Instal twrp and do a backup before you really play with anything...
And then do a fresh backup before any major change until you get a bunch then you can just backup whenever you get it to a point that you want to be able to go back to. You can't backup too much really. I archive backups to the computer to save should I need to revert.
Now that you're rooted you can install the android market, use programs like quick boot and root explorer, get your wallpaper to stay when you change it and of course run custom roms like cm or ics when you get brave enough.
I left ours pretty mild because it's my wife's. All I wanted was ofr her to have a good launcher and android market so she could use it as a tablet and a reader. being able to make a live wallpaper stick was a nice bonus but she didn't really care about that. If it was mine it would already be running the alpha ics build but that's just me. She could care less about that.
Wife walks in...
Wife: Hey what are you doing?
me: Nada, phones finally rootable.
