The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Lady Bracknell introduces herself to her readers

Lady Bracknell is a gentlewoman of independent means who, since the tragic passing of Lord Bracknell some decades ago, and the transfer of responsibilities for the wellbeing of her only daughter Gwendolen to the estimable Jack (now, ‘Ernest’) Worthing, has devoted what little time she can spare to attempting to educate those who have not had her advantages in the social niceties. Unusually for one of her impeccable breeding, Lady Bracknell conceals beneath her steely exterior a sympathy towards those poor unfortunates who have been sadly afflicted with incapacities of the mind and body, and many of her perorations deal particularly with the problems encountered by those whose lives have been so blighted.

Lady Bracknell is not unfamiliar with the marvels of modern technology. Indeed, she is capable of playing wax disks on the gramophone herself on those rare occasions when she has granted the butler a free evening. Nevertheless, she prefers the old-fashioned and time-honoured method of committing her perorations to foolscap, and is assisted in the transference of her words of wisdom to an electronic device by her editor. (Lady Bracknell devoted considerable energy to her search for a sober and industrious young person whom she believed could be trusted to undertake this transference without undue interference in the important messages she wishes to purvey. Now that such a person has been found, Lady Bracknell is confident that – should her own onerous social duties prevent her from devoting as much time to this blog as is needful – her editor can be safely left in charge of contributions at no risk to the integrity of the author’s message.)

Lady Bracknell graciously welcomes readers of all social backgrounds to her blog, and ventures to hope that they will find it educational.

Lady Bracknell thanks you kindly for your good wishes and your generous offer.

She will reciprocate your favour as and when her editor has fully mastered the fine art of creating links.

(For such links as exist already, Lady Bracknell owes a considerable debt to the technological expertise of The Goldfish.)

Lady Bracknell believes the appropriate modern response to this to be ... ahem .... "No problemo".

(Never let it be said that Lady Bracknell is incapable of moving with the times.)
