The key to learning something new to is to be extremely analytical and critical of what you are doing, digital is a great learning tool because you can analyze what you are doing and how to fix it right away, use it. Also posting work up for critique is detrimental, dont just put random pictures up, have a concept and then try to achieve that then people will tell you what you did wrong and how to do it better next time. Not putting your work up for critique will slow you down immensely
to the point you will probably never be very good.

you have to know what you want to accomplish and how to accomplish it, just taking a bunch of pictures is no different than the person who posts 100 photos a month of their friends on facebook
