Let me guess! You're the kind of person who longs to express yourself creatively AND have full creative control of your work. You dream of quitting your day job, fleeing that monotonous 9-to-5 cube life and finally living life on your own terms. You know you've got the knowledge and skills that people need and you yearn to give back and help others.

What if you could do all of the above while also making a six-figure income AND have the time, flexibility and freedom to enjoy your dream life?

What if the solution was simple? Spoiler alert: IT IS!


You don't need to just give it away--you deserve to be paid for your work, and I'm confident you can earn a full-time income from your blog because your time and knowledge are valuable.

YOU are valuable!

I’ll show you how with my proven roadmap. Let's go!




If you’ve been blogging and trying to make money online, it can be really frustrating to see other people seemingly having it all figured out, making a generous six-figure income, with the flexibility to work anywhere or anytime they want (or not!), and all while seemingly sipping mai tais on a beach in Thailand.

Are they even working at all?!

Meanwhile, you just don’t know what’s going to move the needle the most for your business and actually create a sustainable income, so you’re left workin’ REAL HARD trying to do allthethings, but it’s like crossing your fingers and shooting in the dark.

It worked for your best friend’s sister-in-law’s cousin, so why isn’t it working for you?!? Somehow, after all this effort, you’re still left feeling overwhelmed, spread thin, stressed, and (if you’re really honest) jealous of those ‘career bloggers’.

Or maybe you’re new to blogging, and this whole lifestyle seems like a pipe dream that can’t possibly be real, or if it is, it’s only for an elite few that have special skill sets and got super lucky. Maybe you started researching how this, too, could be you - only to throw your laptop down in frustration as you got paralyzed trying to figure out what steps you need to take to make this dream a reality. It’s just too damn intimidating!

I have a secret: those successful bloggers don’t have a magical secret sauce, superpowers, or elves working in their blogging workshop. They’re just people, like you and me, who authentically use certain tools and strategies to grow their business.

And I’m going to show you how to do just that.

You Can Make Money Blogging, Too!


Lemme be real with you: most blogs fail.


It’s not about luck. Thank God!

I want to introduce you to the secret weapon that will be a game changer in your blogging life...but only if you’re ready to trade the overwhelm and spinning hamster wheel for sustainability and six figures. Ready?

Welcome to the Six-Figure Blog Academy!

In this online course, I’m showing you the EXACT strategies I used and steps I’ve taken to grow my following to over 30,000 email subscribers, 75,000 social media followers, and my annual revenue to $150,000+ in just THREE years.

Creating a profitable blog is about learning and implementing the proven strategies for turning your blog into a business. Let's do this!

Don't Just Take My Word For It

Meet Maureen, a working mom and brand-new blogger who has already seen amazing results from 6FBA!

So here's the deal: six-figure bloggers do have a few tricks up their sleeve. But I'm going to peel back the curtain and show you just how they do it.

But first...I gotta be honest.

My system takes time and work. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and you won't find success overnight. BUT, your blog WILL make money IF you put in the work.

The good news: I’ve already done all the experiments, the trial and errors, and the legwork of researching, testing, and analyzing what works. And now you have the opportunity to use my exact same strategies to create your own profitable online empire.

Think about how much time and money you’d save by joining the Six-Figure Blog Academy... by finally knowing the EXACT path you need to take to reach your goals.

No more wondering where to start. No more analysis paralysis because the overwhelm and the never-ending to do list is just too much. No more burnout, debilitating perfectionism, or imposter syndrome fears.

Join now to take the guesswork out of blogging. Just use my foolproof system that is already proven to work and start rapidly growing your blog’s pageviews, revenue and profits, so you can live the life you’ve always dreamed about.

“The Six-Figure Blog Academy is one of the best courses I’ve ever taken! Everything that Kate does is top-notch, and this course is that and more. What I loved most is that Kate shows you the real behind-the-scenes information that you need to know to launch and grow your blog. She truly wants you to succeed, so she dishes what you need to know without the fluff that so many other courses have. She leads you step-by-step through some tricky topics like SEO and affiliate marketing. I’ve already implemented some of her techniques and have seen my blog grow in just a few short weeks. I LOVED the keyword section where you walk through the tools you use. This is a better explanation than any other course I've been through.I just love that Kate really SHOWS us how to do things and walks us through her process. This is a game changer in itself that so many courses leave off. 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

