Oh My Glow! A Belated Christmas Gift To All Of You! Hi all! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. Let’s face it, we all love to indulge this time of year and there is nothing wrong with that. But like everyone, after Christmas and even into the New Year, my body literally shuts down and calls it quits on anything sweet once the holidays are over. Maybe it’s the former dancer in me, but I’ve always been a pretty active person.
The Holidays Are Here!! I truly love this time of year! It’s a special time for traditions, (both old and new) the food, but most of all, getting together with family and friends. I meant to post this two weeks ago, however, I have been on a crazy sales deadline for work that has had me working 12 hr days of late. So forgive me, thank god , that is over!!! Here’s a small photo essay of how I decorated our home this year. I am totally proud of the fact, that I literally did this all by myself.
The Holidays are officially in gear! And things are hectic. It’s hard enough between work, decorating and other household duties to get through that you haven’t even begun to figure out who to buy for. Usually, I have my gifts all bought and paid for by now. But this year, I’m a tad behind so who doesn’t love to get gifts for friends and family that are for one thing, ABSOLUTELY beautiful., and second, that won’t break your bank.
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".
