Personal essay is not about college admission only:
Twain, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and other famous essayists wrote them often to share their experiences, thoughts, and reflections.

My hope is that by acknowledging the risks, you’ll be encouraged to implement the strategies necessary to buck this staggering trend. And you can!
Most designers and web developers go mad on UI and UX today. In recent years, this niche overgrows and plays a significant role in many big companies worldwide. It seems everyone wants to be a UX designer and create beautiful websites for ultimate usability.
But there’s a catch:
Visitors don’t come to websites for design. They come for information.
With more than 3 billion searches a day, Google needs to regulate them somehow so all those queries would find the right destination. What helps the search engine with a proper organization is Google local business categories.
Yes, this is that tiny yet essential detail business owners and SEO specialists often forget when fighting for high ranks in Google.
