Before having your first baby, it's natural to try to read all the books and ask as many questions as possible. Yet despite trying to learn everything there is to know about birth and motherhood, there are still things that people just don't tell you. From common misconceptions to plain mom truths, there's a ton that moms have to figure out on their own. But as one mom blogger goes through this sh*t for the third time, she's calling out everything that new moms aren't warned about.
Countless things change when you become a parent but nothing as much as pooping does for moms. Not only is your body physically recovering while still trying pass that bowel movement, but your bathroom time is no longer your own. Many moms know the pooping in peace struggle yet don't talk about it, but that's not stopping one hysterical mama from naming it: the mythical mom poop.
The Goal: Find the best slippers that look like sneakers. After all, between Balenciaga’s sock sneakers, Allbirds’s wool slip-ons, and Adidas’s Primeknit racers, plenty of outdoor shoes feel like bedroom slippers. Surely the reverse must be true, too. The Verdict: The One Love Socks by Fuggit take aesthetic inspiration from the rarest, most coveted kicks on the market — in this case, Retro Air Jordan 1s — but are hand-crocheted by a team of female artisans in Turkey.
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".
