Perhaps it's because Freshly Pressed is in English language or maybe Freshly Pressed tends to reflect impulsive choices by staff who are Western/North American in culture, perspective, but this is a casual observation of what tends to be highlighted:
*usually the blogger is Western educated (which includes Western style education in other countries)
*possibly at least high school level education (we do have some teens here who are good bloggers themselves)
*tendency to choose blog articles that have covered same topics from several different angles: books/reading, blogging (great), jogging/running, bicycling (well, I am a cyclist too!), cooking (this is most creative in terms of globally diverse perspective)..anything else.
Maybe we can get some Freshly Pressed on ...cricket, lacrosse, canoeing, cross-border shopping, fall of the Euro vision, difficulty of learning a 2nd/3rd language, poverty, child abuse, etc.
The blog I need help with is cyclewriteblog.wordpress.com.
