I’ll never forget the moment when I looked down and saw my legs in the hospital after delivering my daughter. I had intentionally avoided full-length mirrors after showers for quite sometime during my third trimester, thinking it was better for everyone to not think about my body or its current state. Seeing my legs now, I felt disconnected from my very own body. I’ve always been naturally thin, so while I was a little nervous about the baby weight, I assumed I wouldn’t gain all that much.
Enough is enough, you guys. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and sometimes I end up feeling like Cindy Lou Who, thinking to myself “Isn’t it a bit much?”It is too much. It is all so fun. Until it isn’t. Because you have no time and you are so tired you want to cry. You know what I want to do this year? I want to have consecutive pajamas-and-don’t-leave-the-house-days. I want to bake Christmas goodies that don’t look like Pinterest projects.
in: You and Your Family>, Big Kid>, Parenting“Happy holidays” is more than just a phrase people use to be politically correct. It’s a recognition of the fact that there are dozens of different holidays that happen at the end of the year. Virtually every culture has some special celebration dedicated to reflection and celebration with our loved ones. What benefit does that offer to parents? Well, it’s always a good time to teach your kids about history and culture.
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".
