I’m not sure why I’ve been so secretive about my next plan for life, but I feel as though I’m finally ready to share it. Maybe I was nervous about peoples’ reactions, or maybe I just wanted some kind of privacy, but at the end of the day, this has always been my blog of truth. It’s therapy for me to write, and I have always done so in hopes that one person could take something away from the post. The thing is, it took me a LONG time to figure out that I wanted to be a radio DJ.
It’s OKAY to outgrow yourself….What the heck am I talking about? To be honest, I’m talking about me, and you, and all of us who are on a forever journey to themselves. I’m the kind of person who is a dream chaser. I get my eye and my heart on a certain vision, than I plan accordingly, and journey towards that dream. It happened with radio, marriage, a house, children, and it’s happening again. I’m chasing a new dream, one I hope lasts me for decades.
I’ve been thinking about who I am, and who I was a lot lately. I’m sure any sleep deprived hormonal mom/dad/person can relate. When we become a parent, our lives are ROCKED to the core. You’ve heard about it, and then you learn it. You are forever changed. For me, I started to really notice a HUGE change in my needs/wants/personality when Parker was born. It’s not rocket science, he was my first born, and I’d never be the same.
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".
