This WordPress theme is a slick way to turn your blog into Facebook’s Timeline

Staying true to the methods used by Facebook, there’s a banner on the rigth side that will take you to each section, broken down by month. The oversized header image gives you buttons for your social connections and it allows you to showcase posts, as well.

Timeline WP is a beautifully designed, easy-to-manage theme. Of course, as it is with Facebook, the more video and photo content that you add, the better that it will look. At any rate, it’s free so you should definitely give it a download if it suits your fancy.
