Let's discuss member stories. How did you start with blogging? (not websites but only blogging)

I had the idea of starting a social network mainly targeted to teens who just wanna break free and enjoy. I bought the domain 'Let's Sermo'. 'Sermo' means conversation in Latin. So basically it means 'Let's talk'.

I had calculated the costs of the social network - $1000 for the design, $500 for the script and around $3000 for the promotion.

I was totally pumped up to the next Mark Zuckerberg :P
Then I some how came across a few social networks that had failed completely. And then one of my friends drilled it into my brains that I need at least 100k$ (maybe an over/under estimation)to make a decently sized community.

Then I just decided to leave it. But then I had bought the domain, and I really liked it. So I decided to blog at Let's Sermo.

Basically, that is how it started and it surely is my best blog ever.

What's your story?
