New look Sunshine Coast Daily:Your paper, your yarns

IF NEWSPAPERS were people I reckon sometimes they would be the sort of people who really loved the sound of their own voice.

You know the sorts.

But as much as we like the sound of our voice - the Daily really loves to listen to you.

We think one-way conversations are lonely and, let's face it, a bit boring.

Earlier this year, on our website we launched Your Story, which is a place where you can share your stories.

These yarns were so good, we started running them both online and in our print editions.

We even ran one on the front page.

Then we started thinking, this paper is your newspaper, what if we created a little more room in it for your voice to be heard?

Maybe you fancy yourself as a citizen journalist - the equivalent to our Bill Hoffman.

Maybe you're the one in your town that everyone goes to to find out the gossip.

Maybe you have a big bee in your bonnet and want to set the record straight.

Or maybe, you just have a yarn that you want to share.

We've created a new section in our Saturday edition called Your Saturday, which starts on page 22 of today's paper.

It's a place where we can get to know each other better.

It's a collection of stories and photos all about people, and mostly contributed by you.

From the best of your online photos or Facebook opinions, to the library's tremendous weekly history piece, you can meet our team in this section and, of course, share your yarns.

To contribute email editorial@scnews.com.au with Your Story in the subject line, or easier still, visit http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/your-story/ and fill out the form.
