I suggest reading posts by the moderator Lark under Wiccan in forums as I used it as a springboard start and she is very informative, and gives resources to continue and deepen your knowledge beyond what she has taken the time to explain.

Also about.com is a good site for all kinds of info. Once there, put Wicca basics in the search bar. It will take you to basics of magick, too. I was on it for hours just looking and reading. And copy and pasted a lot of things to my computer.
I jumped from coven to coven for a while learning what i could and also finding a coven that was right for me. Blessed be ps it is ok to be a trailblazer as far as your path is concerned just go with what feels right
