Grit magazine was formerly a weekly newspaper, popular in rural America
during much of the 20th century. In the early 1930s, it targeted small town,
rural families with 14 pages plus a fiction supplement. By 1932, it had a
circulation of 425,000 in 48 states, and 83% of its circulation was in towns
of less than 10,000 population. It was founded in 1882 as the Saturday
edition
of the Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Daily Sun and Banner  

Beginning with the September 2006 issue, Grit converted to an all-glossy,
bound magazine format with a bi-monthly schedule.

    I’ll admit that I got involved with them for a short time. When I tried to go around selling the thing, people would ask me why I fiddled with Grit when I should be peddling the Journal or Oregonian…..which I also did. I gave up after a few months of not being able to get rid of the Grits I was sent.
