You can use variables within the content block that will be replaced when the block is displayed. For example, if you create a content block, say id=1:

My name is %%name%%

by using the shortcode

when displayed it will appear as My name is John Doe.

This will be useful for developers when iterating through a list of posts or categories, for example, and will provide a reusable template.
