Hello my little snowbirds. The other day, I was on Day 2 of my friend Jeremy Goldberg’s 10 day course, “Get Shit Done 101.” (I’m notoriously not-so-great at finishing long online courses, but this one is only 10 days — and I really needed help focusing — so I figured I’d give it a shot).
Over the weekend, I got a GORGEOUS package in the mail from my friend Vani — you may know her as The Food Babe – and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. In fact, I woke up this morning and ran downstairs to get started on this blog post. :)Vani and I met a few years ago when I was working as a health coach in Dr. Lipman’s office, and we became fast friends.
I’m really happy to be sharing a travel related post today. Last year at this time, I was traveling through Australia, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Bali and South Africa — and this year, going to New Hampshire for an overnight trip feels like a HUGE deal. Oh, the flow of life…This week, I stayed in a tiny house for the first time. A tiny cabin in the woods. And it was magnificent. :)Joel had been sending me photos of Getaway Houses for a few weeks, and we finally decided to try it out.
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".
