Firstly, thanks to Amy from Juliet's Lace for creating this cool thing. So many people are doing it. Please check out her blog.
I've touched on this in a few other posts, but essentially I've been aware of Goth my whole life. My parents were exposed to other Goths when they were at university and they regularly made references to my 'gothic tendencies' in the past. It wasn't until I was about 14 that I really 'discovered Goth' for my self in a book called Paint It Black by Voltaire. I've been wearing all black for about eight years ago so it's been a pretty smooth, natural progression for me.
