Let me tell you about the exciting world of online deodorant purchasing.

Sometime early this morning, I got my 3000th follower here at the Green-Walled Tower. It may seem pretty easy to follow a tower around, since it doesn’t move, but I try to jump around to various topics, to make things interesting. I just want to let you know, dear followers, that I appreciate all of you. Mostly the ones who have actual blogs since what I love most about blogging is forming relationships, but I don’t want to leave out the ones who are clearly spam as well. I’m looking at you, directpaybiz01.wordpress.com. I may never follow your blog back or even visit it, but I appreciate you.

I was going to do a feature about my 3000th follower, and then I found out that it was deodorantonline, which made me really want to do a feature on it. I don’t know about you, but I’m still buying my deodorant in a store, like a caveman, instead of exploring the exciting world of online deodorant purchase. Speaking of cavemen (kind of), one of their fragrances is Yeti, because nothing says sexy like smelling like the Abominable Snowman. Other fragrances include IQ (duh!), Delve (for you dwarves out there), and Alter Ego, for those of you who happen to be Superman, or are just sneaking around behind someone’s back.


Sorry, deodorantonline. I'll always be a Power Bacon man. For those special occasions, when you want your armpits smelling like a hearty breakfast.

I’m not saying you should buy deodorant online, but I’m also not saying you shouldn’t. Follow your heart. But if you do, know that all their stock is marked down 2%. Some of it is even slashed as much as 4% off! Holy cow!

By the way, if none of that interests you, check out the blog of my most recent follower, Being MG. She is a real person, a fellow writer, and a fellow Friday Fictioneer. Check out her work; it’s good stuff.
