What is the best way for a new rookie ship flier to get ahold of some blueprints (to use up resources mined)?

Buy them off the market from NPC dealers?

If you are in just for the fun go ahead, if you are looking to make ISK, I would recommend to check the market price of your mined ore vs. the market price of the to be manufactured thing including your expenses for fees. On the low price end often selling just the ore makes you more ISK.

You can add value to your ore by compressing it at a nearby Citadel - most offer the service. You will usually do better listing your product on the market with a sell order rather than accepting a buy order.

With low skill, your reprocessing yield won't be very good so you may be better off selling your compressed ore and buying minerals to build stuff.

Original blueprints are seeded at NPC stations throughout New Eden. Each faction sells different stuff - armor is sold by Amarr, shield is sold by Caldari, etc... You may need to travel a bit to find the one you want at NPC pricing. They will all generally be available from other players at major trade hubs - but you'll pay a premium for the convenience. Most player corporations have blueprint libraries and will provide copies to members at low or no cost.

There are products that new players can build and sell profitably. I've been using the Small Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer 1 as an example for over a year now and it is still a solid performer:
