Have you seen sites that use pull quotes to bring attention to the most important parts of their content? Many top publishers are doing that. Here is how Wikipedia describes this practice:
A pull quote (also known as a lift-out quote) is a quotation or excerpt from an article that is typically placed in a larger or distinctive typeface on the same page, serving to entice readers into an article or to highlight a key topic. The term is principally used in journalism and publishing.
That sounds great but how would you do it without messing up your whole template in the process? You can always do so by doing some CSS styling. These 5 pull quote WordPress plugins can also get the job done:
