Just made my first and only trip over there.  She has some serious entitlement issues, and quite honestly, she just makes me want to stab myself in the face.  

 

Oh, and she's boring as shit.  GOMI, b***h.

Just took a peek…omg she's SO NEGATIVE. Like, spend less time complaining & leeching off others and more time APPLYING FOR JOBS, you nitwit. 

 

I like in that judge-y "At least I didn't…" post that she says "the last customer I had before I quit." Lazy cow.

April 22: Blog on hold.

April 24: I don't want to give up, but I'm not sure.

Insecure, negative, AND boring. What a winner.

I don't know where she got so many helpful commenters leaving constructive advice, but she shuts every one of them down.

In this post, someone recommended she start researching jobs on Google, and she said that the jobs she saw "[aren't] going to pay my student loans or fly me to Hawaii and San Francisco, that's for sure."

Then someone told her to invest the time she has in her craft, and the response was "I am not going to write for free. Writing takes energy, and I'm not going to put that energy in for no pay. I need my work respected just like everyone else, and working for free is not that."

"C," if you end up here after looking at your logs:

1. Invest in yourself.  Hone your craft.  If you aren't working, you have time to spend practicing.  Go to the library and read books, both ones you'd like to emulate and ones on how to become a better writer.

2. Develop a more professional blog and put together a portfolio under your real name.  You have material, make yourself into a genuine personal finance blogger.  As-is, I don't think I'd reach out to hire you based on the material on this blog.  Things like the "at least I haven't…" exercise come off as very juvenile and judgmental.

3. Put something together and pitch some sites.  Everything you talk about on your blog – your relationship with your mom, your financial issues, your struggles with anxiety, your experiences with underemployment – is something someone of our generation can relate to if well-written.  Even if it's free, get your name out there.

This is horrible. As in, this is so horrible it has to be a joke… Right?

She is where she is because of her own doing. Her complaining that she knowingly parked illegally thinking that she wouldn't get caught makes me think she's just scamming everyone and waiting for a reaction.

Wow, she is the most hostile blogger I've ever come across.  Why do any of those readers/commenters even bother wasting their time?  Her attitude blows.

Holy sheet, what an absolute train wreck. What gets me is there are some absolute saints in her comments section, who seem to really want to see her succeed and are providing all this helpful information and the way she replies to them…..why do they even bother?!

She's a mess and I see people offering her help and suggestions and advice and I just want to throw up. I still can't stop looking though.

Think my blood pressure just shot up reading a few of those posts.

 

One of my favorites (paraphrased, because her writing's too banal to copy):

"I hate people whose parents paid for their tuition, and they suck because now they owe a debt that they can never repay to their parents. They don't know what it's like to work late hours to pay for school (I don't either but that's besides the point)."

 

Emphasis mine. Jesus Christ. Also, her grandma is paying for her apartment.

28 and already filed for bankruptcy! How pathetic. 

I will give her credit for making this blog anonymous. That might be the only intelligent thing she has ever done. 

Also, where is she? She mentions that the nearest PNC is in New York and she can't get to it…how join a bank you can't get too?

Just saw this in the comments of Wednesday's post! This is in response to a blog friend offering to host her more professional blog!

 

"Kara, you weren't online, but I sent you a message saying yes. But I need some time to figure a few things out first. What to call my blog, how I'm going to present myself, write, so it doesn't become a disaster like this blog.

And unfortunately, I have to cut all ties to this blog. Just today I found a hate site and someone was discussing my blog on it. I've had 1600 visitors in the past 24 hours, all from the site. Needless to say, I need to leave ALL the crap behind, including many unwanted readers."

 

Kara has a good response, asking her why she always runs away when someone says something mean about her. Wow!

Wow. What a bunch of nice, PATIENT, not to mention complete strangers on the internet willing to help her out – makes you wonder how many other opportunities she's had in real life that she's turned down because of "haters" or something that is "not her fault."

I certainly get everyone's lives are different, with their unique stumbling blocks and bankruptcy by 28 is not necessarily something to be ashamed of…but in this case, for as much as she thinks she "deserves" a well-paying job as a writer, I am thinking she might "deserve" her current situation.
