There are more internet journals than you can shake browser at. Nowadays, some established print journals (TriQuarterly, for example) are becoming internet publications. So it's almost too easy to get sucked into Page vs. Cyber-Page debates when talking to other poets.
As a reader-
There is nothing like holding printed materials in your hand. The texture of the cover. The smell of the ink. The tactile experience of turning each page. The process lends itself to exploration. So I tend to "discover" poets to add to my list of favorites, more often in the pages of print journals.
On the other hand, the availability of online publications is great when you are looking for a specific poet. When someone catches your eye or piques your curiosity, it's great to have Google point out where you can immediately read more of their work.
As a poet-
I try to take advantage of both worlds. It's nice to know that I've got some poems "out there" in the pages of some print issues that might get read by people I will never meet.
But it's also good to know that if any of those people like one of my poems that they've stumble upon, they can easily find a few more floating around in cyberspace if they consult the Google oracle..
I should try to keep those kind of links updated on this blog, so here are a few to start with:
Three poems in an old issue of Southern Ocean Review
and one in an old issue of Tryst
