Have you started planning for Christmas yet? I recently shared some of my Bullet Journaling Christmas ideas in a post on Sweet Tea and Saving Grace, and it made me start getting excited for the holidays. The last few years I’ve kind of had a Bah! Humbug! attitude about Christmas. I think it started when I got divorced 8 years ago. It was so hard for me to rotate years with my ex and spend every other year without my kids.
It’s time for my 5th annual Design Your Destiny goal setting program!! I hope you’ll join me. I love, love, love the feeling of a brand new year. I literally feel a buzz in the air with the prospect of a brand new beginning. I know thereâ€™s not really anything different about January 1st than any other day, but it gives me a point to start new goals and a stopping point to let go of things that arenâ€™t working.
Who loves October?? I love the cooler weather, and the feeling of magic that starts to come as the holidays roll around. Today, I’m sharing a few pages from my October Bullet Journal setup. September was a whirlwind month at my house. We had a family medical emergency, and my life got wrapped up in that for a couple weeks, so I never shared my September setup, so here are a couple of my September pages. This one is a picture of my favorite daily pages from September.
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".
