“Hi, My name is Assa Cisse, a Toronto based lifestyle influencer. My blog, My Curves & Curls aims to inspire and educate women and girls around the world about loving their bodies.” These are the two sentences I use to introduce my blog to brands and other influencers. If someone had told me 20 years ago that I would own a blog that aimed at educating women and girls about self-esteem and confidence, I would have called them crazy. It never even crossed my mind. Why?
These past few weeks got meÂ feeling like Spring. Mother Nature teased us just a bit and then we are now back in winter. I amÂ already done with spring cleaning my closet but have done little shopping to fill the gap. To be honest, I have been busy roaming around decor andÂ furniture stores because we are ready to decorate our living room. I cannot wait to tell you all about it in future posts as this post is all about the latest plus size Spring piecesÂ you need in your closet.
After blogging for many years, the question about where to buy affordable plus size clothing in Canada still pops up on my feed now and then. To be honest, this question is a little hard to answer because what might be affordable to me might not be for you.We can least agree that a piece of clothing under $50 is affordable to most. If you’re a long time reader, you already know most of the items I wear on this blog are accessible to everyone.
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".
