So You Want to Be an Internet Star?

'I wanted to be an Instagram star... but I ended up a financial wreck': Woman, 26, reveals how her debts spiraled as she paid for luxury holidays, the best clothes and amazing restaurants on her quest to be a social media star
A woman who tried to make her life Instagram worthy went flat-broke in the process.

Lissette Calveiro, who is now 26-years-old, moved to New York for an internship in 2013 and said she felt she was living the 'Sex and the City' dream.

The only problem was she was going broke trying to keep up appearances on social media with brunches, new outfits, and jet setting, all to impress her followers.

Her internship only provided a travel stipend, so she worked a part time retail job to supplement her income that went entirely to her quest for photo lifestyle perfection.

After her New York City internship, she moved home to her parents place in Miami where she was working in public relations. After, she accepted a job and returned to the Big Apple for another PR gig that allowed her to keep chasing the Sex in the City Instagram-dream.

She currently has more than 12,000 followers on Instagram.

'I was shopping... for clothes to take "the perfect gram."'

She says that despite moving back to Miami and getting a full-time job as a publicist Calveiro was $10,000 in debt trying to keep up on Instagram.

'I was living above my means,' she said.

Her expenditures trying to cultivate the perfect looking life were enormous, with $200 monthly shopping sprees so she'd never show the same outfit, and a monthly splurge on a designer item like a $1,000 Louis Vuitton purse or an accessory from Kate Spade.

On top of that, she had to show she traveled.

She says her biggest travel expense was a $700 round-trip ticket to Austin, Texas, for a Sia concert in 2016.
You have my sympathies, much like all the black kids who ruin there lives planning on a career in the the NFL and NBA.

Of course, it could be worse. You could have the liberal media sic ISIS on you: The Left Is Attacking Free Speech — and Helping ISIS Target Its Enemies
Last week brought further attacks on free speech from the Left. Daily Beast reporter Taylor Lorenz doxxed the daughters of Pamela Geller. If you know Geller — and I’ve been her friend since 2007 — you know that it is a dishonest smear to call her “Muslim-hating.” She is a ferocious opponent of radical Islam, but she is also a defender of those innocent Muslims who are victims of radical Islam. This distinction doesn’t matter to leftist idiots like Taylor Lorenz, of course. Anyone who is identified as “right-wing” is considered fair game by the radical Left. Facts don’t matter, and neither does simple human decency:
Claudia Oshry - "The Girl with no Job"

The children of conservative commentator Pamela Geller have been harassed and their social media talk show has been canceled after the Daily Beast revealed Geller was their mother.
In her article titled, “The Instagram Stars Hiding Their Famous, Muslim-Hating Mom, Pamela Geller,” the Daily Beast’s Taylor Lorenz doxed the women as Pamela Geller’s daughters. They had not disclosed the family link, perhaps due to the recurring death threats from Muslim extremists that Geller receives.

The police intercepted and killed heavily armed ISIS inspired terrorists who intended to kill Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders at a public event in Garland, Texas. This is real serious threat of terror.
Following the release of Lorenz’s article, which was heavily criticized on social media, Geller’s four children immediately began to receive harassment and violent messages.
Comments included: “Racist piece of shit!,” “Fuck you, racist,” “Racist bitch,” and “Swine,” the majority of which was sent to Geller’s most famous daughter, Claudia, who runs the popular Instagram account “girlwithnojob” which has 2.8 million followers.

Not exactly a theme connected with conservatism.
Think about this for a minute: Claudia Oshry spent years building a massive online audience with a non-political message, entirely separate from and unrelated to her mother’s popular conservative blog. Yet the tie of kinship was used as an excuse to attack Claudia and her siblings, because of their mother’s alleged “Islamophobia.” My own children, incidentally, have at times been harassed by my various left-wing enemies. My general attitude toward evil trolls is “never let them see you sweat” — these monsters take sadistic pleasure in thinking they’ve inflicted suffering on their targets — but a few years ago, the FBI arrested one of my harassers who was sent to federal prison as a result.

I'm quite proud of my internet stardom. I must be up to over $50 income in 5 years or so from the Amazon Associates thing. It's a good thing I'm not counting on this for my retirement.
