I confess: I have a BUNCH of different little blogs and I sometimes post content from various blogs of mine on HN, if I think a particular piece of writing might interest people here. There is no intent to hide the fact that I am posting my own content when I do post from one of my zillion and one blogs. Here is a more or less complete list of the sites I am guilty of authoring: http://micheleincalifornia.blogspot.com/p/my-sites.html
My name is Michele. That would've been my HN handle, but: http://micheleincalifornia.blogspot.com/2014/03/mz-not-feminist-handle.html
Me: Divorced single mom with health issues + special needs kids. Basically, I don't get out much. That probably explains my relatively high karma here.
Currently, I seem to be the highest ranked openly female member. This is sort of silly because a) I am thousands short of the leaderboard and b) I never managed to get a tech job, even though I have a Certificate in GIS. You would think there would be some woman in tech who was already on the leaderboard. But, apparently not.
