Turn Your Blog Into 
a Six-Figure Business in 2020

All while working from home on a flexible schedule
that gives you the freedom 
to live your dream life


If you’re a side-hustling blogger looking to make more money by working less, then you probably already know you need to improve your blogging strategy — or create one from scratch.

But where do you actually begin?

If done right, you CAN turn your hobby blog (or budding blog idea) into a profitable business.

One that gives you freedom from overwhelm so you can live life on YOUR terms, whether that means...

 Working from home (or anywhere!)

 Having a flexible schedule

 Financially contributing to your family

 Paying off debt and student loans

Traveling the world (location independence!)

Making substantial income while you sleep

 Building a six-figure online empire that impacts hundreds of thousands of people


Welcome to the Six-Figure Blog Academy!

Have you ever seen super successful bloggers or influencers and wondered, “How the heck are they making so much money?”

Well the secret’s out. 

The Six-Figure Blog Academy is the only roadmap you need to make money blogging about what you love.


In this online course, I’m going to show you EXACTLY how I made $150,000 in my third year of blogging — nearly $60,000 of which came in while I was on maternity leave for four months.


You’ll get the actual strategies I’ve used to grow my following to over 50,000 email subscribers, 75,000 social media followers, and 125,000 unique monthly visitors — which together have allowed me to create consistent (and growing) six-figure revenues each year. 

All this is possible for you, too.

And I’m going to show you EXACTLY how to do it.


“I have implemented many 6FBA strategies over the last month, which has caused my pageviews to rise by 25% and my affiliate marketing income to rise by 400%. I’ve [also seen my ad income] increase by about $100/month every month… I truly think 6FBA is one of the most — if not THE most — comprehensive courses for bloggers.” — Kristina Todini, forkintheroad.co

"After just the first day of going through the course, I signed two new brands that I had been stuck on how to word the deal with. Now, we are working together for the rest of 2019 and all year for 2020. ALL IN ONE DAY. Kate, you are rocking my world. Thank you so much. I love it so much. I really am going to recommend this to ANYONE. Thank you and you did a fantastic job at explaining every part. Even for a "not new" blogger, it was more than helpful to go back and do things I never have. I credit the success I will see soon, to you!" — Ashlee Rowland, simplholistic.org

Time for some real talk: Most blogs fail.

But guess what? Yours doesn’t have to.

I'm going to show you how to be the outlier.


You’re trying to do #allthethings. 

You can’t seem to figure out what will actually move the needle for your blog, so you try to do it all (and at the same time to boot).

Your to-do list is never-ending. 

You don’t know where to start. You’re stuck in an unproductive cycle of analysis paralysis and don’t actually DO anything.

Imposter syndrome is rearing its ugly head.

You’re starting to question yourself and your expertise. Why would anyone want to read YOUR blog? What makes you different than other, more successful bloggers in your space?

I can relate! In fact, in my first year of blogging, I was doing allthethings. Burnout was my middle name. I was constantly doubting myself, wanting to quit, and making no money.

Then I started ignoring those voices in my head — you know, the same ones telling you you can’t be a successful blogger. Here’s the thing: they’re just voices. Limiting beliefs. Our comfort zone lying to us to maintain the status quo.

But where’s the fun in that?

You know what’s actually fun?

When I turned my blog from side-hustle into six-figure business. That’s right: business. I switched gears and started treating my blog like the money-making enterprise it is today. And I devoted that second year to discovering the proverbial “secret sauce” of successful blogging — researching, testing, experimenting to find what works and what doesn’t. 

But here’s the thing... there is no secret sauce. 

No magic wand.

No luck-of-the-blogger-draw.


Instead, there are strategies and action plans and tips and tools that together can turn blogging from hobby to thriving business. Which is exactly what happened to me. In fact, I made $75,000 my second year, $150,000 my third, and nearly $200,000 this past year, 2019.

YOU can do it, too.

YOUR voice matters. You CAN say goodbye to the overwhelm, get out of decision fatigue and make your own impact on the blogosphere. 


You just need the right guidance.

Which is exactly what the Six-Figure Blog Academy will provide. 


I created this course for bloggers just like you who are looking for a clear roadmap to success. Who need the right answers to the right questions, a step-by-step guide of what’s worth focusing on now and what’s just a waste of time and money. 

If you’re serious about growing your blog — or starting one from scratch the right way — then the Six-Figure Blog Academy is for you. I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from existing professional bloggers, successful online entrepreneurs, my own trials and errors as well as my expertise as a freelance journalist to show you what's worth your time — and what’s not. 

At the end of the day, the Six-Figure Blog Academy is your roadmap. Better yet, it’s the closest thing to “secret sauce” you’re going to find on the market.

Don’t just take my word for it.

