Just wanted to pop in with some of my favorite new things! Beauty and otherwise:) One thing that I didn’t include but would love for you to hear if you are interested is a podcast Nick and I did with The Archibald Project (which is an amazing orphan advocacy program) sharing some of our story in fostering. HEREHow to Talk So Kids Will Listen, and Listen So Kids Will TalkHave a wonderful weekend! Love you all!
If you’ve been following along here for very long you probably already know that I am not a big believer in beauty “rules”. I figure if you feel pretty that’s the goal and you’re reaching it. Rules need not apply. Buuuuut sometimes there are things that gain popularity that I think make life more complicated while also making me feel LESS pretty. So I’m calling a few of those out in this video! If you’ve got some of your own I’d love to hear about them!
After 6 years of blogging this has been my longest time away EVER! So far 2017 has been one of the most wonderful and crazily busy years of my life. AfterÂ releasing our artist program, moving and just living the life that 2 toddlers, a 6 year old and a teenager involves I had to take a little break…which turned into a very long break!
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
