PBF: What's in a Name?

Let’s breeze through lunch today because I wasn’t really feelin’ it.

Don’t get me wrong, it was totally tasty, but I just wasn’t in the mood to eat what I packed for lunch this afternoon. It was a bit of a bummer, but I inhaled the whole thing and powered through because I’m tough. :D

Salad Time!

Today’s lunch was a big ol’ salad that included:

  • Spinach
  • Arugula
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Beets
  • Cucumber
  • Red pepper
  • Green pepper
  • Pork tenderloin
  • Italian dressing

My favorite part of this salad was the beets. I love ‘em!

We've Got the Beet, We've Got the Beet, We've Got the Beeeeeet, Yeah!

Veggies + Pork

So fresh!

PBF: What’s In a Name?

I remember when I began tossing around the idea of starting a blog. I had all sorts of crazy ideas when it came to the name of my blog.

I wanted my blog name to convey a love of food without seeming too overly healthy because, let’s face it, I’m not about to live my life without indulging in mini Oreo cheesecakes, red velvet cake brownies or whipped cream and chocolate wafer cookie stacks.

Plus, would any of you really want to visit www.AsparagusIsDelicious.com? I didn’t think so.

The blog name I initially settled on was “Soft Serve and Cheez-its.” I even created a blog with this name through Blogger, but didn’t post more than once. It just didn’t feel right.

What Could Have Been...

Ryan was actually the one who came up with the name of my blog. He was always catching me in the kitchen with my finger in the peanut butter jar and said I was the queen of peanut butter fingers. When he suggested “Peanut Butter Fingers” as the name of my blog, I was instantly smitten.

Doing What I Do Best

Not only did the name “Peanut Butter Fingers” highlight one of my all-time favorite snacks, but I felt like it also conveyed my laid-back approach to eating. Someone who thinks it’s okay to eat peanut butter straight from the jar using their finger can’t be someone who is rigid about healthy eating or a stickler for diets, right?

And there you have it! The history behind the name of my blog! :D

Question of the Afternoon

For non-bloggers:

  • If you started a blog, what would you name it?

For bloggers:

  • How did you select the name of your blog?

      I just discovered your blog a couple of days ago and already, I love it. The initial attraction was the name because as all of my friends and family know, peanut butter is my all-time FAVORITE food and I’m often caught dipping my fingers in the jar….that combined with the fact that you have a vizsla (my dream dog) and you’re as into fitness and health as I am, I already feel like we’re friends. Haha. Creepy. Thanks for the awesome recipes and tips. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far and you and your family are adorable :)

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

    May I simply just say what a relief to find somebody who truly knows what they are talking about on the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring a problem to
    light and make it important. More and more people need to look at this
    and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you
    certainly possess the gift.

    I love the name of your blog!

    It took me a couple of goes to find a blog name I really liked. Initially I created a blog called My Little Fitness Space, which I then decided was too restrictive as I wanted to run a lifestyle blog filled with yummy eats, a little bit of fitness and pretty things like home decor, fashion etc.

    Then came “Annie’s Little Life”…which I decided was too bland.

    And finally, I’ve just created “Press-studs & Teacups” and I am 110% happy with this name! I think it reflects the diversity of the blog and I do love a good cup of tea!

    Hi! I’m loving this blog so far – And I totally eat PB straight out of the jar! My husband laughs at me every time. I even have my own jar! :)
    My dear friend and I started our blog about 5 months ago – and it took us quite some time to choose our name. We (obviously!) chose Two Healthy Kitchens (we call it THK!) – we both love to cook, we try to feed our families with super healthy foods, and well … there’s 2 of us. There ya go!
    I’m super excited to follow you – I love to workout (I prefer to run on treadmills rather than outside) and I just started yoga and strength training. :)

    Hi! I just found your blog today and absolutely love it! I started my own blog a few months ago and I definitely know what you mean about struggling to find a name! Eventually, I settled on the name I have now because I felt as though it conveyed the message that I wanted to get across to my readers as well as my own personal story. I write about finding healthy balance in your life between physical, mental, and spiritual health. And most importantly to not go by certain numbers like someone’s weight or measurements!

    I’d love for you to check it out! I’m always looking for helpful tips and suggestions from other bloggers :)
