Mailing List Archives (dspace-tech)
DSpace-Tech mailing list is the usual hangout for questions on DSpace. Typically it will have people troubleshooting their installation, working on a new feature, having questions on how to change their metadata. There is also dspace-general which is generally for repository admins to get announcements without getting too much traffic that you would be prompted to unsubscribe. DSpace-devel is geared towards developers, as someone will often pose questions about refactoring the code. However, dspace-tech is probably your best bet.
I've added DSpace Developers that I'm aware of who have blogs. Most people are probably posting their status updates to social networks, Twitter or Google+ these days. But written up articles still appear in their blogs.

Above and beyond the resources available to you so you can help yourself. There are also companies that exist who live and breath DSpace, and are available to provide premium enhancements to your repository, provide DSpace hosting, customization and branding, training, and custom development for a new feature that you are dreaming up.
DSpace calls them Registered Service Providers.
Some of the vendors I've met (and have positive reviews of) are:
