Just make sure you let off the throttle when you shift, and look for the "sweet spot" in your rpms. Basically if you shift at the right spot in your rpm range, the shift will be silky smooth.

OK, so by "Right" you mean not gassing it in the middle of the shift? So give it gas to the point of the shift, then let off, shift, then get back on it?
Yep, you've got it. Sometimes when downshifting without the clutch you'll need to blip the throttle just before the shift and then let off as you downshift.
