It’s about that time again! That time when I make my family dress up in a group Halloween costume while I can still bend them all to my will. đ˜‰ Kidding. (Or am I?) Actually, Henry isÂ super into the group costume thing but he’s starting to want to call the shots when it comes to exactlyÂ what we are. We have a few options on the table, but we need help deciding! First, he wanted to be the Paw Patrol. Luckily we were able to quickly steer him away from that (because uggghhhh) and towards some Disney.
Friends, I’m looking for your help! We’re about to dive head first into the end-of-the-year holidays, and I want this space to be rockin’ for you. Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years there’s lots to celebrate and so many opportunities to be creative, so I’ve gotta ask: what do you want? How can we help your holidays be particularly awesome? I’d love to know what you want and need when it comes to tutorials, recipes, or just general inspiration. Need Halloween costume how-tos?
I always have my best days when I hear from you guys that something I shared here has been helpful. I love it! So many of you have gotten some tips from our post about getting a baby to sleep through the night, so it’s high time we shared the next step: how to drop naps from your baby’s schedule. So read up on our first post to get the groundwork, and we’ll pick it right up where we left off!
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".
