Bustle is an online American women's magazine founded in August 2013 by Bryan Goldberg.[1] Bustle is designed for women and it positions news and politics alongside articles about beauty, celebrities, and fashion trends.[2] By September 2016, the website had 50 million monthly readers.[3]

History[edit]

Bustle was founded by Bryan Goldberg in 2013. Previously, Goldberg co-founded the website Bleacher Report with a single million-dollar investment.[4] He claimed that “women in their 20s have nothing to read on the Internet.”[5] Bustle was launched with $6.5 million in backing from Seed and Series A funding rounds.[4][6] There is no editor-in-chief, rather, writers control their own content.[7]

It surpassed 10 million monthly unique visitors in July 2014, placing it ahead of rival women-oriented sites such as Refinery29, Rookie and xoJane; it had the second greatest number of unique visitors after Gawker's Jezebel.[8][9] Bustle's increasing popularity among young women is partly attributed to its young writing staff. The writers are advised to write about stories that interest them; this can range from topics about beauty products to international affairs and politics.[4].

By 2015, Bustle had 46 full-time editorial staff.[4] In September 2016, Bustle launched a redesign using the company’s $11.5 million series D funding round. At that time, the site had over 70 full-time editors and 250 contract contributors who posted over 200 articles daily.[3]

On April 17, 2017 DMG Media announced that Elite Daily had been purchased by Bustle Digital Group.[10][11][12]
