First from a faucet, then gradually increasing transactions with coinucopia, virvox, therock, coinbase, CBX, and one or two others. Tried small amounts ($10-$20) with each, chose the smoothest operations. Then tried those chosen with larger amounts ($100-$500) and chose smoothest of those. Have narrowed it down to CBX or mtGox (USD deposits via Dwolla).

Prospecting for free stuff on the Internet, though it takes work so in a sense not free.

Ive been doing a lot of reading about bitcoins and Ive come to find the concept incredible and especially so because of the time we live in. Im about to jump into this world, regardless of profit, and I ask of you all how you acquired your first bitcoin and at what cost?
Very slowly (300MH/s) and I have no idea of cost (but don't care because I pay very very little for power)

Another question: where do you find yourself with bitcoins, an enthusiast, a trader, an exchanger, or a service/ good provider?

Thank you for your insight, Im just trying to find were I belong in this niche! 
I'm an enthusiast due to not having enough disposable income to justify or supporting being anything else

BitInstant has been the easiest transaction for me. Just tried Coinbase for the first time a couple days ago, still making up my mind.

I've heard bad things about Bitinstant lately, I suggest you stay away for now. People claim they are selective scamming.

It seems that one, maybe two, newbies are having some issues. Why the FUD?

Still around.

I got my first piece of bitcoin through one of those faucets. Started rocking with BitInstant shortly thereafter, then flipped a couple btcs betting on college football at btcsportsbet.com Coins were going for $10.70ish around that time I believe. Price was pretty stable for a while.

After that I flipped my first coin on ebay for $22 and the rest is history.

I've purchased twice on coinbase.  It took a couple days, but it was pretty easy.  Price you purchase at doesn't get adjusted after the transaction happens, so no worries about the slightly slow approval process.

I've acquired them through bitstamp.net with a SEPA transfer. the deposit was free. the EUR to BTC exchange fee was 0.5%. so this is pretty cheap IMO.

Good question!
My bro has been mining for a while now, he's a computer scientist, I'm a digital artist. A few month ago he links me to the block chain site and tells me I should get a wallet so people can donate bitcoins to me via my website - its super easy and if I do, he'll donate 1 bitcoin. Well it was super easy so I did and sent him my "wallet address", within a couple of seconds my computer went "ding" and there is 1 bitcoin in my wallet.
Wow, so fast and easy! Whats more, it said it was worth $11.40. The next day $11.80. Today, worth over $16 and still rising!!! Amazing!
