RE: Make a difference
There are quite a few people reading both paper and online versions of local, small papers. Most politically engaged people do it to keep abreast of local levies and laws being proposed and such. Town meetings are full of people of all descriptions, and they usually have read the local news. This is exactly the rural demographic one needs to reach.

RE: Make a difference
I'll make another observation here. Anyone can post on facebook, twitter, internet forums, etc., so the signal-to-noise ration is much lower than in a newspaper, which has certain standards (for example, if our own socialist view sends a letter to the editor of a newspaper, it's not getting printed -- not because of what he says, but because he can't say it coherently). Because of this, I think a letter that gets published in a newspaper is a lot more likely to be taken seriously by serious readers.

On the few occasions when I've had letters published in print, I brag about it -- I tell my friends, show them the newspaper with my letter, etc. I don't bother to tell anyone when I post on the internet, because, well, anyone can do that. Not just anyone can get published in print.
