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.

Good Evening! April is gone, and we’re now in May now! It’s clear that my 1st trip to MIR this year will be at the end of the month. With the stay at home orders still active, Memorial Day Weekend could be the earliest they’ll see events resume. This or any activity in the region is up in the air until regional leaders collectively find a timeframe to get DC/MD/VA to ease up on restrictions once all 3 jurisdictions get the curve to flatten and then some. Okay, it’s clear quarantine fatigue is getting real. Here’s the deal! The normal we were used to won’t be returning anytime soon. Even if the curve flattens before Memorial Day and all 3 stages of reopening is complete, it won’t be the same. Sure, some events will happen or get a new date. However, we better prepare for the new reality that’s coming on the other side of this! Sure this isn’t the usual blog post I make. However, the extra time I have now will make me make the moves that I should have done weeks ago. One way to keep followers active is to use your available time to learn new skills at Skillshare! Oh, by the way, I made some updates on this revenue stream based on the activities that occurred last month. I’m also launching a series of new sales on this revenue stream this Sunday to kick start cash flow and revenue. The goal is to have enough funds available when the car show and cruise season get back up and running. Finally, Flashback Friday has been relaunched! The newest post can be found here!

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.

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!

It’s been an active week for the D.N.R family. If you didn’t get to see the images galleries last weekend, We got them on this link and this link. I also spend the last few days getting the event calendar updated with all the new events that were posted. Some events were booked months in advance. I also got another eye-candy gallery up and running this week. There will be another feature model gallery psoted before the week is up. Most of the reason I haven’t been posting is that one of my revenue streams required my undivided attention. To make a long story short, It was one of the busiest Saturdays this month. I got those tasks taken care of. I also have several new sales set up this Sunday because I found out Sundays between 6-10 p.m. Eastern is when most users are online around that time frame. That explains how I have a sudden rush of active sales. With the weekend coming up, I have a video from this past week to share.

Good Afternoon! I spent the good part of this day adding a new gallery to the website. I’m catching up on the images I created, and I’m also getting ready for the cooler weather to arrive. I also have another feature model photoshoot set up this Monday. It’s due to the fact that one of the goto venues I’ve used in the past was not available at the timeframe I needed. That’s not the only scheduling update to share. I just added some new events for 2019 on the calendar page. I also made some changes to the Divas-N-Rides store. I just added some new graphics added this week. I plan to add new graphics to test which design will produce the best sales. Now, we got another great video to share.

Good Evening! I just added a brand new event gallery from this past weekend before my latest photoshoot today. Before that, I came across this article about an unlikely and very popular holiday in China that is popular with retailers in the region. To make a long story short, it was specially created by college students as their version of Single Awareness Day. For a more current American holiday, Subaru is holding a special day for the underdogs 2 weeks from now. Here’s a video from last weekend’s event!

Good Afternoon! It’s the weekend edition. I just finished another feature gallery page this week. If you haven’t got a chance to see, now is a great time. I got another big event to cover this weekend. I also have other car shows and motorcycle shows to check out this month. If you’re wondering what’s happening outside the website, I made some changes to one of my revenue sources. I also have another revenue source that was updated earlier this week. With each revenue source updated, I can have more funds for future events. You can also stop by our Patreon Page as we add new content this weekend. Finally, we got a video to share to start your weekend!

Happy Tuesday! It’s a new month and a new mission for this website. There are only 2 months left in the year. I just finished putting together another set of galleries. You can check the latest galleries from last weekend like Hot Wheels for Hot Meals and PWC 100 Car Pileup. I also have updated the event calendar to cover more events before the calendar year is up. I got an event before the weekend is very rare to website. I’m close to finishing another feature model gallery before the week is over. I’m also working on updating the Patreon page this week. We finish this post with the latest video from our Youtube page.
