There has been an ongoing conversation between my sister-friends and I about not feeling cherished by our men . I’m sorry to say that we think a lot of men these days fall terrifyingly short. I'm not saying good men don't exist — they do. The unfortunate part about this truth is they can seem to be few and far between. If you know you're a good partner please disregard this message and know we appreciate you. But even you might still find something of value if you keep reading.
I'm choosing to be the spicy, confident, but loving seductress who affirms, “I know you’re worthy of my love, but when you remember you’re worthy come get this," over the nice, timid, careful-not-to-piss-anyone-off little girl who says, “Are you ok? Are we ok? Was it something I said or did?”The seductress affirms my power while the little girl questions it, is afraid of it.
Some have it twisted. They think when chaos and challenges show up in people's lives, that person must be doing something wrong. "They must have gone against the orders of God." "It must be payback for something they've done." This might be the truth in some instances, but definitely not the truth in all instances. They’ve chosen to grab life by its horns and take it on the way they see fit, relinquishing any need for validation. These people are the creatives .
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".
