Blogging Harder for the Money – The Fall of the US Dollar

Posted By Darren Rowse 24th of October 2007 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

Yesterday I was interviewed by an Australian Financial Review journalist about how the falling US dollar is impacting my business. There’s not much to say except that:

  • 95% of my income comes to me in US dollars.
  • 5 Years ago when I started experimenting with blogging for money the US dollar bought about $1.80 AUD.
  • Yesterday it was buying about $1.11 AUD (approximately a 40% reduction)


I’m no economist – but I know I’m working a lot harder to earn the same amount of money these days.

  • I was just getting caught up on ProBlogger in my bloglines when I came across this article…

    Man, this really hit home for me too. I am living in Australia running a free myspace layouts site with 90% of income coming from US.

    Thanks for the reminder Darren of just how low it has sunk – OUCH!
