This post has been sponsored by Zoono USA. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The temperature is still reading high 70s here in New England, but my family has already had their first round of colds and missed some school. All it takes is one of the kids to have the sniffles, and then we all get it. I know the pattern well and I’m always the last one to get to the illness. I’m not a doctor, but I do know my needs during cold and flu season. Seems like a no-brainer.
Fall lovers rejoice! It is our favorite time of year and we can now scream it from the rooftops. I’ve already checked off #1 and #6 off myÂ family fall bucket list, decorated the house and started some seasonal crafts. Seeing it written down makes it look like I’m ahead of the game, but honestly, I’ve chosen to do the fun stuff instead of laundry, floor washing and some nights even cooking! đ˜łÂ #YOLOThis year, my 3-year-old got the head start on fall crafts because we spend all day together.
I’m a sucker for baby gear or anything baby-related. I’ve had four children and I’m currently using my fourth diaper bag. (Full disclosure: I actually sell them when I’m done so I can put that money towards a new one. I swear, I’m not a hoarder!) But, whether it be due to functionality or style, I had found a reason each time to get a different one. I’m a pro-packer now and it doesn’t take me long to replenish my bags’ contents after a day of use.
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".
