First off, if there's a recent thread on my topic you're welcome to point me there...
I am looking for a Social Network Software/Script solution for my growing website. Right now it's just a blog but we're expanding to have like I said a social network attached to it.
I'm in the infancy stages of finding a self-hosted solution so I'm open to recommendations.
I've looked over:
I'll need something that can handle 20,000 page views a day to start and it'll rise from there.
I realize alot of the traffic handling is on the server-side but I've heard some solutions don't handle alot of simultaneous users well.
I've heared vbulletin will be expanding in to more a full social solution but that's just hearsay. I LOVE their message board functionality.
Hit me back if you need more info.
Any help based on experience will be very much appreciated.

Check out buddypress (especially if the blog is wordpress).

Yes I have a Wordpress blog and I admit that I haven't really looked at Buddypress but isn't BP just strictly a message board?

No, I think it's a full package with bbpress (2.0) forum. If you already have wp and registered users you should check it out.
