How’s the Slow Down been going for you? (Check out posts One, Two, and Three to catch up if you missed it.) Hoping that you’re headed into Thanksgiving tomorrow with a light heart (and an empty stomach). đ˜‰ Since we’re probably all headed out the door to get to a big turkey celebration with the people we love, I just thought it might be nice to check in with one more Slow Down idea. I know we all think about the things that we’re thankful for this week.
Kara is here to get us in a festive state of mind with theseÂ ridiculouslyÂ cute DIY reindeer drink stirrers! Read on to see how simple these babies are. And I’m gonna just go ahead and suggest right now that you make about a zillion of these because people are most definitely going to want to take them home. đ˜‰Okay, I must admit that I am totally smitten with the holidays. I have always been in love with this time of year, but it has reach all new heights since Ive had kids.
After Henry was born, I started wearing these earrings that had a tiny H on one ear and a tiny R on the other. I remember my sister was like, “I never thought you were that person!” but I was pumped to wear my two dudes’ initials loud and proud. And then after Maggie was born, I got myself this necklace with an R, an H, and an M on it, because I knew our family was complete. I wear it almost every day and I love it — it’s like carrying my people around with me.
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".
