I am working in Iraq now and gettting 7800 dollars tax free a month, and while this is great and all my wife and child live in sweden. I am losing over a thousand dollars a month because of the Dollar/Kronor. We must understand that this like any other entity that is delicate, it becomes a balancing act. The dollar will bounce back. If you think of how much the dollar fluctuates in a given year this is really nothing. Just be patient and hold on. Ken

We sell our software in American dollars and mainly to American companies, but with a weaker dollar we have been selling more to UK and the EU. Most of our staff are in Canada, and that ofcourse costs us more due to the weak US dollar and the strong Canadian one. The increased business from Europe over weighs the increased overheads due to the conversion rates.

As a Canadian, I'm proud to see that Canadian Dollar is getting stronger. Although I do realize that it's mainly because US dollar is getting weaker. I never thought about bloggers losing money because of that (I guess, because I didn't monetize my blog yet), but I know it's hurting many industries. I'm personally affected with the higher interest rates on mortgages. Looks like I'll never be able to afford my dream house if it continues this way.

This show that bloggers are susceptible to the same problem as other global businesses - I'm not sure there is an easy way round it. I guess it's another case for having many different monetization strategies and not putting your eggs in one basket.

Many people would prefer American dollar being stronger. But for this, you need to make Chinese to allow their own currency to float. American dollar is not in a good condition and the rest of the world should enjoy cheap services provided by on-line American companies.

I hear you on this, the Australian dollar has been floating between 82-86c US where as 18 months ago it was 65c...simply it hurts, all of my earnings are in USD and every 1c move costs me a lot of money, and if it hits parity $1=$1 well...I might need more work then :-)

I'm UK based as well but don't really have a major problem with the fact that the vast majority of online business is done in USD. For starters, most of the money I make online I put back into the business in terms of purchasing domain names or hosting through US companies for the simple reason being that they're cheaper than their UK counterparts. $15 for a .com purchased from a UK company or $6 through a US company? No argument. Equally why pay £15 for hosting when you can buy it for $15?

I'm from the UK, and it's roughly $2 to £1, due to our incredibly strong economy. It hurts me so much, especially when paypal take their cut. Of course, there are plus sides, I travel a fair bit and paying 20p for a bottle of beer in some european countries is fabulous :), and this year it's cheaper for me to fly to New York, do my Christmas shopping on high value goods, and fly back than it is for us to buy the same goods in the UK.
