Why Are WordPress’ Reusable Blocks So Helpful?

Do you use reusable blocks? I think they are fantastic! And I use one in every single post (yep, it’s the one at the end of each post).

But why are they so useful? In which circumstances can you use them?

You can use them for advertising

I’ll start with the reason I’m using them. Instead of having a blurb you keep copying and pasting every time, you can create a reusable block to add the product you want to promote at the end of each post.

As I mentioned in my post regarding 3 free ways to promote your book, if your readers come directly from reader (which often happens), they won’t see the widgets on your website. That’s why it is important to do your promotions in your every single post (preferably at the end). You can advertise your book(s) or a product you love and you want to share with others.

You can use them in series

If you start a series of some kind (e.g. daily questions or things like that), you might need to consider having the same image in every post. This is where a reusable block comes in hand. You don’t have to manually add your image every single time. Create a reusable block and then you can add it in every post.

Change all of them at once

Let’s say you don’t like the way a particular block looks like, but you already used it in dozens of posts. If you used the copy/paste method, then you need to go to every single post and manually change that block. However, if you used a reusable block, it is enough to change it in one post and it will automatically change if all of them.

In this writing world, I think we need to use everything we have in had to make our path smoother. The writing itself can be challenging enough, don’t you think?

How often and for what do you use reusable blocks?

PS: If you’re serious about writing and you want to have a long-lasting website that stands out of the crowd, check out one of the best SEO tools out there, Mangools.com, and get on the first page of search engines. You can find my full Mangools review here).


    • Susan, I’m sure you have found the answer to your question already, but if not, the reusable blocks can be created in your blog posts.

      When you’re writing your post, each block has 3 vertical dots on the far right of it. Click on that and you’ll see the option to create a reusable block. Whatever is in that particular paragraph that you’ve written can then be added to whichever page/post you wish.

      I hope I’m clear in my instructions.

  1. Aw thank you so much. I only have a one line paragraph that is exactly the same on every post but because it uses symbols (a heart) from the legacy WP editor I have to copy and paste the line every time from an old post. Now I don’t have to, that’s brilliant. I didn’t know about this facility.
