Teach Yourself Mandarin Blog - LOTS OF RESOURCES FOR THE BEGINNER!
I wrote a blog that explains in depth how one can go about teaching oneself Mandarin, with many links to helpful resources and a detailed explanation on how to do it. It explains everything you need to know and will probably elucidate many of the questions you have if you're a complete beginner.
It's a lot of reading so keep that in mind. If anyone more knowledgeable sees something wrong, let me know and I will fix it, thanks.

These resources are VERY helpful. I've already started to use several. Thank you!
A few other resources to mention are Skritter for writing (need to pay), FluentU for authentic content (need to pay), "Slow & Clear Chinese" Youtube channel for listening (free), and WrittenChinese.com for a dictionary (free).
Thanks for the info! I read it and I learned a lot! I am not learning Chinese right now but maybe I will in the future. Here are some lingots!
Thanks! I highly recommend you try out the Mandrian course here on Duolingo!
Yes there is, it's called Chinese here. Same content as other Mandarin courses out there.
your paragraph about strokes has mistakes in it. i pointed out in a similar thread to this that you posted a while ago.
Thank you so much, these will help me to go a step further.
For example, I like the small stories... http://chinesereadingpractice.com/2016/05/01/little-horse-crosses-the-river/
