I've come to the conclusion that sitting on top of my refresh button like an insane stalker is not going to work for me anymore. I like to participate in Gawker and Kinja, but the fear of "missing out" has unnecessarily chained me to my laptop. My email and social media has been changed so that I get pinged when I receive a message. Hopefully, I can do the same for my Gawker/Kinja account in the future, but until then I probably won't be participating as much. I'm not as excited about getting into yelling matches as I once was.
