Travel these days is about more than visiting monuments or attractions. When picking a new destination to visit, travelers are now looking for ways to enjoy the local food scene. If you’re planning a trip to Kansas City, Missouri, check out my foodie’s guide to the city. Once you finish drooling over tasty food, visit IHG’s Kansas City Hotels City Guide to book a room. It’s Kansas City. You can’t make a foodie list and not include BBQ, so starting with it seemed like the best way to go.
My Facebook messenger app dinged and I saw the message asking if I was free on certain dates. The dates ran together with my arrival for my first Disney Social Media Moms Conference but I had a feeling I didn’t want to say no. I responded yes I was free and shortly after received an invite I never expected. Over the past fifteen months, I’ve shared about my Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 experience, that started from that message.
Spring break is right around the corner in our neck of the woods and we are working on our plan for that week. Last year we did a staycation and this year we are looking at doing the same thing. If you’re looking for great ideas for spring break then check out Medieval Times. They are currently running a BOGO special that can help you save money while enjoying spring break. My family and I visited the Baltimore Medieval Times Castle last summer and we loved it.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
