One of the reasons I started my blog was to share ways that I “dressed the part” (or at least tried to). Back then, I was working in the medical device industry traveling around the country for conferences with surgeons, meetings with hospital administration and to help train sales reps. It was important to me to be taken seriously from first impression to final handshake.
I love a creamy palette! And this wrap coat-slash-cardigan is both refined and casual. Makes for a versatile coat! Yesterday was a busy one – I coerced a very-sick Lucia into having a “stay in bed” day. Which meant finding all sorts of ways to make resting in bed actual fun. A 4 year old thinks breakfast in bed is fun: fresh fruit, yogurt, cheerios served and eaten on a tray. In bed. And pretending to spill (but not actually spilling) was also fun. She watched a movie in bed, we read stories in bed.
Good morning and happy Monday! We rented a big house in Tahoe (that sleeps 12!) for 4 families to stay the weekend together. Home cooked meals (by my friends – I was happy to enjoy their amazing meals and take on dishwashing duties, ha! ), kids playing together, adults catching up and chatting around the fireplace… it was altogether too fast and so much fun. Lucia got to partake in all of the snow activities she had been hoping for: skiing, tubing, and having a snowball fight.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
