;heyMark, if you install wordpress on your site, you will make posts regularly.
If you use Wordpress, every time you add a new post, it will automatically show up in the home page. Depending on what theme you use, you can set it to show a short clip where they have to click to see the whole post, or you can set it to show the whole post on the homepage. either way works, and it is something that you should test in your niche.
I would recommend looking at other blogs in your niche and see how they are laid out. Network with some of the people running travel blogs and see what kind of ads and layout work best for them. Most of the time, they welcome a new blogger, as long as you are providing quality content. I would recommend checking out some blogger networking sites to find a few blogs in your niche and see how they look.
some of my favorites are blokube.com, bloginteract.com, blogengage.com, and bloggers.com. each one has a lot of blogs in a variety of niches, and I know they have some travel bloggers there.
