Outside of that people, including myself, like great photography even if its of not much in particular. I've seen a couple popular logs where there isn't much action in terms of the actual build but lots of great photo's of stuff. I think it's also important to be active on the site other than just in your own build log, if you help other people they will find their way to your build log and show an interest.
Now that you mention it, I keep forgetting to comment on your log >.>;;; In addition to his comment on great photographs, a high end camera is NOT required to do such, just a bit of patience, proper lighting, and a bit of luck. ^_^ (There's a thread on here, somewhere, about how to take higher quality pictures more readily/easily)

With that said u bring up a great point, I have seen some build logs that are almost a years worth of work, but that makes it hard for me because then the components are out dated and not as impressive by the time it's done. That's my worry for my next build.
Finally, one thing that is frustrating is when there are so many builds here that one .01% of the 1st world populations could justify spending that kind of money on trump all other builds, for instance there is a 750D build with quay 780Ti's being built all watercooled... You literally cannot best that build in performance specs.
With all that said yes I love the mods I've done and I find I update my build logs with updates but nobody is caring like my last build (Reanimation) and it's my best work to date, aesthetics performance parts and professionalism...
I will have to try to either take my time and start slow for "the journey" as you say
Apologies for the delayed response, it's been snowing like crazy outside (and I got addicted to Borderlands 2, lol). Always fun to see how far I can push my work truck before traction control kicks in though ^_^
Price and being completely up to date, at least for me, have remarkable less impact to me than someone showcasing passion... If that makes any sense. I'd rather see a build that takes a while (be it due to finances, lack of free time, girlfriend, etc) than a weekend miracle. Now sure, there are some incredibly impressive weekend builds out there, but those are fueled on so many energy drinks you yourself seem to get a trickle effect just from reading it!
Practicality and/or aesthetic mods seem to get my attention the most, and yeah, those mega-thousand dollar builds (y'know, the ones that would retail for $7-10k easily) can be frustrating to myself as well (probably why I don't normally look at them). Well documented/photographed mods are things I always like to look at, even if I'm still somewhat terrible at leaving comments >.>;;;
