If you find you want to do Sport/action or Nature photography where you need to get in close you could do with a Good telephoto zoom. If you go for a good quality zoom like the 80 -200 ED that should give you a great range of options. If you can't afford that you could go for something like the 70 - 300 G lens, but that is a bit cheap and cheerful and you would probably find it a retrograde step after what you already have. In my opinion the lens you have is pretty excellent for a first time DSLRer.

When I started, I only had one standard zoom lens. It took me 5 years before I actually bought a second lens. You need to increase you proficiency on the use of you camera and other accessories before even considering other stuff to add on. That's where joining outings, gatherings, courses, etc will help. You make new friends who might own those accessories that might allow you try them out before buying anything.
You will be surprise how many photographers out there owns more equipment than they could use. Don't fall into the trap of owning equipment, concentrate of taking good pictures first.

Get a dry cabinet first to keep your stuff.
After that get a good tripod. it can follow you for years, mine is already more than 10 years old.
