One of the best places to start is the guides directory. Everything there is better and more thought out than the advice I can give you.
I find your gear choices quite interesting. Where on earth did you get the idea to stack block rating up to 35%? Allright, I suppose I would want to do that if my blockvalue was like 5000 (instead of hovering around 1000). Or did you just log out in an aoe grinding set or something?
Personally I would much rather have a bit more pure avoidance and more health on my gearset. Especially with the amounts of magic damage I take in various encounters.

You've got some pretty nice pieces considering you said you just recently picked up tanking, and i'll have to agree with you that you have alot of Shield Block. You could definitely attempt to get some more parry in there, but i'd have to say your dodge is fine. Maybe throw on Pantheon (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=36993) over your dodge trinket to see how that changes things up a bit? With your gear i'm sure you could attempt to get the Repelling Charge (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39292) from Thaddius. I dunno. I just don't bother using that trinket. Even your belt, you could probably switch things up a bit and try out the badge belt (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40689), put a 16 Defense rating gem in there and then put an extra socket there as well for a 24 Stam gem. With some of those changes, if you're willing to try it out, you'd have some more defense with your items so you can probably get rid of that Defense chant on your chest and get 275 health slapped on there. Your boots too could be changed out, to attempt to get some more health in there. Since you could try Thaddius for that Defense trinket, you could maybe be lucky enough to pick up these (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40297) as well. Otherwise, try the crafted boots. Swap out that 18 Stam LW chant for a Greater Fortitude (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44528) chant on the boots, too.
Hopefully that helped, i'm not much for giving advice though, hah. Sorry if it's all jumbled around. :P
