you might not want to focus so much on learning these things so that you can write an article about them.
I hope you don't mind me asking, but could you be a bit more explicit?

I mean that before you even start thinking about what should be in any article you might want to write, you should first build up your own understanding. At your current level of understanding, you might not even know enough to know what ought to be in an article that would be useful to others.

Have you taken a look at other articles written for beginners? Are they written by people who are beginners themselves?

A fairly good general rule in teaching is that the introductory, beginner classes are taught by the more experienced teachers, whose knowledge of the subject matter is more thorough. The teachers who are fairly new to the subject themselves teach more advanced students. Similar remarks apply to articles.
