The Observer is serving up a new approach to our content

WE ASKED the question, we listened to your answers, and now The Observer is leaping into action.

From next week, expect more stories about the issues you say are essential reading for your busy lives.

While local news and building a better community continues to be our bread and butter, we know Gladstone residents also love their food, travel, lifestyle and gardening articles.

It's a week-long menu, starting with technology on Monday, and what's new in apps, games and on the web.

On Tuesday, journey through Queensland and northern NSW, discovering hidden travel gems.

Family life is front and centre on a Tuesday, as we delve into what makes households tick.

We know you love food and wine and our Easy Eating section now includes a four-page meal planner every Wednesday, along with a Healthy Living guide.

Go Smarter Shopping on Thursday, get out and about with boating, fishing, and camping tips on Friday, then sit back and enjoy the big Weekend read on Saturday.

From movie and book reviews to stars and crosswords, you'll need at least a second cuppa to get through our expanded section.

You'll love The Observer's new approach to everything our readers are cramming into their busy lives!
