This may be a five minute home hack to organize your coat closet, but trust me when I say we’re gonna cover a lot of ground today. Firstly, you’re about to see a part of my home that’s neither styled nor fancy nor full of very cool and/or expensive organizational tools. The part of my home you’re about to see is the inside of our coat closet door. And it’s nothing special. (Because IÂ swearÂ bloggers are real people too, and I have a messy coat closet just like everyone else in the world.
We’re sharing another sweet detail from Miss Maggie’s first birthday! I love to make birthday cakes for my kids, but they’re really never anything fancy. (This baby is box Funfetti and I amÂ not ashamed.) But I always like to add a little fun touch when we decorate the cakes to make them feel special. So I decided to make a sprinkle cake with a pompom cake topper, because Mags is alllll about those pompoms.
I admit it, I was totally scared to try marshmallows. They seem so… professional! And I always hear these horror stories of getting all the way through the recipe and then just having them turn into a sticky mess. But it seems like we worked out a recipe that’s pretty safe from failing, if you just have a good candy thermometer. I made these homemade marshmallows with sprinkles to pass around for Maggie’s birthday and they were a hit! Fluffy, puffy, and just the right amount of vanilla flavor.
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".
