Sing it with me…I’m bringing fanny pack…yah! lol Look, if you were a kid of the 90’s then you get it. And if you were a kid of the 90’s then you probably don’t wanna see it again. UNLESS you are like me and think it is one of the GREATEST ideas ever. :Awwww yahhh! Say welcome back to the fanny pack! Last year sometime, it dawned on me as I was toting another crossbody purse across my chest so I could have my hands free and I thought, ugh! Enough of the divided strap splitting the girls up.
I love, love, LOVE, the women in my life! Whether it’s my mom, my besties, past and present girlfriends, neighbor…I love them all. I have girlfriends who I have known for more than 20 years. Three to be exact! I have girlfriends who also used to be neighbors. I have girlfriends I worked with at different radio stations in three different cities. I have girlfriends with whom I am sadly, no longer friends. I have girlfriends I met because of Breast Cancer. I have girlfriends I met through this website.
It feels so weird to even type the words but yes, it is true…we’re peacing out of Atlanta and moving to Florida! When I was growing up in Southern California, my younger brother Michael and I both said the words, “We are NEVER leaving California!” over and over again. We meant it too. Or at least I thought we did. Ha! I looooved California and I loved my childhood SO much! Like really, I had THE BEST childhood! I loved the sunshine. I loved the beach.
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".
