First, welcome to Flyertalk !

Second establish goals, upon earning miles &/or points, what do you hope to do with them?
(fly First class to London, stay in an over the water bungalow in the Maldives, plan for a honeymoon, fly your friends or family someplace for a reunion? etc etc).

Third, figure out what program(s) will get you to your goal(s) by reading, reading. Most Airline & Hotel forums have threads that are stickies (meaning they stay near the top of the page), these are chock full of information about the programs, many forums also offer places to ask questions where folks that have been around for awhile can provide guidance.

Fourth, did I say read already???? Put some effort into finding out about the various programs because after all it is up to you to figure out if the game is worth it.

Good luck !
