While a lot of people have jumped on the blogging bandwagon, the web is crowded and too easy to ignore. I think the best way to get noticed is good old fasioned newsprint. You'd be surprised how cheaply one can get 1,000 copies of a 11x17 format newspaper printed. It's usually less than $200. You can buy second-hand newspaper boxes and racks and fix them up. Many businesses will let you put them in their stores if you ask.
Start a local weekly or even monthly newspaper. Supplement your print audience by looking into community radio or local-access cable. You have to start somewhere, and it ain't going to be at the top.
Don't hate the media. Become the media!
