About This Blog
I’m Kay- also known as The Great Zambini- and Out of The Hat is a lifestyle blog. I focus on creating content that will inspire others to live their maximum lifestyle on a minimum budget, and to help refuel the creative fires. I want to provide near magical solutions to everyday problems and generally think outside of the box. I really like thinking outside of the box. It confuses mimes everywhere ;)
In case you were curious, because this is a kind of abstract name, I am, in fact, not named Zambini. That’s completely a code name I made up for myself when I was eighteen because I thought it was very amusing. Honestly, I still think it’s very amusing, and it’s been a few years since I started- maybe I didn’t grow up as much as I thought I did if I still hang on to a crummy joke like that. My actual name is Kay and I write full time as a professional writer, both on this website, and on K.G.Wilkie where I write about my adventures writing YA novels. That, and I also write said novels. It’s more than any decent sensible human would sign themselves up for- especially when you consider that it’s now officially my job to keep up all the social media outlets for two different writing outlets as well. I guess that goes to show I’m not the most sensible and practical person and prefer to live a little more optimistically. I took a short break on this blog where I did only occasional posting while I was grinding through college, but now I’m back full time so there will be no radio silence ever again. Yay!
I also occasionally write updates about myself, from my travels to new hobbies to just living in the DC area. I feel like I’m always doing something, so there should be some posts that will amuse you no matter what your are interested in.
In the past I did a lot of different styles of writing on this blog, from poetry to novels to blogging to live storytelling which isn’t technically writing at all, so don’t be surprised if there’s a variety in content on here. That said going forward I have determined to limit how much creative writing I post on this blog specifically and focus instead mainly on my diy tutorials and opinion posts so you’ll have to click over to my writing blog if you miss my fiction posts (though you can still access all of them in my archives because I couldn’t bear to delete them).
In case the name made you curious, I am not a magician. I’m actually completely terrible at magic tricks though my neighbor growing up was a professional magician and he tried his darnedest to teach me. I do, however, think some of my solutions and posts are pretty magical, so that’s where the name came from.
