First of all, WELCOME
The more one reads about "how to" the more one realizes that there is usually more than one way to accomplish something.
Try different methods. I would suggest starting with something small to try out a technique - I have had several projects that about half-way through I figured out a much better way of doing whatever, but it seemed better to stay with the way I was going until the end.
There will be some things that are duds. Remember all the practice on things like arithmetic (is it math now) and writing we did in school?
It's okay to not be thrilled with one's first attempts. Proud, yes, that one tried. But usually one does improve with practice and experience.
At any rate, I've found the hobby to be very satisfying.
Hope you do, too.
