As you already know, I decided to post my recap today instead of Monday. I wanted to make sure my Thanksgiving recap had its own feature đ™‚ This post will have a lot of photos from my random week, but with fewer words (straight to the point.) I have a busy day today! I need to get all of my stuff packed for my flight tomorrow morning, go for a run, head to an appointment, pick up a couple of things at the mall, pack the dog’s items and drop them off with my parent’s and head uptown by three!
Is it already the week of Thanksgiving? Honest question. Where in the world has the time gone, and why is this year going by so fast? I had a feeling that December would fly by so quickly, so I decided to put my Christmas decorations up last night so I could enjoy it longer. While Kyle and I were out walking the dogs in the evening, neighbors everywhere were putting up their lights. It inspired me to put up my Christmas tree! I’ll do the outdoor lighting after Thanksgiving.
Sometimes, there are weekends when I feel like joining every activity, dining out at new places, and exploring new places. Last weekend was far from one of those. Kyle and I planned on renting a cabin and exploring a new town, but we both were too exhausted to do it. We ended up rescheduling the trip and planted ourselves at home all weekend long. Staying home was by far one of our best decisions. Another great surprise was forgetting that I ordered a Blue Apron box for the weekend getaway.
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".
