Hi Rob, what country/region have you selected currently? If I change from UK to eg. India, I can then select appropriate local feeds eg. Hindustan Times, India Today or NDTV amongst others. When I go back out of settings those feeds will update with their respective current news items.
So assuming you have UK in your list if you select it you should have The Guardian, The Independent, Financial Times etc available, along with all the other feeds appropriate to the UK such as Motoring (in Lifestyle category) or Motor Sports (in Sports category).
The amount of topics available is a bit gobsmacking to say the least and I'm fast becoming a BlinkFeed addict!!
