Do you ever get burned out from spending too much time on a web site?

There are a couple of sites that I spend much too much time on and one of them is mylot. Every couple of days I have to take a break because I feel like I just can't think any more in normal terms...lol. It's bad when I fall asleep thinking of discussions I've written or want to write or the members here. I actually woke up one morning with my fingers typing in the air...now THAT is bad. Is there a site or sites that you get burned out on because you find yourself spending too much time on them?

Well, can't say as I've gotten that bad yet....yet....yet... But I do probably spend to much time here, but then again, I have all my chores done and my friends are here so it isn't like I have time otherwise with friends. I don't watch TV so I compare my time on the PC with my husbands time in front of the tV -and he is in front of the TV more than i am on the PC! He gives me a hard time about how much time I am on, but I tell him, "you shut off the tv and I'll get off the PC". He hasn't taken me up on that yet! It is rather quiet after that challenge tho!

Well i spend a lot of time on all money making sites. And it stress me out sometimes because i work 47 hours a week and then an hour of money making sites in the morning and immediately wehn i get home from work. So i think it´s burning me out sometimes. So i´m really looking at sites which doesn´t take too much time and quit those who are taking lots of times except for mylot because mylot is awesome.

lol. That is funny! The same thing happened to me when i was a teenager and i used to spend all my time on IRC, its one of the first instant chats, possibly THE first. I woke up one morning with my hands in the air thinking i was typing lol. It really tells you you spend too much time at the keyboard doesn't it?! I was on mylot over a year ago for a few months, and i was on here every day, typing away and typing away, and i DID get burned out and bored of the site so i left. But now that i have had a break, I have been coming back everyday, every time i get a few spare minutes. lol i hope i dont get burned out again. I really do like it here. It's just you get tired of the same questions, and its hard to come up with something that someone else hasn't already re-vistited 6 times!!

I do believe that myLot is the only site I spend a great deal of time on, ctry. I have pared down the amount of time I spend on other sites. Occasionally, I will visit one of my other sites for a good while because I feel that I have been neglectful toward them. I started back spending more time on Yahoo! Answers because I still enjoy going there.
