Meanwhile, In Montana began as a just for fun Facebook page in October of 2015.
That page has always and will remain intended to share a little bit of everything Montanans can relate to from all angles. To share funny memes and to make fun of ridiculous national and in-state news and politics. To do so with a humorous, thick skinned, witty angle and tone. Not just another warm and fuzzy Montana page. There are plenty of those! A page more for what might be called thick skinned Montanans versus thin skinned wimps who get offended easily by everything.
Why this site if you have the page?
Sometimes what I share gets me blocked! After being blocked countless times for ridiculous reasons and realizing the power that Facebook gives mobs of trolls who can easily get pages and people blocked by deciding amongst themselves to report posts, I obtained the meanwhileinmontana.com domain as a backup plan. I committed to the idea that each time I was blocked from Facebook, I would further develop this site for us. As you can now see, I’ve been blocked quite a bit! I did this so we could eventually build our own social network where they can’t block any of us for having thick skin. We now have our own fully functional, made in Montana alternative to Facebook right here. Only this site is better because it is at your disposal instead of you to theirs.
As Dad always said “It’s better to be a smart ass than a dumb ass!” 😆 😆
For some reason those from out of state wanting to move here, and even some in Montana, think Montana is full of saints with every citizen having an ignorant acceptance of their big city ways. They are cruising facebook and see a page title Meanwhile in Montana and think “Hey, another warm and fuzzy Montana facebook page where I can spread my socialist agenda” When they like, follow and begin to see real Montanans sharing and commenting, they are often surprised. And then for the most part they stick around and engage. Those who disagree then report posts and pages, which don’t actually go against any policy facebook has, but doesn’t fit their socialist agenda for how people are supposed to think according to them, they troll a page and its posts and get the page blocked by reporting them.
As long as you don’t bring your failed antics, politics and big city thinking from other places and try to import and implement them here, you will likely be welcomed. We will however vehemently discourage you and evict you with a smile if you don’t. Do a little research on The Montana Vigilantes to get an idea of how real Montanans still think.
For those expecting that type of page, they were, and are still often shocked! But after hanging out and following for a while, most stick around and engage with our thick skinned, Montana way of thinking. The type of thinking and engagement most of us share around the camp fire having a beer or a cup of coffee. Or even around the job site or ranch.
The jokes and memes shared there have always been very witty and humorous and even sometimes corny. Very much the same as the humor the founder shared with hundreds of people by email in the past.
Thanks for looking. Join to engage.
