It's pretty typical for a site to have one or two pieces of content that need to be easily edited, but also aren't nodes. For example: text in the footer. There are a number of ways to create this content. We'll use blocks to create this content as this is the easiest way to place content into a specific region without additional helper module. By the end of this lesson you will be able to create custom blocks, and place them into specific regions within your Drupal theme.
