This forum is a great place to start, looks like your off on the right track, and welcome.
There are a lot of great books out there that will help you go down this rabbit hole, such as "How to Brew" and "The Joy of Homebrewing". There are also a couple podcasts you can listen to for free, The Brewing Network has several shows, and there is Basic Brewing Radio. These resources will help you with learning what equipment you need to move up, to really technical stuff such as the biology of yeast.
What kind of beer are you looking to brew? If your still only able to use liquid malt extract at this time, there are tons of extract recipes here on this site.
