Block Question for WordPress Experts

Hello #WordPress and #WordPressExperts. I have a question. I am trying to always use the latest version of WordPress, the theme released with the latest version, and the block editor. I am trying to use #Microformats in most posts so that they are consumed correctly for things like RSVP’s, posting to Mastodon through brid.gy, commenting on another blog through #webmentions. My question is this: I have copied blocks from one post to another and this works. I have tried using a plugin to copy a new draft of a post that functioned properly and this works. I have tried reusable blocks and then converting to blocks and it works. But that doesn’t seem to be the best way. What is the non-developers best way to have a template for each thing that I want to do (RSVP, Bookmark, etc.) without installing another plugin? I do have Pods.io and have considered the concept of custom fields. I just don’t know enough about them yet.

    @tmichellemoore Look into “block patterns”.

    @m0bi13 That is a little over my implementation ability. lol I understand the concept. And I think the article is giving me the idea that an implementation tool might help. I skimmed quickly but will read it more carefully later to see if I can incorporate some aspects. Thank you!

    @otto42 I have seen those block patterns. It always seemed like you have to publish them to the WordPress.org site to put them in place. I would love to do that, it’s just that I don’t know if they will all work yet. 😃 Can you implement patterns for your own site without sharing them with the world? I will read up more them.

    @otto42 Are block patterns and patterns (https://wordpress.org/patterns/) the same thing yet different?
