As you’ve probably been well aware of, I’ve been living and breathing all things Gutenberg since attending WordCamp US last year. And while I have a few irons in the fire, with a change as profound as the new block editor, there’s not a better time to dive in and continue exploring… cue CoBlocks!
So far, I’ve built my WordPress theme Tabor, to be officially 100% Gutenberg-ready, started building Writy, a Gutenberg-centric writing experience for publishers, and now—releasing CoBlocks, a beta suite of Gutenberg blocks for content marketers.
Publish beautiful content with CoBlocks
Building on top of Gutenberg, CoBlocks leverages the new block editor to add even more functionality. Space out content, drop in social icons, add click to tweet elements, insert gifs, deploy pricing tables, and more.
Seriously, CoBlocks is all about providing the tools to level-up your content marketing game. I’m not building “just another Gutenberg block plugin“, and you won’t find super
useless generic blocks in CoBlocks.

From the start, I wanted to build a suite of blocks that is dead-set on helping folks publish rich content, grow audiences and super-charge content marketing strategies.
Download CoBlocks today
I have already uploaded CoBlocks to the WordPress Plugins Directory a couple weeks ago and the plugin has already reached 100+ active installations. And before you install the CoBlocks plugin, please make sure you have Gutenberg also installed — naturally. If you’d like a WordPress theme that has been fine-tuned for Gutenberg and CoBlocks, try out the free CoBlocks WordPress theme. The CoBlocks theme is pretty similar in style to my popular theme Tabor, although the later is much more robust (and also works flawlessly with CoBlocks). All in all, the CoBlocks theme is essentially a starting ground to get your feet wet with Gutenberg and CoBlocks.
