    Get a book. Or two. Or better yet, ten.

    You've likely been given bad advice along the way. Books can help filter out good and bad advice (so can forums such as this): read the same thing in 10 books, it's probably solid advice; read differing recommendations every other book, it's probably not so trustworthy. Books have a better tendency of maintaining continuity than various threads. And they make better references.

    If you want to round out your language knowledge, answer questions in a language forum. You'll be surprised at how much you don't know. If you want to branch out into an area of interest, seek such forums and tutorials and FAQs. If you want to get better in C, get K&R2 and answer all of the questions -- by the end you'll be quite well versed. [One of these days I really gotta try that myself.]
