Book Description

Blogging is not a way of life, but it is a way out of the absurdity of the world.

Writer and blogger, Heather Christena Schmidt, crafts surprisingly witty and overwhelmingly snarky commentaries on the world at large on her blog and website, the B(itch)Log on HeatherChristenaSchmidt.com. From problems with technology to random encounters in society, Schmidt plots out daily life as we all experience it, yet often never put into words.

Schmidt does not mince words in her posts, nor does she spare anyone. In B(itch) Against the World: Best of the B(itch)Log on HeatherChristenaSchmidt.com With New Material, she takes on Facebook, Craigslist, Animal Pornography, Cats, Hillbillies, Shoppers, Italians, the Film Industry, Plankers, Parents, Texters, and even a man that sent a poorly written email in response to one of her blog-posts. It would seem that no one is safe from the snappy responses Schmidt folds into her amazingly logical and comedic musings on one B(itch)'s walk through life.

More About the Author

Growing up in Chicago either made me cool or completely crazy; I have yet to determine which. My name is Heather Christena Schmidt. I was born in 1982 and grew up in the south suburbs of the Windy City with my father, a computer programmer and part-time sports writer. My father taught me early on that being yourself and embracing education were perhaps the two most important tasks a person could ever do. I have tried to stay true to those since.

In 2000, after Y2K proved a farce and my father was thoroughly tired of shoveling snow every winter, we decided to move to California to the mini-city of Ventura where my grandmother and grandfather had lived for the majority of their retirement before passing away while I was still in high school. I had just graduated and was ready for college, so California seemed a great opportunity. Unfortunately, over a decade later, I am still shocked by the sheer difference between my childhood home and the place I now call a humble abode. California is rife with personality, drama, stress, varying cultural attitudes (and tensions), narcissism, and a lifestyle that is so ridiculously fast-paced it is a wonder any of these people know where they're going or what they're even doing. Part of the way through graduate school in Philosophy, I realized that writing about my experiences in California was my own path to salvation living with in the Los Angeles sprawl.

My "day job" is to be a writer and editor, although the most important things to me are my immediate family. Besides blogging, I enjoy traveling, wine tasting, reading, art, museum-tripping, reading some more; among other things. I hate to cook, although I am capable of doing it should I find myself in the position of having to. I still live in California but wish I didn't, and surround myself with a unique set of close friends both local and still in Chicago that I could not live without. I love my writers and readers group friends as well; all which encourage me to continue to write in a time where literature and culture is greatly undervalued.

More than anything, I try to still live my life by those two principles my father raised me on: always being myself and valuing education as principle in my ongoing development. As a result, I hold degrees in Political Science and Philosophy, and had a varied work experience in pharmacy and political consulting before becoming a full-time writer. I have been awarded a number of academic distinctions for my undergraduate and graduate work. I also have two academic publications on philosophical topics (which would put you to sleep in an instant were you to read them). Since becoming a full-time writer, I have won poetry contests and submitted a number of short stories to magazines for publication, as well as continued to work on my first novel.

The flip side of those values, though, is that in being myself I am wholly quirky and sometimes crazy. I speak my mind and refuse to patsy around or lie to people for the sake of being as passive as possible. When I see something I know is wrong, I talk about it. This has gotten me called "blunt," "snarky" and "a bitch" on a number of occasions, all of which I am thoroughly proud of. A few years ago a friend began calling me Bitch and within weeks it stuck. The truth, though, is that I think the world needs a lot more bitches, Bitches like me.
