I came across this amazing video on Facebook this morning and I just had to post it. A Christmas video that wasn’t about last-minute sales or competitive cousins. The main message is just about remaining thankful, grateful and aware. The only reason why I watched this piece from a local Charlotte church was that it received so many views. I believe it was up to 6 million by the time it came across my stream. What the Forest Hill’s creative team did was something really special.
As a mom of three, I’ve been through it all. There was the diaper stage, the crawling stage, the solid food stage and more! One of my favorite parts of being a mom is getting to see the world for the very first time again through your baby’s eyes. Such joy in exploration! Truth be told, it never gets old. Caleb – who is four years old and in nursery school – is currently learning his alphabet and how to spell his name. When he comes home from school, he tries to sound out whatever he can see.
This photo makes me laugh because it was freezing and I made everyone get out of the car to take the shot. It makes me laugh because my daughter stole my Zara jacket and put it on before I could notice. It makes me laugh because I always have to FORCE my middle child to wear pants and puffer vests even in the coldest of weather. Only I know these things though. You just see five smiling faces — not the story behind them all. And I suppose that’s what makes family so special.
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".
