Floated Spotlight Block

Use Cases

The Floated Spotlight block is useful for content creators to point users to another page or story that is relevant to the content they are already viewing. The Floated Spotlight block is a floated block, which allows it to nest nicely into a body of text. With this in mind, it’s recommended to use the Floated Spotlight block in the midst of a more substantial body of copy as to not distract from a more brief piece of writing. When used in conjunction with a few paragraphs of text, the Floated Spotlight block can be a nice way to both break up the text while also pointing users to another important page or article.