Kelsey from forkingscrumptious.com made money for the first time ever thanks to 6FBA:

“I LOVED every single thing about this course. Kate was able to communicate valuable information in such a direct and approachable way, as well as provided action items to hold me accountable. I have implemented quite a few strategies outlined in the course that have totally changed the direction of my business, and lit a whole new passion for the direction it’s taking. And last month, I made money for the first time ever!

Maureen, a working mom and brand-new blogger, earned back the price of 6FBA in her first 30 days as a student.

Did I mention she didn’t even have a blog when she started? Catch her 6FBA success story in the video below.


So Who Is This Blogging Expert Promising You BIG Results?


Hiya! I’m Kate Kordsmeier, your teacher.

I wear a lot of hats. I’m a wife to Matt, a mom to Jackson (and a baby girl come May 2020), and head zookeeper to our dog, Finch, and cats, Scout and Boo (yes, like the book!). 

I’m an entrepreneur, a blogger at Root + Revel, a twice-published cookbook author, a journalist with articles in over 125 magazines and newspapers, and the CEO (that’s Chief Everything Officer) of my company. 

But let me get real honest for a minute: I haven’t always had a successful blog and business.

When I graduated from college with a degree in magazine journalism, I knew I wasn’t cut out for corporate America. In fact, it took all of four months for me to realize the cube life was not for me. So I quit my stable job to be a freelance journalist covering food and travel. Now that was no cake walk, but at least I could set my own hours, travel the world, and eat delicious food. 

Still, I was beholden to editors, their advertisers, and their needs. I spent just as much time writing as I did pitching stories — and getting rejected. Couple that with diminishing budgets, increasing demands, cranky and thankless editors, and a body that couldn't handle the constant travel and eating-out, and I knew I needed a change.

So, I started Root + Revel, an holistic wellness blog, at the end of 2015. I won’t sugarcoat it… that first year was B-L-E-A-K! I was working constantly, burning the candle at both ends and, honestly, getting nowhere. Except to burnout in a hurry, that is.

But then, things changed.

After A LOT of trial and error, I started to develop a system to turn my blog into an insanely profitable business. And it actually worked! I just finished my fourth year and, to date, have made nearly $450,000. Not only has my blog been wildly successful revenue-wise, but I’m finally writing the stories I want to tell, I’m helping others to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives, and I’m doing it all ON MY OWN TERMS.

After reaching a six-figure income in just my third year of blogging, I knew I had something valuable to share about making money online. About turning your passions into a thriving business. All while doing what you love in the comfort of your jammies, on a beach in the Caribbean, at your favorite coffee shop, or wherever you damn well please because YOU CAN LIVE LIFE ON YOUR OWN TERMS, TOO.

That’s why I created the Six-Figure Blog Academy.

You’re In the Right Place If…

 The Six-Figure Blog Academy is designed for experienced and newbie bloggers who are serious about making money. But like I said earlier, success isn’t going to happen overnight. And it’s not going to happen for free. 

I’m going to be real with you. As with any business — any hobby, even — you have to consider start-up costs and other growth investments. You’ve heard the saying: “You have to spend money to make money.”

This is true for blogging, too. Especially blogging as a business.

So if you’re ready to invest in the future of your blogging business, to make a small investment now in order to achieve more profitable affiliate relationships and more lucrative sponsorship deals in the future, for example, then Six-Figure Blog Academy is for you.


And if you’re ready to…


   See where and how to have the greatest impact on your growth

   Increase automation and improve output so you can make more money by working less

    Learn new strategies to grow your followers, traffic and pageviews

   Save countless hours by following a proven method for growth (versus spending all your precious time trying a million things that don't work)

   Say goodbye to perfectionism, overwhelm, and the frantic hustle

   Ignore those voices telling you you don’t have time, you’re not a writer, you lack the necessary expertise, your friends and family won’t take you seriously, [insert limiting belief of choice here]

Then you know what to do next...



Course Curriculum

The Six-Figure Blog Academy will teach you everything you need to know to start making serious money from your blog.

As part of the course, you’ll get lifetime access to 8 modules and 50+ lessons covering everything from basic blog set up, to creating killer content, to setting up multiple revenue streams. You’ll also have access to 45 plug-and-play templates for just about anything you need to grow, like sponsored content pitches, product sample requests, the perfect rejection responses, PR outreach, media kits, campaign templates, and more. 

Here’s a look at the full course curriculum — and the special bonus content that comes with it (like 12 weeks of live group coaching with yours truly!):

  But that’s not all!

When you enroll today, you’ll receive nearly $4,000 in bonuses, including:



Each week for 12 weeks, Kate will host a live coaching call focusing on a particular topic around blogging and business. These trainings will end with a live Q&A where you can get direct and immediate feedback from Kate herself. There will also be three guest experts to talk about money mindset and blogging finances, SEO, and Instagram.



