The currency exchange rate makes a huge difference for some of us. This past year has been like running faster just to stay in place.

Compared to a couple of years ago:

I have more and better content, reputation, visitor loyalty, and personal know-how. That results in more dollars from both CPM and CPA.

Unfortunately, those dollars are American, and have become much smaller vs. my local currency. It now takes more US$ to support myself then it did in, say, 2001. If I had my current US$ income plus the old exchange rates, I would be rockin'

This is why I am starting to work more towards non-US content, traffic, sponsors, and currencies, especially since I don't have much confidence in a US$/US- Economy recovery in the next four years or so.
