Pretty good. You may be using a bit too much solder, though.
There are two important considerations when soldering:

1) Use plenty of flux.

2) Always make sure you heat each of the things you want to join
   as directly as possible. Only then will the solder flow freely
   and make good contacts.

If you pre-tinned the PCB, then there will also be a tiny amount
of solder on the pads, making it even easier to solder the pins.
