Earlier this year, while driving to Galveston with some cool peeps (not as cool as me of course but ya know…) I started to tell a story that totally went another direction. Ever since then, it has been on my mind like crazy and so I thought I’d finally close that chapter in my mind and share it with you. My blogging career began in 2007. I didn’t even know what a blog was but just wanted to make money because we were dirt poor.
When you live in the middle of nowhere Texas, you don’t get to town to grocery shop as much as others do. It’s imperative that I take every initiative I can to make all my food last longer, especially produce. That’s why I was so excited to partner up with Rubbermaid and try out their FreshWorks containers ! We live 30 minutes from the nearest town so I can’t aways run to get fresh produce so I usually buy in bulk and we either try to hurry and eat before it goes bad or it goes bad.
Are you one of those cruisers that take a pair of walkie talkies with you so that you can communicate with your kids or spouse across the ship? If you are, you might wanna read this post because 1) walkie talkies are sooooo 2007 and 2) Carnival Cruise has an app for that; the Carnival HUB app.
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".
