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.

Happy Tuesday! Still here with all of those who supported us since the website’s rebirth back in 2017. This month marks 15 years since the original Divas-N-Rides was born. It’s been a wild ride, but it’s amazing this project is thriving throughout the decade and a half in action. I’ve been spending more time doing spring cleaning around my place. While the 1st source of website revenue stream had some hits and misses this month, We’re getting some traction from another revenue stream that saw some steady growth in the last few weeks. I’m focusing on the events calendar and the galleries. I also plan to relaunch Flashback Fridays before the week is up. I’m in the process of examining several media storage devices to find any galleries that didn’t get posted in the past. This is where you can see the site before moving to WordPress! Check the next posting or visit for details.

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.

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!

Good Afternoon or Good Evening, whenever you’re reading this. The 1st car show gallery of 2020 is now live on the website. This was so big I needed another photo gallery to cover the whole event. With that being said, I was working on the photo gallery when I heard that Kobe Bryant passed away. I think it was real until more news surfaced to confirm the worse. What makes this story heartbreaking was he, his daughter and members of basketball teams and their families were on the helicopter heading to basketball game. The one thing that made respect Kobe was his winning mindset. He operated with a win at all cost attitude. I also learned he was more interested in the process than the results. I also learned watched game films from a radio ad a few years ago. This hunger to do better was what made him a legend. He also took that with him in the post-basketball career. Too bad, the life after basketball part was gone too soon!

Good Afternoon, evening, or whenever you read this. It’s the 1st blog of 2020. I spent New Year’s Day promoting one feature model page while finishing up another feature model page. I was able to get this feature model gallery posted before 2019 was over. I got 2 photo shoots officially set up this month. I might some more booked either later this or next month depending on circumstances. I also spent some time offline finding new items to sell on either my eBay Store or Bonanza Marketplace Booth. I’ve been working on boosting my revenue streams to help fund the website without incurring any new debts that could keep it from expanding. Therefore, this website can check out more events happening this year and beyond. Some have there 2020 schedule up and running. This website is updating it each and every day. Let’s end this post with another favorite video on the Divas-N-Rides Youtube Channel!

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening! This is the final Daily Drive of 2019. It’s been a good year. With all the ups and downs I went through this year, I plan to make better moves to increase the visibility and profitability of the website. I just finished uploading the following feature model gallery. The Lauren Leola gallery is uploaded. The Karly Salinas Gallery is uploaded! If you plan to have any of our merchandise in our home in the new year, you can visit our Official Divas-N-Rides store.  I’m working on a few new galleries right now, and I plan to post them before the night is over. I’m gonna end this post by replaying one of the most-watched videos in the Divas-N-Rides Youtube Channel!

Good Afternoon! I’m in the process of doing a fall clean-up with both Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching. I also have a few feature model galleries that need to be completed for the month of November. Recently, I have been successful with one of the revenue streams in the past 4 days. Even though I added a new inventory for sale, I’m having issues with getting steady cash flow for the store. At least, I have several backup revenue streams in place to ensure this website will never run short of funding. Once I get those issues resolved, I’ll have more free time to take of the things I need to do.
