I don't understand <aside>. How is it helping me?
Seems pointless but maybe I just don't understand it yet.

Aside is simply an element, just like
<div> that allows you to group together content that is related to the main content but not in itself main/unique content.
To put it another way, here's how Mozilla describes the element.
"The HTML <aside> element represents a portion of a document whose content is only indirectly related to the document's main content. Asides are frequently presented as sidebars or call-out boxes"
If for example you wanted to write the HTML code for a blog post, you'd write the individual article in your
article tag and then include the post information in a sibling
All of which is designed to give your HTML structure semantic meaning.
