If it's gotta do with blogging, I'm your girl.

I'm Kate and my mission is helping bloggers and solopreneurs like you build kickass online businesses. 

But let's rewind to the beginning...

In 2010, I founded ParchmentGirl.com, a popular online destination for book lovers. What began as a passion project eventually transformed into a profitable side hustle.

In 2016, I wrote a 20-week series called The Ultimate Guide to Book Blogging. The feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive and I realized–I love helping bloggers crush their goals!

Finally, at the end of 2017, I retired ParchmentGirl.com to pursue a new dream. In 2018, I launched KateScott.Co and I haven't looked back.

Here's what I believe...

Blogging is so much more than a profitable hobby or fun creative outlet...

It's a path to freedom.

You are the boss. You make the rules. You reap the rewards.

The pursuit of freedom is at the core of everything I teach.

I also believe...

It's okay to lead with your head. 

There's a lot of talk about heart-centered entrepreneurship going around these days and that's great. Really. No one likes the cold heartlessness of the corporate world. But to all my thinking girls out there (INTJ here!)– Just because you lead with your head doesn't mean you don't have heart.

The learning process is half the fun.

We're all racing for those milestones, but there's also joy in learning new skills and strategies. The things I learned during the first couple years of blogging when I wasn't making a dime were foundational to growing my business down the road.

Balance is key.

Being a solopreneur doesn't have to be a game of how-little-sleep-can-I-function-on. That road only leads to exhaustion and misery. That's why I believe so passionately in systems and strategies that lighten your workload, not add to it.

5 Random Facts About Me

Here are a few facts you might find interesting, amusing, and/or ridiculous:

1. I'm a contributing writer for Book Riot, the most popular independent website covering books + literature in North America.

2. I'm a descendent of Thomas Danforth, one of the villainous judges in The Crucible. He wasn't quite that evil in real life and actually played a role in bringing the Salem Witch Trials to an end.

3. I'm originally from Massachusetts. Aside from my minor occasional difficulty with the letter R, I don't think I have an accent, though a woman from New York once said to me, "I love your accent! What country are you from?" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

4. I went to summer camp for the first time when I was 8. Everyone else was homesick but little miss independent here never wanted to leave. I was so sad when the week was over, I briefly entertained the idea of stealing a canoe, crossing the lake, and going to live in the woods like Sam Gribley in My Side of the Mountain.

5. I have a serious chronic illness. That's one of the many reasons why I'm so passionate about blogging as a business. It's not just an alternative for people who want to escape the corporate world. It's a lifeline for people who can't work a regular 9-5 job.

These are a few of my favorite things...
