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.

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!

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!
