So sometimes it just feels like a job reviewing here, which is how I look at it some days.

Because I don't have the time, I don't read a lot of fics that are long or have a lot of chapters posted to them. It would take me months to catch up to a fic, and by then the author would have posted several more chapters that I would want to read. Or, on the other hand, I could finally catch up to the fic and be ready to write a review, only to find that the author fell off the face of the Internet.
Man, you've pretty much summed up, point for point, my entire experience reviewing fanfiction (as well as the whole "drifting away from the fandom" part). (You won't find much of it here; I don't post here very often.)

Although in my case, sometimes it's just because I'm simply totally uninterested in the subject matter, and my mind literally will not let me read on in a fic.
