How you hold your camera can be a big factor in reducing blur:

Bend your elbows in against your chest, use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen, and press the shutter button slowly. Keep your fingers from squeezing the camera too strongly - hold it gently. And press it against your face some for further stabilization. Those are my tricks to go quite a bit slower than the "1/focal length" rule of thumb - I just ignore the shaky-hand icon...
