He’s dark, handsome, fun, affectionate, likes going for long walks and loves snuggling with me on the sofa. Who is this mystery man you ask? Well, his name is Reuben and he’s an eight-month-old miniature dachshund. ‘Puppy’ was the word scrawled across the top of my Christmas list every December since the age of three. As a child, I memorised every breed in the world, as well as their personality traits, hair-type and how often you had to exercise them. But, I never owned a furry friend.
When I started this blog, I didn’t even own a camera. Instead, made one big investment. I bought an iPhone 7 PlusÂ knowing it could produce great photos, without the hassle of carrying around heaps of expensive photography equipment. One year later, still no camera. I love using my iPhone for blogging as it means I can blog whenever I want, wherever I want. Almost all of the photos you’ll find on this blog were shot on my phone, with minimal gear or editing.
If you’re visiting Britain’s capital, you have to have an afternoon tea. It is the most quintessentially English thing you can do of an afternoon and London has so many amazing afternoon teas on offer. When you do you have afternoon tea? Historically, it’s meant to be served around 4pm, to fill the gap between lunch and dinner. Now we have busier lives, people usually tend to have it as a treat for brunch or lunch.
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".
