Divi Builder offers 38 modules (outside the WooCommerce modules) that you can use on your design. One of which is the Blurb module. Blurb is a module that combines text and image content. You can use the Blurb module to add any element that contains text and image (or icon) to the page you are working on. For instance, you can use it to show the list of the services offered by your (or your client’s) company.
Not only you can use the Blurb module to display static content, but you can also use it to display dynamic content. For the image element, you can set it to display the featured image of the blog post, author profile picture, and the site logo. While for the text element, you can set it to display the page title, page excerpt, publication date, page author, author bio, site title, site tagline, current date, and custom fields.
