Milano was my third stop on an eight city, five week, trip around Italy. As a digital nomad, I not only enjoy balancing my time traveling between heavy touring and light touring – but it also becomes a necessity as, after a few days without email connectivity, my work starts to pile up. Milan was the perfect place to take a break from non-stop exploration and live like a local. I opted to stay with Brera Apartments in Milan for my three nights in the fashion capital of Italy.
First, I have to mention – Fat Tire Tours is hosting a trip to Paris giveaway! You can enter to win a trip for two to Paris from Fat Tire Tours here. Originally founded as a company offering bike tours around Paris – Fat Tire Tours has since expanded into a wide array of tour services from bike tours to Segway tours and skip-the-line tours, in many different cities (Paris, Berlin, London and Barcelona). The Eiffel Tower view lit up at night from the first platform.
Ahhh, Wednesday. Also known as “hump day”. (And also the only day with an official mascot, *insert camel emoji*). Wednesday is undoubtedly the most neutral day of the week. There have been countless studies that prove that Mondays and Tuesdays are the two most productive days of the week. When Wednesday rolls around the momentum slows up a bit and by Thursday most people can only think of Friday – and Friday is basically just a day where people plan their weekend.
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".
