How to type a paragraph of text in one place but have it populate on 100 pages?

I am building a site that will have about 100 blog posts. Every blog post must have 2 separate blocks of the same text on every post. How can I type that text in one spot and have it populate on all 100 blog posts so if I ever have to change the text I can just change it in one place instead of editing 100 blog posts.

I apologize I dont know the proper terminology for this.I searched and could not find the answer. My apologies if this has already been answered. Thank you so much.

There isn't a built in feature that can do this so you will require some custom code to be written. If you'd like help writing this, please provide us with more details, including a working link to the blog, details of the text you'd like to add and how it must be formatted/styled. This will allow the community to suggest solutions.

ok thank you for letting me know it is not a built-in feature. I hacked a work-around for it. I created a not-linked blog and put the text in the excerpt. Then on the public blog page, I inserted a summary block and chose the not linked page. Now that I know it requires custom code, I would rather hire someone to do it for me than try to figure it out and ruin the code of my website. Is there a section on this forum to find people who are available for future reference? Thanks so much for all your help.

You can post your problem to some groups on FB to hire a dev, eg: Squarespace Community, Squarespace Customization Resource Group.

However, If you want to add some same simple text for all posts, just let me which text + share link to a blog post + where position, we can give code to achieve this.
