Lady Bluebottle is a lifestyle blog started in 2018 designed to be a gathering place for women to meet and share their stories. We plan to cover topics like relationships, mental health, life lessons, food, travel, style, and more.
Our focus is on authenticity, encouraging women to share their stories, and supporting women in the every day trials of simply being human.
Most of the content is written by Lady B. but other writers, bloggers, and women (or men!) with stories to share are welcome and encouraged to contribute. Author names are listed at the top of each post. Anonymous submissions are accepted!
Lady Bluebottle is named after a fictional character by the same name who appeared in a short work by Lord Byron titled, "The Blues: A Literary Eclogue." With the character of Lady Bluebottle, Byron was assumed to be characterizing (and mocking) Elizabeth Montagu, the founder of the Blue Stocking Society, often referred to the as the Bluestockings.
The Blue Stocking Society was a small group of women in the 18th Century who started an informal movement that encouraged intellectual conversation primarily among women, though men were often invited to their gatherings.
It's in the spirit of all the Lady Bluebottles in the world that our site was created.
