    Hello, I was starting building a blog, if I make it in my national language, would google rank it faster/better if I use the domain of my country instead of .com or .net etc ?

    I would suggest you go for a .com domain

    as per my experience, its easy for people to remember a .com domain than a regional one

    Regarding ranking, it depends upon your SEO efforts ;-)

    I'd set up both and vary content slightly. Then test to see which one works better. You could tailor your content for the regional domain with more specific locations, cities, etc.