“Six-Figure Blog Academy is jam-packed full of great content with no absolutely no fluff. Although there is a lot to learn it's organized in such a well thought out way that it's not overwhelming. I was amazed to learn that we would have live video chats where Kate would answer any questions we have. That alone was worth the course cost!! I have begun implementing the weekly traffic action plan and am seeing my numbers slowly rise. The pitch templates were above and beyond what I expected and I'm very excited to start using some of the ideas! I thought the course was very well organized, very clear and direct, easy to navigate, and flowed well. I thought it was quite thorough and gave much more detail than I had even anticipated! The bonuses were really nice additions to the content--I actually think you over-delivered! I loved, loved, LOVED the content creation + SEO module. I learned so much more than I would ever have thought. Oh how wonderful it would have been to have had these instructions at the beginning of my blogging career, but better late than never. This will definitely be a game changer for me! I can't imagine anyone not wanting to take this course. There was so much jam packed in, I can't wait to now go back through slowly and make sure I'm absorbing and implementing all of it.” -Staci Ducharme, lifeatcobblehillfarm.com

“I have been blogging since 2009 and am just learning more about SEO. 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. I have learned so much and am encouraged to continue implementing what I have learned for further growth and influential reach. It is definitely an amazing value for the price. Like everything else Kate does, it is professional and very thorough!” -Dina-Marie Oswald, myculturedpalate.com

“So much of the information in this course was brand new to me and I feel like I hit a gold mine with it all. The course is easy to follow & understand, and Kate breaks it down to realistic action items. I‘m truly blown away by everything shared - the tips, tricks, what works, what doesn’t, etc. Kate’s a real wealth of knowledge when it comes to running a lucrative blog, and I 100% recommend taking this course to anyone and everyone who has interest in blogging.” --Kristen Carson, newbie blogger

“Kate is one smart blogger and I'm amazed at how openly she shares her methods in this program. Many people would hold back, but not Kate, she shares it all. 6FBA provides all the practical strategies you need to create a successful blog that actually makes money. I wish I'd started blogging with this program in hand. I would have saved so much time and started making money a lot sooner! Kate's teaching style is friendly and straight-forward. I love her attention to detail (she answered every question I had before I could even ask it). Each lesson is amazingly thorough. The real magic for me was found in the homework assignments. Have you taken courses but never done anything with the info you learned? I know I have! But not here. Kate crafted the assignments in a way that helped me implement what I learned and actually move forward. (Do not skip these! This is where the magic happens!). I've been working through the homework and am thrilled to be creating an action plan where I'm working smart and staying consistent. I'm able to enjoy blogging again and improve my bottom line. (Kate's advice on creating a welcome sequence actually helped me get more sales!) If you've ever wanted a plan of action for your blog, you'll love this. It's just like getting to pick Kate's brain on all things blogging and business except it's laid out in step-by-step order and you never have to worry about losing your notes!” --Stacy Karen, NoFussNatural.com


You don’t need to wait years to start making an income from your blog.

Heck, in year two, I made $75,000 by following this tried-and-trusted system that I’m going to teach you in the Six-Figure Blog Academy.

And perhaps the best part? You don’t even need to create online courses to make money.

I repeat: you can earn a SIX-FIGURE INCOME from your blog without having to figure out what you want to teach and doing all the hard work of creating, launching, marketing, and managing a course (trust me, it’s a lot of work!).

I want to show you how you, too, can make six figures from your blog without all that hassle, and more passively, through three main revenue streams: affiliate marketing, sponsored content, and ads.

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 my college sweetheart, and the head zookeeper at our house where our crazy Border Collie, Finch, is always chasing after our two cats, Scout and Boo (yes, like the book!), or our baby boy, Jackson (pictured here at a snuggly 2 weeks old).

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.

I got my start writing angsty poetry for my high school's literary magazine about my pathetic love life (or lack thereof), went on to pen many controversial political op-eds for the UGA student newspaper in college, and (despite my best rebellious efforts), I found myself in corporate America after graduation (I lasted all of 4 months before I realized cube life was not for me).

I then struggled with creating a profitable freelance journalism business when everyone I knew thought I was crazy to quit a stable job (during the recession no less!) and then subsequently struggled with what everyone would think when I later quit said profitable freelancing journalism business to become a (gasp!) blogger.

It's been a wild ride, but I can honestly say that since I began blogging full-time, my life has exponentially improved.

Truth be told, when I was a freelance writer for magazines and newspapers, I hated having to report to an editor, to be beholden to their advertisers and their needs, to convince through begging and pleading that a story needed to be told and, more often than not, to be rejected. Couple that with diminishing budgets, increasing demands, cranky and thankless editors, an overall exhaustion from traveling so much and a body that couldn’t handle eating rich restaurant food five times a week, 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.


After A LOT of trial and error, I started to develop a system , one that actually worked , to turn my blog into an insanely profitable business. By the end of 2016, I was able to quit my my freelancing business to run my blog full time! 12 months later, the blog had made $75,000. And by the end of my third year, I was making over $150,000... FROM. MY. FREAKING. BLOG.

