When the Ritz-Carlton, Westchester invited me for a stay in January I knew I wanted to plan it around my 30th birthday. I decided to spend the night before my birthday at the Ritz-Carlton in Westchester as a solo-staycation – and I’m so glad I did! I spent the evening and night before my birthday being pampered and I couldn’t have planned a better way to leave my 20’s behind and enter my 30’s.
My friends at Contiki recently asked me to reflect on how travel has changed me as part of their “Power of Travel” campaign. After recently turning 30 I felt it was the perfect opportunity to reflect on the last few years and the last few adventures and I compiled this list of how travel has changed me. Prior to traveling as often as I do and exploring as much as I do – I was always on the go. I never took the opportunity to stop and smell the flowers.
Piggybacking off of the success of my post earlier in 2017 of my selfie fails, I decided to compile a few of my selfie fails from 2017 into one big #failed post. Previously, I had written “15 Times I Attempted a Perfect Selfie and #FAILED” which contained photos from the last two years of my travels. Welp, these selfie fails of 2017 have all happened since publishing that post in March. You’d think I’d have gotten it down by now, but nope!
[AD] New York is infamous for being a city of hustlers and as such, I’m proud to call this bustling city my home.💁🏼♀️ Being born and raised just outside of NYC is something I’ve definitely taken for granted and this year I made I a task of mine to e… http://ift.tt/2Grjrvrhttps://t.co/8eNvJ30U8D
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".
