OK, so here's how I leveled, and why I did so.
In the Blood tree, there are a LOT of talents that you can use to help heal yourself. Vendetta, Blood Worms, Blood Aura, coupled with Blood presence... You heal yourself the entire fight, you get healed after the fight, and you have that "Oh Snap" button in Rune Tap, for that extra 20% back just when you need it. Mark of blood is awesome, also as a lifesaver. It proves to be particularly useful when fighting elites solo, (which I was more than capable of doing nearly the entire time I leveled.) I opted out of Bladed Armor, primarily because until you have a decent amount of armor, it's not that useful.
I dumped points into Blood until I hit Heart Strike (which now at 80 accounts for about 30% of my total damage) After I got to HS, I moved into the Unholy, all 19 points I have there, then moved back to Blood.
This may not have been the IDEAL way to go, according to some, but it certainly worked well for me. I hardly ever had to stop. For attacking 2-4 targets at a time, I rarely dropped below 70% health, and just about the time I did, Rune Tap CD was complete. I managed to get to 80 in about 3.5 days, which included leveling my Mining to 400+, and getting my Engineering up to 250ish.
Hope this helps!

I'm one of those where Blood didn't suit my playstyle. Frost was okay, but Unholy won me over. You'll need to get yourself to level 60 (do the Eastern Plaguelands and Western Plaguelands quests ,you'll get from 58 to 60 in about an hour)
Once you're at 60, you'll have both Death and Decay and Unholy Blight (51 point Unholy talent)
I ride my horse around, collect about 6 or 7 mobs that are a bit below my level, then Death & Decay, then you do your diseases... Icy Touch, Scourge Strike, then Pestilence (which spreads it to everyone in the area). Death Strike to heal myself back up. If the fight's about over, I'll just strike the rest dead. Go into the next fight with some RP saved up so I can Unholy Blight early on to have 3 AoE's running (D&D, UB, Diseases)http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=jZZfMhIzfkMcq0ssuu
That's for right at 60, fill in the rest of your rage of rivendare afterwards, then go to Blood.
