When I started blogging 6 years ago it was very much about the gothic style. I was very very into it back then, so when I switched blogdomain 2011 I started to call my blog Lesthis gothworld as many of you know.
The last 2 years I have felt that I haven't lived up to that name. I have honestly felt like a hypocrit, like when people visit my blog they expect to see some sort of gothqueen, which I definitly wouldn't call myself nowadays. Over the years I have been feeling uncomfortable in some sort of clothes. Like I'm too dressed up. So without even thinking about it, I started to tone the gothic down when it came to clothes and jewelry because I felt more comfortable that way.
I still mostly wear black clothes, I don't think that will ever change. And I do like what one would call an "alternative" style. My home will probably also always look like a halloween store but Lesthis gothworld just doesn't feel like me so that why I now have changed my blogname to just Lesthi's instead :) It feels like a relief, I should have done it a long time ago.
I definitly think that goth is something with a wide range and that there aren't any specific rules about how to look goth. But still, I'm pretty sure that people wouldn't describe me as that anymore, maybe weird/odd or something but not goth. And I don't want the pressure to look like something. I just wanna be me. :)
What do you think about this? I know I have many gothreaders. What do you define as goth and would you call your style goth?
