Last night, we attended the Medieval Times Dinner and Live Show in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. I can still hear the crowds cheering for their favorite knights. It is always such a blast when we take the kids because they all really get into it. In fact, my mother told all of us that for her birthday, she wants to head to the Medieval Times Dinner and Live Show too! HA! Can you stand it??! She wants in on the action.
I’m tired y’all. I spent two days in the city this week and I feel like I ran a marathon. What does that mean? Is 40 really a thing? I don’t know. I thought it was just a number??? Apparently not! I would love just to stay in bed all weekend long but… kids. You know, those three little balls of energy that I have to be responsible for until the day I die? They want to eat and go meet their friends and have fun… ugh. Parenting sometimes, amiright? Ahhh – you know I’m teasing.
I definitely am still decorating. So, a lot of the posts that I am putting up will have an overarching theme. You have to see what I did to my bedroom today. Not even anywhere done – but I worked on two of the walls and both my end tables. It’s slowly coming together. I’m feeling really good about it! I found these Marquee Letter Hooks and thought they had a real antique vibe… sort of shabby chic too. Really works with my motif. Maybe it works for you too?
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".
