I can hardly believe it, but in less than three short weeks I’ll be hopping back on a plane and heading over to the US to kick off the next leg of The Blogcademy‘s 2014 world tour!
I really can not wait to get back on the road and to be teaching again. It’s such a thrill to meet so many new people and to be doing it with two of my very best friends.
Our last class was almost six months ago (!!) which in retrospect was definitely too long of a break. I’ve missed it all so much. Here’s a little reminder about where and when The Blogcademy jet will be landing this year.

It’s official, The Blogcademy is a whirlwind. A giant, turquoise, glitter infused whirlwind! I am so pumped today because I have some news that I’ve been struggling to keep in for weeks. I’m glad I finally get to let rip and share it with you today!
So the big news is that our London class this year has already sold out… and it’s not until July! Insane. So, we’ve decided to add a second date, the weekend before, on July 19th and 20th. Again, it’ll be taking place at the beautiful Curtain Road Studios (I know we shouldn’t have favourites but…) Just click here to register.
After many cries from our Facebook page for another East Coast date, we’ve also added Washington DC to the mix. We’ll be there on October 4th and 5th. None of us have ever been to the city before so we’re super excited to explore! Again, you can register here.
And finally, because it seems like FOREVER until we’re teaching next, we’ve decided to do a FREE live broadcast from Palm Springs on Sunday 9th February at 11am PST/ 2pm EST/ 7pm GMT!
You might think that teaching three workshops in three weeks would be enough, but not for The Blogcademy! In between our two Melbourne classes, Gala, Shauna and I flew to New Zealand for our final location of the year. Our venue was Generator, a super rad event space in downtown Auckland.
Having mini films of each city on this trip made was so awesome. I’ve loved reliving these moments since!
This might have been one of the smiliest classes so far…
…and the best dressed!
“I read numerous comments stating ‘you can find everything you want to know about blogging/monetizing by simply googling it, or you can just ask fellow bloggers, as some have been doing this for ages’. The truth is, I’ve done a tonne of research on all these things (all the not-so-basic blogging questions), and have been blogging for years myself, and I’ve never found the information I needed (not the super-important stuff anyway) from Google or from just asking around … At Blogcademy all your questions are answered, and nothing is taboo – this for me was golden!! I guess what I’m saying here is if you are thinking about attending Blogcademy and are told that you can just get that info anywhere – my personal opinion is that you can’t and the wisdom I gained, made Blogcademy totally worth attending!” – Angie Fredatovich
When we launched our 2013 Blogcademy world tour last March, we were blown away by how quickly the tickets started to sell, but no city was as fast as Melbourne. Within only a few days the class had sold out and so we made the executive decision to extend our trip down under and add a second date to the mix – and I’m so glad we did, Melbourne was one of my favourite cities to teach in all year!
The classes were held at the beautiful Lightdrop Studios. Alex and Bernice who own it were a dream to work with and made our time with them stress-free, nothing was too much trouble. And when, a few days before the class, we were contacted by ABC News wanting to interview us (you can watch it online here!) Bernice, a trained make up artist, even offered to do our faces – what a babe!
“Everything you’ve ever read about The Blogcademy is true. It does change your life. You do walk away feeling overwhelmed with excitement and inspiration. It is totally fucking fabulous. Gala, Kat and Shauna are just as magical as you think they are. And they have the capability and drive to match the exceedingly gorgeous sparkle that seems to trail behind them wherever they go.” MJ Valentine
With winter just beginning to rear its ugly head over the Northern Hemisphere I was pleased as punch to be heading to the other side of the planet to teach our final four Blogcademy classes of the year, our first of which took place in sunny Brisbane.
Australia welcomed us with open arms and as soon as we landed we were told that we’d been featured in Sunday Style magazine which is distributed all over the country. With temperatures in Queensland topping out at 32 degrees some days that was a doubly warm welcome!
Our first class was held at Bleeding Heart Gallery, right in the middle of Brisbane’s CBD (central business district). The high ceilings and all-white walls were right up our alley.
Put simply, the workshop was a game changer for me and it cannot be summed up in one post! I learnt so much; not just about blogging but about myself and where I truly see myself going with regards to my creative pursuits: it wasn’t just a two-day workshop on blogging but a weekend of empowerment.
