Are you the kind of person who likes to decide where your next holiday will be at the last minute? Or have you already got your travel plans sorted for the year ahead? Maybe you’re super-organised and are already thinking about 2019? Wherever you’re planning to visit next, it’s likely that the local cuisine is a pretty important factor in your decision-making process. For me, it’s right up there as a top priority – there’s not many better ways to experience a culture than with a culinary adventure!
Have you ever been to Go Ape? It’s an adventure-activity chain where groups of children and adults alike can explore the forest canopy via a series of treetop rope courses. We headed to Go Ape Sherwood Pines (Edwinstowe, Mansfield NG21 9JH), a short 20 miles rive for our house (parking is free). I love to challenge myself physically (within reason! ), Mark loves climbing with the kids but is too tall to fit in soft play (haha!
This week I was looking over last week’s #recipeoftheweek entries with a freshly brewed cup of tea in hand, and as every moist slice of something fruity came up it would seemed to be crying out ‘make me’. Every deliciously chocolaty slice seemed to be telling me the same. So who am I to argue with my gut? This week is all about the joy that comes with a delicious slice of something sweet, moist and tasty. This is THE place to link up your recipe posts for lots of tweet, comment and Pinterest love.
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".
