Much like you I brought myself a camera and wasn't sure where to begin about a month ago.
I found a very good starting point is to either read the manual (no joking here) or if someone has published one, buy a guide book based on your camera model.
I did the latter, and very glad I did as it actually covered general photography learning (ISO, shutter speed, Aperture, JPEG Vs raw, rules of 3rds, etc) and at the same time it covered every feature to do with my camera. The buttons, the menu options, etc it was all covered in more detail than the actual manual it self.
But don't just sit back with the theory from the book, I'm sure every photographer here will tell you that the best way to learn is to shot pictures. Stop and think about what you are shooting, take the shot then review your shot with a critical eye. What would you had preferred if you took it again and then learn how to achieve that.
