How to prevent burnout: Ferguson edition

Don’t engage the trolls.

Try to uphold your policies for commenters, but don’t let it be a time-suck.

Have someone you can vent to.

Unplug. Or at least put your phone down.

Recognize when you don’t have to do everything.

Be committed. Keep your goal in mind.
