The Daily Drive: 04/16/20

Good Morning! I just upgraded the website this morning. Now, I can add more photos, videos, and other content that adds value to the website and its loyal viewers, fans, etc. I got the 1st of many photos from the 2020 Washington Auto Show posted today. It’s been long overdue for that content to be available for viewing. With that out of the way, I had to make some small, but significant changes to the events calendar. Cruisin’ Ocean City and Ocean Car Car Show have been canceled for 2020. I had to replace them with other events. However, there’s no clue when the stay at home orders are ending. Heck, we have no clue when the ban on public gatherings will be lifted. FedEx Festival is scheduled in 3 weeks. I haven’t heard any words on when will this event go on as scheduled or moved to a later date before the new NFL season starts.

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!
