The article is available, at the new site:
http://www.alexelkholy.com (or for the article directly: http://alexelkholy.com/2009/05/08/miso-soup-from-scratch/)
The 'killer url' I was going to use was "touchofalex.com", but I ultimately decided against it, for obvious reasons.
I ended up going with hostingrails for the hosting (that's an affiliate link, so use it if you're considering it yourself; they're the best hosting I could find and I recommend them).
It cost me a total of 50 dollars to put it all up.
Expect lots of good content, I have two packed pages of article ideas that I'm itching to write.
And give me feedback on the theme, what I can do to improve it.
