spinning is fun
Another thing I can add to the spin learning process is to "zip yourself up"
What I mean by this is to use your core to keep you up and centered in your spin. My dad always told me to look up, so pick a reference that you can look at as you spin. my rink has neon that runs around the top of the walls, that's what I look at.

Also, in general keep your knees bent a bit especially in the corners. Crossovers with a straight leg is just funny to watch and not very effective.

Watch what people do at your rink, if you see something you like try to do it. Just skating will help you progress in skating.
