys

Advertisements

This website has been working to create a dedicated revenue stream to cover events, equipment, and the talent booked for the numerous photo galleries that get posted to the website. I also created another source to store money for future goals. That source is the online bank called Yotta. I came across the online savings account in a Medium article. It’s clear that having another online account alongside Betterment and Stash sounds like a net positive. I opened an account back in the fall of 2020, and it has been a blessing in my life. I was able to pay outstanding debts with the money deposited and won. Here’s the lowdown on this bank. You earn tickets from the amount of money you deposited. The goal is to match 3 or more tickets to win money. I did $0.75 when the Yotta Red Ball matched 2 numbers, $0.15 when I matched the red ball, or 3 tickets matched. Now, they have expanded their operations to debit cards. I entered tickets with purchases like my visit to the 2022 Washington Auto Show. Last week, I entered 400 tickets either from a purchase or a link I shared on social media. I choose to break it down to 100 tickets a week. Therefore, I have more chances to win without worrying about cash flow issues. That means more focus on events and feature model photosets.

Throttle Thursday Reboots

The Daily Drive has been rebranded to specific days as a result of the updated schedules and availability. I finally got images from the 2022 Washington Auto Show uploaded this week. It’s great to get the 1st event gallery for 2022 uploaded is exciting. I’m also finally catching up on a good portion of the feature model gallery from last year posted on this website. I plan to get a few more feature model galleries posted either this weekend or days before another photoshoot takes place next week. I also made some changes to my Bonanza account a few weeks ago. I’m now making changes to the many revenue sources to support the website besides the official online store here. I feel much better with the potential of watching this revenue stream relaunched to create new opportunities for future fans to enjoy.

Turbo Tuesday Restarted 1

Advertisements

I just finished putting the finishing touches on one of my car show galleries from last year. Now, I have room to set up the 2022 Car Show Galleries section. I’m also working on adding new feature model galleries to get the 2022 feature model section up and running. Several photoshoots from last year are still in the post-production stage. The Washington Auto Show is now playing until Sunday. On top of that, The Maryland Auto Show is happening this weekend. Last year, this is was not an option due to the global pandemic. The pandemic is still here, and I took the necessary steps to stay safe as I create new content weekly. 

Thursday Throttle Restarted

It’s been a crazy 1st month of 2022. My phone was out of order for a week. It turns out it needed a new battery, and it’s now functional. I had to clean up from 2 snowstorms. My other sources of income dealt with a normal slowdown from an active December 2021.  On top of that, I just had 2 scheduled photoshoots rescheduled due to Covid-19 issues. I did get 1 feature model photo shoot completed this month with another one scheduled next week. I also have several car show galleries posted online. I’m on the verge of creating a 2022 Car Show gallery with the Washington Auto Show returning after a year off. I also got the uncensored set (18+) from this photoshoot last summer sold! Stay tuned for another feature model gallery posted!

Weekend Drive End of Year Special

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year, Divas-N-Rides fans! For those wondering what was up with the radio silence, I was preoccupied with prior commitments over the last few months. I was able to update the events calendar section on the website for the 2022 calendar year. It’s still a work in progress as new events get added. However with news of the latest development in the global pandemic, there’s a good chance some events will be changed in response to the everchanging health crisis. I also added new content to the website. I added some new galleries with the models I worked with this past summer and fall. I also posted a few events I attended in 2021.  Finally, the folks at YottaSavings put together this coll song recapping my 2021. It’s called #YottaRapped! It’s so wild and funny that I had to share it with you. Also, if you want big with Yotta, sign up using my promo code Aaron174.

Daily Drive Relaunched Fast Track Fridays!

Advertisements

Welcome to the latest edition of the newly relaunched Daily Drive. It’s Fast Track Fridays. Since I had some unexpected free time this week, I’m in the process of adding new content to several sections of the website. Divas-N-Rides isn’t the only place I create content. I made content for other websites as a way to create a revenue source that helps finance this website and many of its activities. I recently got a few emails from a website where I share content that’s the polar opposite of what gets posted on Divas-N-Rides. I was able to get a few new boxes on sale like this photo set (18+) I created this evening. That wasn’t the only photo box created this evening (18+)! I’m now catching up on all the other auto shows and photoshoots I did this summer that are still in post-production at this moment.

The Daily Drive Turbo Tuesday Reboot

Advertisements

Welcome to Turbo Tuesdays on Divas-N-Rides! If you noticed the long delays between posts, it’s due to a few changes in my work and life situations. I took some much-needed time off from my primary income source. I’m also working on revamping my sleep schedule because I’ve been falling asleep at awkward times in the day. That’s why took my birthday week from off my primary work. Here’s an update on the feature models and events galleries I’ve worked on the past few days. I posted several events that this website covered this summer. Among the new galleries on the Divas-N-Rides homepage is the XDA/WPGC Bike Fest, The 1st few pages of the Clean Culture/Import Expo FedEx Field Festival, Bombers Car Club presents S.A.L Laurel AL Post 60 Car Show, and The Old Town Style and Speed Show. I also successfully completed a feature model photoshoot. I’ll have it posted before Thursday.