A members-only group for 6FBA students to connect with each other, share thoughts and insights, ask questions, get feedback, network and collaborate, and more. In addition, a member of our team (often myself) will respond to questions and offer special 1:1 coaching in the process.





If social media gives you anxiety, look no further. I teamed up with my personal Instagram Manager, Molly Cahill, to help you more efficiently leverage Instagram to grow your blog — and your business. We’re lifting the curtain on the IG algorithm so you can focus on what will actually move the needle. Hint: it’s not what you think.





Calling all lifestyle bloggers! Learn how to make money while doing good in the world with Beautycounter. No, it’s not about harassing friends and family to buy from you or becoming a sleazy MLM rep. This training will teach you how to use Beautycounter like an affiliate program on your blog. You can make $1,500/month like me, $4,000/month like my mentor, or $15,000/month like my team lead (did I mention we each share our tips in this video?!).





If you’ve thought about starting a podcast alongside your blog, you’re going to want this training with Bjork Ostrom from Pinch of Yum and Food Blogger Pro fame. You’ll learn the ins and outs of podcasting, like how and when to start, what tools, equipment and software you’ll need, how to create sponsor-worthy content, attract guests, and so much more.




“After taking other courses, I can honestly say that this is the most comprehensive course available. Kate has done an amazing job of covering what is important, whether you are new to blogging or a seasoned blogger… It is definitely an amazing value for the price.”
-Dina-Marie Oswald, myculturedpalate.com

“The Six-Figure Blog Academy is one of the best courses I’ve ever taken… I’ve already implemented some of her techniques and have seen my blog grow in just a few short weeks… The value of this course far exceeds the price - think of it like getting an MBA in how to launch and grow your blog from one of the best.
- Shannah Compton Game, Millennial Money Podcast

More Frequently Asked Questions

The course starts now and never ends. It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. Depending on where you are when you start and how much time you can devote to your blog, you should be able to complete the course in 4-8 weeks.

How does lifetime access sound? You have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. This course won’t always be offered at this price, as new strategies and information will continually be added. But once you buy, you won’t have to pay a penny for any updates (you’ll get though fo’ FREE!).

Great question. The course materials are shared as written content (i.e. it’s all text-based and can be viewed on any device), with a few how-to videos thrown in for good measure. There are also fillable spreadsheets, action plan worksheets and PDF bonuses galore.

This depends on a lot of variables, including how quickly you get through the course, how dedicated you are to making this happen, how much time you can devote to your blog, etc. The important thing to note here is that this is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. I’ve done a lot of the heavy lifting for you, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to do anything. If you follow the lessons, do the homework, and implement the strategies I’ve thoughtfully laid out, I am confident you will be making money in no time.

Not sure if this course is right for you? Well, I’m giving you an entire MONTH to try it out, risk-free. If you reach out within 30 days of enrollment to let me know that you’re not seeing any growth with the program, I’ll happily give you a full refund. I’m offering this money-back guarantee because I believe so strongly in the content of the course and I know that if you implement the strategies, you WILL see results. I want you to see how game-changing it can be.

What a great way to start your blogging career! So many of us spend the first few years of blogging treating it like a hobby (not a business) and just slapping up content, hoping someone will magically find us. By starting your blog with my innovative strategies, you’re much more likely to turn your blog into a profitable business AND in a much shorter time. Some bloggers will tell you it takes nearly a decade to start earning significant income from your blog. Yeah, if you're not treating it like a business. But I was able to turn my blog into a full-time income after just 1 year and I know you can too! Sure, it might take a few months to lay the groundwork and implement the strategies covered in the course, but you’ve gotta do that anyway, right? Might as well make sure that you do it right the first time, and save yourself countless wasted hours. Learn from my mistakes and discover the best ways to start making an income blogging.

Well then, kudos to you! But I'm going to take a shot in the dark here and guess that if your blog was everything you wanted it to be, you wouldn't have wound up on this course page...amiright? This course is for newbies and old pros alike, as we always have something new we can learn. Still not sure this course is right for you? The questions I recommend asking yourself are: Are you making as much money as you can from your blog? Do you want to quit your full-time job this year? Do you want your blog to be more effective? If yes, then this course is for you! Keep in mind that you’ll also be learning from a blogger who has already grown multiple 6-figure businesses and has the knowledge that will be invaluable to your growth and will ensure you're not leaving money on the table!

Basically, if your audience uses the internet, this program will work for you. While a lot of my students (and myself) run food-related blogs, this course truly applies to any niche, including health, fitness and nutrition, fashion, interior design and lifestyle, DIY and crafts, business, travel, and more!

If you don't see your question here, please send me an email at [email protected], and I will answer any question, big or small, that you may have!
