It’s here folks – a New Year. We trudged through the end of 2017 just ready for a change – ready to take on the new hope of a promising year with a vengeance. This year will #bebetter. We’re moms – we are ready to take on this challenge like Travis Rice eyeing up a never attempted powder mountain cliff – unchartered territory is our specialty. Cereal lovers – brace yourselves because they just dropped some incredible new mixups you immediately want in your pantry.
This post was sponsored by Asurion as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. We’ve all been there. You get that dreaded pop-up that says you’re out of room on your phone. Every. Single. Time you go to catch the cutest photo of your kids doing something that no other kid can ever do, right? Short of saying F it and running to the Apple store to get a phone with more space (next time I’ll get the largest size! ), how can you organize your items quickly and easily?
Dr Pepper Snapple Group® sponsored this post. All opinions are mine and mine alone. If you haven’t noticed, the current trend is to seek happiness. Individual happiness. But I think the secret is in our relationships. No matter how exhausted you feel after cooking and cleaning for 20 people in your home all day for Thanksgiving, or how horrible your last road trip with three moms and five kids was, you come out of it feeling fulfilled.
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".
