I had a similar problem. In my opinion Blogs and tutorials are great for the very beginning and probably for specific advanced/obscure topics. I picked up interesting bits and pieces about theory and their application on Youtube from 12Tone, Ben Levin, Adam Neely, Nahre Sol, Sideways, David Bruce and 8-Bit Music Theory which are all great educational and thoughtful channels.
But what I was missing was a coherent path from beginner to more advanced levels without having to cobble it together myself which wouldn't work well because I don't know what I don't know.
I endend up buying bundles of the 12-part (and growing I think) "Music Theory Comprehensive" course on Udemy and it has been amazing value for the money so far.
I think one should start music theory with some free basic introductions that are everywhere to see whether you actually enjoy learning about it. After that I reckon the best way forward is to put some money down for either books or courses.
