How to select specific catergory when using NEWS

I want to use the NEWS section on a page to show the blogs on my network. I usually write a blog post to introduce them so I thought I would have a page and use the NEWS format on that page. Doing that brings up all the latest posts but I want to select a specific category so it only brings up those blog posts. Can I do that?

Not all the blogs I set up are actually hosted on this network. Some of them want their own hosting. This is why I write a blog post about them.
