Zennie Abraham started Zennie62.com blog in Oakland, and it has been in existence since 2005, when it was called “Zennie’s Zeitgeist” and hosted on Blogger.com. The Zennie62 focus has always been politics, news, sports, and tech, with a healthy dose of celeb pop culture, and pop culture.
In 2013, Zennie Abraham changed Zennie62.com, or Zennie62blog.com to a unique new news aggregator format. It’s a cross between The Drudge Report and Google News. Zennie62.com is the only news aggregator that markets the source of the news right in the title of the post. You can readily click over to the news source and the news aggregator it was listed on.
But the Zennie62.com news aggregator is also still a standard blog, but the posts are designed to be featured at the top section of the front page, and also in other Zennie62 blogs that are part of the Zennie62Media network. Thus, a blog with the category tag of “Oakland” will also be at our Oakland Focus blog, and so on.
Regarding blogs and bloggers here, there are 48 listed authors including such luminaries as Davey D, Julie Buehler, Melissa Rubin, David Squires and Ken Debro. (You can learn more about our authors at the “Bloggers” section.)
Zennie Abraham is the Founder and Executive Producer, and one of the bloggers / vloggers as well. The long time YouTube Partner (who also created Oakland’s first true blog “Oakland Focus” and its newest blog Oakland News Now) vlogs on a daily basis and he and Zennie62 bloggers go to events like CES Las Vegas, TechCrunch Disrupt, The Crunchies, Wonder Con, Comic Con, and the Democratic National Convention, twice in 2008 and in 2012.
