I remember ponchos first coming on my radar when I was in my teens and noticed a woman sitting by us in the airport. She was the epitome of class, and while I was in my jeans and California girl t-shirt, she was all sorts of travel chic. She carried a beautiful sleek bag, wore black pants, perfectly applied makeup, and a poncho that looked equal parts luxurious, sophisticated, and smart. It was a style I’ve remembered since.
If you read last week’s new column called NYC & Me and liked the idea of ongoing series on Margo & Me, then I have a treat for you today. 2018 is the year of series on this site and really connecting to you lovely readers. As such, I wanted a place to showcase the products that I’m using and loving each month. More specifically, the ones that aren’t part of a collaboration.
And so it begins, NYC & Me. A romantic, intoxicating, inspiring journey; and all at once. Just like that, a beautiful chapter of my life closes just as another one opens. Quite simply, it’s time. I remember the minute it dawned on me that we’d be living in NYC soon. I was in New York last January in my hotel room, watching the snow fall from my 9th floor hotel room room overlooking Soho. Have you ever felt that sense of awakening energy, yet surrounded by complete calm and stillness?
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".
