TVTA’s new site is up!

Greetings, vintage mates! Below is the link to my new site which is mostly ready to rock now. I already made a few test posts there using blocks and so far it’s looking okay. Please join me there as I continue to unpack and decorate the place 🙂

It’s called The Atomic Mage

Over the next few days I’ll work my way to (re)following you from there, and please feel free to follow me too – or to coin the phrase of fellow blogger Julie over at Darkside Creative please bother me and I will bother you right back 🙂

In TVTA news… look out later this week for a collaboration post between myself and FT from FTSabersite in tribute to the first ever Gerry Anderson Day! I originally intended to post my part here at TVTA, but due to zero disc space it’s going to go up at The Atomic Mage.

In other TVTA news… I already miss this place after only a week in the wilderness! The domain name for TVTA is still (and will remain so) under my ownership, so don’t be surprised if I make one or two ‘special posts’ throughout the year. Never say never and all that.

A big thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes. Hope everyone is doing good, keeping safe and staying creative!

Best, Ford
