Zennie62 Blog and Vlog Network
Zennie62 started with Zennie62.com, our blog that was the replacement for Zennie Abraham's first World news blog called "Zennie's Zeitgeist," and the famous Zennie62 YouTube channel. The idea of Zennie62 is to provide coverage and commentary on the news of the day in a multi-media form. So it's not just text, but videos, and real-time videos using platforms featuring Vidoco.com and Tout.com for 15-second videos, and other apps.
But it all started with Zennie62 on YouTube.
This pioneer YouTube channel was started in 2006, and became a YouTube Partner Channel in 2008. Over that time and to date, almost 3,000 videos have been made and our videos have been seen over 50 million times to date, and as much as over 200,000 times a day.
Zennie62 has covered everything from the historic inauguration of Barack Obama as America's first African American President, to his second inauguration, the Democratic National Convention twice, the NFL Draft annually, Comic Con and Wonder Con annually, TechCrunch The Crunchies, TechCrunch Disrupt, and The Oscars Red Carpet and The Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party annually.
Now, Zennie62 is more than just the blog, it's a network of over 70 blogs, and it started with Oakland Focus Blog and San Francisco Focus Blog, and branched out to include blogs representing Atlanta, Cleveland, New York, Miami, Houston, Las Vegas, London, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Richmond, CA. And we have blogs on the restaurant scene in San Francisco, Oakland, and New York City, as well as a range of blogs on the NFL, the NFL Draft, The Super Bowl, The NHL, and other sports.
Zennie62 blog mainly consists of posts from Zennie Abraham and from Nikky Raney, our executive editor and Melissa Rubin, who blogs about her Baltimore Ravens, and pretty much whatever she wants to. We have also featured posts from Julie Buehler, the first female sports radio show host in California. On YouTube, both Zennie and Nikky have vlogs for news commentary, and they have been joined by Jessica Mann. In all, Zennie62 blog has over 40 bloggers signed up to date, and we're looking to add more of them.
