Brit and Leiah began working together one year ago, as the co-hosts of a Washington, DC, radio show, Good Things DC. The two were originally invited on air as panelists, but they hit it off so well, they were asked to take over hosting. They have a lot in common: On the first day of work, they realized they had both signed up to compete in their first pageant earlier in the year.
Let’s get real: Celebrities are working moms. They just have a more glamorous day job (and sometimes night job) than the rest of us. But let’s also be real: They probably have it a little easier than their fellow working moms when it comes to balancing work and life. They’ve got personal assistants, publicists, stylists, personal trainers, personal chefs, housekeepers and, crucially, nannies.
As a working mom who powers through pretty much any obstacle in my path, it often takes a full-scale calamity for me to realize my methods aren't working. One of those moments of clarity happened last week as I was preparing for a friend's wedding across the country. Less than 12 hours before my 5 a.m. flight, I found myself furiously Googling salons in the city I'd be visiting because I hadn't touched up my roots, cut my hair, painted my nails or waxed my eyebrows in months.
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".
