PressWork is a free, open-source theme framework built for WordPress 3.2 using HTML5 and CSS3. It was created out of a need for a framework that catered to all types of users.
As developers, we needed it to be powerful enough to allow for complete customization, which is why every element in PressWork can be hooked into. But they also didn’t want to scare away beginners and that’s why they came up with the PressWork front-end toolbox, which gives users the ability to change their site’s layout and design in a live preview environment while taking advantage of all the bells and whistles that WordPress already has to offer.
They love WordPress! That’s why PressWork is FREE! They believe in the open-source community as well as maintaining current web standards.
Requirements: WordPress 3.2+

It’s always a frustrating process starting a Wordpress Theme from scratch. You always end up grabbing code snippets from a bunch of different themes and your site files usually end up looking like a jumbled mess of borrowed code and band-aids.
Bones was created after years of editing and reusing the same template to develop custom sites. It came from trial and error and tons of experience customizing templates. HTML5 & well written & documented CSS.

We were just getting too much bored by the routinous HTML coding, as this process quickly and utterly destroys the inspiration and pleasure of truly artistic creation. Well, if you remember that frustration about having to code HTML+CSS after the final brushstrokes are laid onto your beautiful design, you’ll understand.
Divine was created for designers, which translates the artistic language of effects, brushes and filters into HTML code. Divine creates websites from Photoshop to WordPress promptly. Absolute Free.

Google has acquired Feedburner in 2007, and they have started migrating the feeds hosted on Feedburner to Googleâ€™s servers recently. Google also announced that they expect to get all the feeds transferred by February 28, and they mentioned that after that day Feedburner feeds will start reporting a 404. So most of us should have already migrated our feed to Google’s servers.
Because of the migiration, Google has released a new API for the feed stats which makes our Feed Analysis does not work properly. Therefore, we have decided using the new API for Feed Analysis, which makes migrated feeds work properly. However, if you have not migrate your feeds to Google’s servers, Feed Analysis will no longer work for you, please do the migration as soon as possible. Go and analysis your Google feeds now.

We love Technorati Stats tools. Many of bloggers might know them already, but we think we should mention it on BlogPerfume once just in case someone has missed them.We always see which blogs are linking to BlogPerfume by checking our Technorati Authority.
Technorati Authority is the number of blogs linking to a website in the last six months. It is important to note that they measure the number of blogs, rather than the number of links. So, if a blog links to your blog many times, it still only count as +1 toward your authority.
You can check your Technorati with the following URL.
You can always check the number of posts by day about your blog in a period of time easily on a Technorati Chart as well.
Just simply change the YourBlogURL to your blog address (without http://). You can also specify the days, width and height as well. How many links have you got? What is your Technorati Authority?

Alexa let us view the traffic reach, rank and page views of up to 5 sites. Although Alexa is not very accurate in my opinion, it let us compare our traffic with other websites. So that we can estimate how we are doing relatively to others.
Today, we have got a new tool called Feed Compare which let us compare our FeedBurner Feeds Subscriber Numbers with others easily. Just simply type in the FeedBurner Feeds name, e.g. Mashable, or the URL of the FeedBurner Feeds (http://feeds.feedburner.com/BlogPerfume). And then press submit, Feed Compare will then shows the subscriber numbers of different sites on a lovely line chart.
Please note that we have Feed Analysis that can analyse your individual FeedBurner Feeds easily and gives you a full evaluation and detailed report too. As we promised, we would like to create anything related to blogging in order to help our readers. So we are releasing something very nice very soon. Please stay tuned.
