You know Beth Revis from her NY Times Bestselling Across the Universe YA sci-fi trilogy and many writers also know her from her years of writing advice on her blog and Wattpad which recently led to the release of her writing advice series, Paper Hearts.
So Playing House has officially been canceled. Anyone who has been following the show has been expecting this news, given how long the show was (unavoidably) on hiatus in between seasons. It didn’t stand a chance after that which is really unfortunate because this show was so good. It’s the kind of show that really warmed your heart. Playing House gives you the feeling of having the best homemade chocolate cookies you’ve ever had, that will also give you a slight buzz.
Wow, I can’t believe September has come and gone so fast! Fall is here and we’re almost done with the year 2017. Wild. I’m still settling into having moved back to Los Angeles and haven’t written about TV on the blog just yet but IT’S COMING, just you wait! So far, I’m really enjoying all of the premieres and want to give a special shout out to the under-appreciated Scorpion on CBS and The Good Place on NBC. What premieres did you love this month? As for movies and the like, whoa.
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".
