If you’ve been following me for awhile you’ve probably seen that I’ve worn Sarah Flint shoes time and time again. (See here, here & here.) Right now these block heels have been on heavy rotation because they’re both cute and comfortable to wear all day. One of the main reasons I love her shoes are that they are handmade in Italy with quality fabrics; and she’s preserving the artisanal techniques of shoe making (each shoe is even signed by the artisan that handmade it!)
When I asked if anyone had questions about blogging, I got a lot of them — so I had to break it up into sections.Â This is Part 2 of answering your questions about blogging, and I’m happy to answer any other questions you have (Click here to read Part 1!). If you have any additional questions, the easiest way to reach me is by DMing me on instagram Â or leave a comment on this post. Q: How old were you when you started blogging? A: If you count my Open Diary, I was 15.
Basically the veryÂ secondÂ Halloween is over, I’m in full holiday mode. Sure, we still have Thanksgiving, butÂ holiday season starts early in NYC: ice skating, winter villages, window displays, and festive lights will soon be taking over our city. Since I spend Christmas in Florida, I like to stretch out the festivities in New York as much as possible — and I get most of my holiday shopping done early.
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".
