Advice:

Embrace critique: you will never grow as an artist if all people do is kiss your ass.

Get good at giving critique: being able to understand and articulate your opinion of other people's work will infuse your own work.

When it comes to gear: Light > Glass > Bodies

Good lighting does more to improve your work than almost anything else.

Good glass is far more important than your camera body: you buy a body, you invest in lenses.

Get closer to your subject.

If you want better pictures, put more interesting things in front of your camera.

Always make a backup of all your files.  Make sure you have off-site backup as well.

Calibrate your monitor.

Know the tool of your trade.  If you have bought a new camera recently, read the manual cover to cover.

You will go through a slump.  Probably several.  Everyone does.  Just work through it. 

There is almost 200 years of photographic history at this point, start studying it.

Find your voice.
