If I had to describe my son’s birth in three words, they would be:1. Long. I was in intense labor (we’re talking can’t sleep and occasionally vomiting level of intensity) for about 53 hours before my son finally arrived! 2. Empowering. This is not a word you often hear used to describe childbirth but definitely one I felt and still feel deeply. There is nothing quite like bringing a child into this world, and knowing that it was your body that carried and nourished him for months and months.
There’s something so intriguing about what goes on inside another woman’s handbag since this one essential accessory basically contains your entire life. When you graduate from handbag to diaper bag, this new accessory quickly becomes your lifeline. And what you put inside of it can tell a lot about what style parent you are…and how long you’ll actually survive in the wild without having to return home (or stop by your nearest baby shop) for backup.
Becoming a mother is a huge transition. Obviously. And while buying baby gear can be exciting and cause you to have cute-attacks throughout the pregnancy process, there are certain purchases that really just make a mom question her identity. The diaper bag for instance. But don’t let the name scare you away. Sure, the term “diaper bag” is, well, unappealing, but Leader Bag Co. diaper bags are proof you can be the super efficient mom you always wanted to be and the style envy of your new mom crew.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
