I usually wait till I am level 20 or more before getting the "horn". It just seems to make everything easier.

You aren't doing anything wrong. Skyrim doesn't really have a set goal; you don't actually need to complete the main quest with Alduin to play the game.

My first character spent her first 10 levels Bounty Hunting and side-questing.
My second character spent her first 30 levels doing NO QUESTS at all, just simple exploring and living. This character actually ended up being my longest lived character, btw.
My third character is doing main quest first. It's alright.

Think of Skyrim as a alternate life only one in a computer generated world, it's your life do what you want, in fact there are days I wish I lived in Tamriel if it was real rather then in this world in this day and age, but that's just me

To build on that, next time you make a new character, try to role-play that character a bit.

For example, if you think your character looks like a mercenary (or if you create a character thinking it is a mercenary), then pick up bounties whenever you're in a town. You will level that much more, will get that much more items, and you wont go through quests so quickly.

Like I said, my character who spent the first 30 levels doing no quests (and actually avoiding all cities and towns), she was by far the funnest character I had, and I will do it again sometime in the future.

If i am not exploring how do i get wepons strong enough to defeat alduin. Or is victory all in the shout?

Alduin scale by your level and you always get help in the main quest. First time it's Parthuunax, second time is a gang of heroes. The only possible hard part is right after Odahving when you chase after Alduin.

Oh I explored the crap out of the game. My no-quest characer fully explored southern Skyrim (especially the river channels) before starting to do small side-quests in villages. Since stuff like bandits level their gear with your level, finding weapons wasnt that difficult, and using forges to level your smithing can make it so that you have good gear no matter. Come on now, I'm currently using an iron scimitar that has the same damage as a steel longsword, and my smithing level isnt even level 20 yet!

Really, just roam around like End_of_Infinity does. It's a lot of fun and you'll uncover pretty cool stuff!
I've been hunting animals, harvesting and doing alchemy stuff for some time and I didn't even wanted to bother with dragons, Stormcloaks, Imperials and all that shizzle.
And take your time reading those books. They're quite interesting, actually.

If i were to join the empire/rebels will i be in a war with the opposing side. If so will I actually go to battles to fight?

IMO, the main quest story is a big bowl of yawn. I'd treat the game like a saga that happened to someone over a few years or a decade and do the side quests that appeal to you. Don't get me wrong, the main quest takes to you to more of the bigger, more interesting places.
Yeah you are doing something wrong. like other nerfs on the forums: Dropping Spoilers. All this is about is to brag about something everyone else is going to get round to doing anyway...Try playing the game! And using Spoiler tags!....

Some f**ing people.....

My latest character was level 80 before I even bothered to do the main quest and civil war... and I only did those so I could get Nahkriin to get Konahrik.

TES, while it has amazing lore and an awesome world, has never had a very strong plot when it comes to the games themselves. I couldn't care less about Alduin and it's hard to finish the Civil War line because every quest is nearly the same flalvor of defeat enemies until you capture a fort.

your game has probably been possessed by Sanic

Don't worry about what other people do. Play this game however you'd like.
