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 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.
