After such a stressful week at work last week, I had the most relaxing and best weekend. My mom & I spent Saturday shopping together at the mall and running a few errands. Honestly, most weekdays I feel like I’m running on autopilot and always rushing so it was a nice change of pace. On Sunday, I stayed in and worked on this week’s blog posts and started planning content for next month.
We just hit the half way mark guys and already this week has been bananas!! I found out about a last minute project at work Monday afternoon on top of my already crazy work load this week. So I’ve been very busy and a little stressed. Friday can’t come soon enough. And on that note, let’s talk about how I stay sane on such a crazy week. I would be nothing without my day planners so today I wanted to share my favorites and talk about how I utilize them to stay organized.
How was your weekend? I feel like it flew by, but it was such a productive one so I’m not complaining. Plus, it was freezing in New York so I avoided any outdoor activities at all cost! Saturday night I worked on something really fun that I’ll be posting on Instagram later this week. I’m so excited to share and pretty proud of myself to be honest!! Make sure you’re following me to catch it!
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".
