I leveled blood myself and If this is for leveling...
For starters drop vendetta, when leveling blood if you are low on life you regain it by picking a fight. I recommend something more like:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#jfVMqI0IsfMfost
I loved talents like rune tap/imp rune tap, vampiric blood, and mark of blood for leveling because they are what allow you to solo just about any quest till 80 (including group quests with ease)

I hate those talents honestly, I never need excess health and I can already solo group quests with ease. Also do you think I should move over into obliterate now or once I cap out blood?
Since patch 3.1 The damage done by Death strike has been increased (from 60 to 75%), it's glyph increases it's damage by an additional 25% (assuming 25rp) and thanks to the talent Improved Death Strike (an additional 30%) Death strike's damage becomes onpar/more than obliterate.
Not to mention Obliterate being removed from Might of Mograine
, making DS scale better for deep blood specs.
As a blood DK you ought to always use DS as your primary DR converter/UF rune dump.
If you dislike the extra healing then something like this
might appeal to you?
(only two "self healing" talents being RT and Vamp blood, which is good for those "Oh snap!" moments, and they're mainly being fillers :))
