Use a CPL...it will help.

And go to places like California LOL..j/k..but really the skies are bluer on the other side

But i think east coast is a good idea too!

Go Australia !! Sunset also blue Well after sunset actually ...

1st I think of coz they sky needs to be blue Yours always blown out or so so pale because the sky is so so pale .. If sky not blue ... picture got blue sky .. u should be scared ...

Filter can use CPL filter ... settings i dunno ... PP can easily search youtube ... here is one
... so tip of the day ... if ONE FINE day .. u so lucky found blue sky .. just snap a pure blue sky photo .. then u can use that sky forever haha ..

edit: oh and 1 more PP ... if ure using NIKON ... get capture NX ... very hebat ... go capture NX website ... they got teach how to enhance the blue in the sky .. i think it's point adjustment or something

If there's a slight hint of blue-ness in the sky, you've got hope. If it's all white and/or cloudy, you probably need to PP and replace the sky altogether :p It's easier to get nice blue skies if you're out of town (ie. Redang Island!!!).

In any case, CPL helps a great deal. Check it out, you won't regret. And lowest ISO setting.

1. You need the right weather
2. You need to shoot at the right time of day
3. You need to shoot are the right angle with the right exposure
4. A good quality CPL helps a lot.
5. Convert from RAW and saturate to taste (cooler white balance enhances blue sky).
