People ask my how I learned photography and basically it was from other people on the internet and hands on workshops, not that this is the only way, I wish I had taken college courses and studied it formally, but 62 thats not going to happen. We all have our on path to follow.
The internet has been a big help. If you know where to go and how to ask the question, you will get the answer in minutes or more information than you know what to do with, or learn a different way to approach the problem.
My internet photography friends have been there to encourage and support me in moments of lack of confidence.
Hands on workshop shops for me are good because there are certain questions that don’t seem to be answer anywhere. Like how do I take my tripod apart to clean it. These workshop turned into friendship and support for me for my instructors. So How to get a question answered on the web.

It’s consider rude to post a question thats already been answered. so how do you know your question has been answered ?
First you search the forum, using words that describe your problem so remember FIRST BEFORE ASKING THE QUESTION, SEARCH the forum not the internet. Those forum have internal search engines that search all the Q & A discussions.
If can’t find the answer that way you can post the question. It better to give a short intro if new to the forum.
Well I hope this helps some one get there questions answered.