Not only has my blog been wildly successful revenue-wise, but I’m finally writing the stories that I want to tell, I’m finally helping others to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives, and I’m doing it ALL on my own terms.

I’m happy to report that life is so much better now that I’m truly my own boss and a full-time blogger. I look forward to each and every day–I wake up excited to work, I’m always learning something new and I love the challenge of running your own business, constantly coming up with new ways to monetize and help people, simultaneously.

After reaching a six-figure income in just my third year of blogging, I know I have something valuable to share about making money online, something that I hope will help you learn how to monitize your passion, something that lights you up every day and makes you excited to get to work, something that impacts others for the better, something you can do from your couch in your jammies or on a beach in the Caribbean or at a desk in a co-working space at whatever dang time you please because YOU’RE YOUR OWN BOSS.

“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. One of the main reasons I enjoy Kate’s teaching style is her focus on not just gaining traffic for traffic's sake, but really putting value behind that traffic. I really enjoy Kate’s business-minded approach to blogging, which I feel like is missing in the food blogging world. Overall the course was very well designed and VERY informative. When I first [started 6FBA], I thought it was most helpful for newbies. But now I see there are MANY bonuses, content upgrades, spreadsheets, and additional modules where Kate went above and beyond--it's these small touches that bring more value to a module that most veteran bloggers would find basic information. I truly think 6FBA is one of the most -- if not THE most -- comprehensive courses for bloggers, especially those in the food, wellness, or lifestyle space.” -Kristina Todini, forkintheroad.co

"I wish this course was available three years ago when I started blogging! It would have saved me so much time and I would have had everything set up right from the get go. And I'm not just talking about the technical setup of a website like how to protect a site, what plugins to use, what host to pick and what platform to choose (although all of that is included and also a game changer)...I'm talking about strategy, where to invest my time, how to work smarter and not harder, how to tell a story, how to choose keywords, what critical elements to include on the site, how to work with brands, how to maximize affiliate income...and gosh, SO MUCH MORE! If you are serious about blogging and want to make it your full time career, THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU!" -Lisa Fennessy, thisorganicgirl.com

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 of the 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! I now have a clear direction that I have struggled to find in the past. I have looked into and taken quite a few blog-related courses, and none of them have been as impactful as this one. I will continue to come back and use it as a resource as my blog business grows (fingers crossed!). I would recommend 6FBA to ANYONE interested in learning more about the blogging business.” -Kelsey Williams, forkingscrumptious.com

“I would take the course again because, while I am a seasoned blogger, you had plenty that did apply to me, that I could implement and learn. This course is a great map for anyone and the effort you have clearly poured into it cannot be understated.” - Sarah Cook, sustainablecooks.com

"Kate tells you exactly what you need to grow and monetize your blog and more importantly, she tells you the specific action items required to do it. She's done the research and tested out the options and authentically lays it all out there for you to take advantage of. She holds no secret back and has completely changed my strategy (the section on how to do keyword research to create killer content especially blew my mind). 6FBA is easily consumable and feels more like having a conversation with a colleague, rather than taking an online course. This course will make growing your business a reality and leave you more motivated than ever." -Julie Schiavone, newbie blogger

I’m so glad I took the plunge and signed up for 1:1 coaching. It was definitely worth it." -Stacy, NoFussNatural.com

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.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Plus, this course won't always be offered at this price, as new strategies and information will continually be added. But once you buy, won't have to pay a penny for any updates, as you will receive all updates fo' FREE :)
What if I am unhappy with the course? Do you offer refunds?
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 after enrollment to let me know that you’re not seeing any growth with the program, I’ll happily give you a full refund.

I want you to see how game-changing this course can be!
What if I'm a total blogging newbie and don't even have a blog yet?
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.
What if I already have a successful blog?
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!
What format is the course delivered in?
Good 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!
What kind of bloggers is this course for?
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!
I have a question that's not listed. Help!
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!
What is included in the VIP package with 1:1 coaching?

You will have 12 months from your date of purchase to redeem the coaching calls; however, you cannot book more than 1 call per month. The VIP package is only available to students who pay in full.
I can't afford it...I don't have enough time... I don't have what it takes...
{Insert your self-limiting belief of choice here.} Remember: these are beliefs, NOT TRUTHS. And most of them are actually about something deeper, often coming back to fear that we’re not good enough, we’re going to fail because we don’t have what it takes, or we aren’t worthy of happiness and love. It's NOT true! We wrote a post all about how to bust through these limiting beliefs and make your dreams a reality: https://rootandrevel.com/successful-blogging-limiting-beliefs/
