I don’t have to post a blog today because my 100 Day Blogging Challenge ended yesterday, but I am feeling kinda squirmish not posting something….so, hi. In case anyone is curious, I wanted to share the link to all 100 blog posts that I wrote during the challenge, along with every other blog post I’ve ever written.
I’m officially on Day 100 of my 100 Day Project of posting a blog every single day. It feels kind of surreal that it’s actually Day 100, and it’s really crazy to think back on the past 100 days and how much I was moving around and all the transition that’s been going on. And I still managed to post SOMETHING every day. Not each day was my proudest blog post…but I pressed that little blue publish button, and that was the point.
I’m a tiny bit thrown off right now because I thought I was on Day 100 of my 100 Days of Blogging, but I’m actually only on Day 99. So I was planning to write a recap post about what it was like to write 100 blogs. But I shall save that for tomorrow. Happy almost Day 100…. So I figured today would be a good day to bring up negative ions.ÂThe other day I was up in Encinitas looking at some apartments and a really friendly woman was showing me around.
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".
