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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
