Bustle is an online American women's magazine founded in August 2013 by Bryan Goldberg.[1]


Bustle was founded by Bryan Goldberg in 2013. Previously, Goldberg co-founded the website Bleacher Report with a single million-dollar investment.[2] Bustle was launched with $6.5 million in backing from Seed and Series A funding rounds.[2][3]

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.[4][5] 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.[2].

By 2015, Bustle had 46 full-time editorial staff.[2]

On April 17, 2017 DMG Media announced that Elite Daily had been purchased by Bustle Digital Group.[6][7][8]
