At dinner one night over the holidays, my family got to talking about our bucket lists around the table. It was such a fun discussion to hear where my parents & siblings are looking to explore! I have a general idea of places I’m really interested in going to but I have actually never written them down. (Shockingly given my general obsession with list-making.) Copenhagen & Stockholm were also on the list until I recently booked that trip. (Going end of March!) So was Charleston (going next month!)
Happy Wednesday you guys! Sharing a more casual outfit today in an effort to capture a bit more of what my everyday style has been looking like of recent. I wanted to chat a little about tunes today! Do you guys listen to a lot of music? I used to rely on it for my commute and for getting through the work day but I fell out of the rhythm when I started working for myself.
You may have seen in my 2018 goals post that I am going to continue to prioritize my health and fitness this year and so far, things have been going pretty well! I’m never sorry about getting to a workout class, even if I really have to motivate myself to leave my apartment. (Particularly when the weather has been so frigid!) Over the years, I’ve come to realize that I am not above using cute, new workout gear as one of my motivating factors.
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".
