Since becoming a part of the travel blogging community, there is one city that I’ve heard nothing but constant praise for: Chiang Mai. Home to a sizable travel blogging community, everyone seems to love this city. Can I even call Chiang Mai a city? It feels barely bigger than a town! Located in the northern region of Thailand, Chiang Mai seems worlds away from its infamous big brother Bangkok, and although it’s indeed the second largest city, I guarantee it’ll never feel that way.
This week we would like to introduce Kimi of Wandering Souldier. Kimi Sugiyama is a girl with one foot in multiple worlds. She is a Detroit native that has been traveling the world since June 2012 looking for big adventures on a small budget. After quitting her job, she is now the chief comfort zone demolisher at Wandering Souldier, working her way towards a location independent lifestyle, studying the Japanese language, and sharing all of her adventures along the way. 1.
Can you believe winter is almost here already? I know I sure can’t. Maybe it’s because Hong Kong is still a nice 80°F outside, but it didn’t dawn on me until the other day when I went inside a mall that was decked out in Christmas decorations and music. Then I realized that November is rapidly ending– and what, tomorrow’s Thanksgiving? I talked all about Christmas and holiday events last year, so believe it or not, this will actually be my only winter/Christmas related post this year.
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".
