Thoughtpick Blog is on an indefinite break.

To all our readers, we would like to thank you so very much for learning and discussing social media campaigns with us throughout the past two years. We have decided that Thoughtpick blog, as enjoyable as it was, needs to take less of our time.

We are busy running our popular app, Tweepi, which is taking most of our time. We will continue publishing posts on the Tweepi Blog. Don’t forget to follow @tweepi and if you have any comments and would like to get in touch with us, just use our contact us form.

For those that don’t know what we’ve been doing, the best place to start is the “Learn Social Media by Example” category. If you are running a business of any size, or your job involves marketing an idea, you’ll love our Learn Social Media by Example stories.

We always love to discuss new ideas or help anyone with social media campaign discussions. All you need to do is contact us.

Thank you all.

Echoing Godin’s question: “What did you ship in 2010?

From all of us here at Thoughtpick: Happy New Year!

Digging more into the site and the campaign itself, I got less and less excited about this campaign. Here is why…

Best “Server Down” Message Ever. Kudos to Grooveshark!

I got their server-down message while visiting Grooveshark.com. But, it’s not your regular “server is down” message, thus this post! Read and laugh.
