Today we are excited to share a little more Mo Willems with you as well as a fun and simple craft for your kids to use on their brand new book! Thank you to Disney-Hyperion for sponsoring this post with us and making it possible to share more creativity and fun ideas. You all may be familiar with Leonardo the Terrible Monster and now there is a new sequel to that book that gives you a better glimpse into Sam’s world with Sam, the Most Scaredy-cat Kid in the Whole World.
My absolute favorite season is Fall! If you have been a reader around here for a while you already know that things on this blog seem to ramp up around this time of year. I just feel more creative and baking is my jam. Also, I love all of the new textures and fabrics that the cooler weather brings. My clothes get cozy, warm, and more fun! I love to add a few pops when it comes to accessories, nothing major, but larger pieces that pop. That is why I have been in love with all of the JORD Wood Watches.
As of late, it seems like my little boys are growing into little men. I often look back on those Facebook memories that pop up of those chubby little faces and wonder where all of the time has gone. One thing is generally a constant as I look back and that is the boys outdoors. No matter how old they get I want them to know and cherish moments outside, to seek adventure and to love the world God created for them.
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".
