We do it using a TAG on blogitems we want to show on the homepage:
/api/core/v3/contents?filter=tag(homepage-item) and we explain that this tag may only be used on blogitems that should appear on the homepage.
Appreciate the comment.
We do this currently, so we have a home news group and then within that group we post documents with the tag 'banner' but when we create a blog post in the same group and use the 'banner' tag it doesn't pull through.
(EDIT) - Ive tried using the api structure you use and that has indeed worked! Thanks a million.
Thinking about it a bit more, while your way does work Jordan we want it to pull from the home news group blogs to be extra safe, the risk of anyone being able to use the tag would be too much for our business,
So if anyone has got any info on pulling blog posts from within a specific group would be great - we have a feeling their may be a fault with the API though on jive's side.

After a bit more digging I found another article that suggested the api wasn't worked as its detailed but it did offer up another solution which we've mixed with what we were trying and it has given us what we need
This will only pull blogs from a single group with the tag of banner, so it means no one can by accident (or otherwise) post news to our home page/
