The new millennium bell sounded. The steps I heard in the years are echoing on the earth. On the occasion of the reunification, it is full of emotion to review the history of the “Life Space” edition. I deeply realized that to run a good layout of a newspaper, it must be close to life and close to readers. The editors have readers in mind, and readers have newspapers in mind.
Initially, the “Life Space” edition opened up several sections such as “The Lights of Ten Thousand Homes,” “Friends of Health,” and “Life Staff.” The articles chosen were almost all excerpted from other newspapers and magazines and lacked their own characteristics. The corresponding special editions of other newspapers are very similar, and they are similar, and give people similar acquaintances. It is difficult to attract readers.
In order to make the "Living Space" version its own characteristics, get closer to life, and be close to the readers. With the guidance, help, and encouragement of the social leaders, I combined my decades of experiences, experiences, experiences, and personal experiences. He has written and published over 180 life essays. These experiences and observations from life, full of life, and enlightenment and life insights are essays that are not published in other newspapers. They make the layout more colorful and are well received and appreciated by readers.
I often ask myself, "What is the key to the success of the "Living Space" edition, to make it closer to life and close to the readers? Apart from editing your own handwritten articles, what should you rely on?" The reader's distance makes the "Living Space" version a real "living space" for readers, making the reader a master of "Living Space." As a result, the "Life Space" edition successively opened up the "My Way to Health and Fitness" and "Family Story" essay column. To my surprise, the two essay activities have received the enthusiastic support and participation of a large number of readers. An article of manuscripts has been continuously sent to the editorial department. Faced with a large number of readers' contributions, we must carefully review the screening, processing and modification, and the amount of work can be imagined. In particular, there are many manuscripts with good content, poor text, utterances, and typos. It is a pity that such manuscripts are discarded. When I was a young man, I also worked as a correspondent at the grass-roots level. I was fully aware that it was difficult for correspondents to write manuscripts.
Therefore, as long as the manuscript can be used, I will try my best to amend it and use it as much as possible. Unexpectedly, after a few hundred words of manuscripts were submitted to the newspaper, the authors would be pleasantly surprised. The reader Hu Yangan wrote and said: “After I wrote a health and fitness essay in the newspaper, I was thrilled to have the television report in my hand and read it over and over again. I couldn’t let go of it for half a day. I was happy in my heart. If my fitness method can inspire other elderly friends, then I am so happy! Thank you for giving our readers a space of their own, and thank the editors for their hard work." The sincere readers have come to believe that all fatigues and discomforts have vanished, and there is something unspeakable to them.
The "Family Story" essay focuses on the ordinary people's family life. In the seemingly familiar, ordinary and trivial family life, excavation of truth, goodness, beauty, and enlightenment. The essay story is true, reveals the true feelings, enters the person's spiritual space from the person's living space, reflects the philosophy of life, flows the truth on earth, and is well received by readers.
From this period, the "Life Space" version was renamed "People's Lives." I am convinced that as long as editors and readers join hands, work hard together and fight together, they will surely make the "People's Lives" version reach a new level closer to life, closer to readers and truly into the hearts of readers.
