inspiration?

I am a new blogger. I am not really sure what the point of blogging is. For the blogger, a journal of sorts, I guess. For the blog reader, a voyeuristic peek into the daily lives of others. My question is, how to create a blog in which conversation between collective bloggers on one united blogspot might be inspired????
I'm still curious to learn more about my fellow classmates, but not sure how to get this blog moving.....
Why am I trying to organize this? I guess it's obvious I have too much time on my hands. Luxury of riding my bike to work and working mostly at night, I suppose.

O.K., So what's going to get this group talking? Question of the day, Quotation of the day? Are you guys to busy for this blog? Maybe.
Anyway, being the natural born Aries leader that I am, I guess I'll start with the first question.....

IF YOU WON THE JACKPOT LOTTERY AND HAD AN INFINITE SUPPLY OF CASH FOR A ONE YEAR PERIOD, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT AND WHY?

Your answer might be practical, considering your commitments/time constraints etc... and/or fantastical, not taking into consideration the fact that you might have a family to think about and/or a job and other commitments etc...

Practically speaking, I'd hire a reliable contractor to complete the building of my mother's house on Vieques Island. I'd make sure everyone I love had health insurance and a home and zero debt and I'd pay myself a one-shot payment to compensate for time spent on volunteer projects with the local "Women's Alliance" group and the Conservation and Historical Trust of Vieques (They protect the island's bioluminescent bay). I've got to think about the fantastic answer. More later.

I would purchase Canada and force migrate all of the Canadians to the south of the country. Using as much land as possible in the north, I would build a massive warehouse, distribution center, and information network (for the procurement of Christmas wishes and/or the Naughty or Nice list). With the rest of the money, I would hire a talented staff of thousands upon thousands of elves or not elves with the intention of making Santa Claus a reality. After the successful completion of 3 Billion or so toy drops (total derived by mean estimate of naughty attrition), I would then hold an international press conference on December 26th demanding that my face replace the chubby coca-cola Santa’s face on all of the current Christmas paraphernalia, thus creating an indelible legacy for my son.

i am just getting involved with the blogging, and I like to think i would be as practical and altruistic as carmen and have some of dave's sense of humor.

i would seek added security for myself and my loved ones,then see that my writing gets attention in print and visual media, and spend the other half million in charitable pursuits(which might well also be connected with seeing that my writing gets attention.)
