One Year Blogging

It's been one year this month since we started our blog. Naomi informed me that when you post your one year entry, "lurkers" should identify themselves. That would be really nice! We've wondered who it is that reads this blog from Ontario, Utah, South Carolina, England, and lots of other places our stat counter tells us we have readers from. You can see the photo of our stat counter. It doesn't always seem to record hits when we know they should or the places people are really from. Even so, its fun to look at. We average about 25-35 people a day. 41 people have been on the blog over an hour in a day! People from 27 countries that we know of have checked the blog out. The P. family from Illinois has been on here the most times, and there's been 343 entries on the blog since we started. Wow! We never planned on posting that much but it seems like there's always something going on. As for most popular blog entries, well, I think we've had more people comment on Isaac's building a fire video more than most, even though it wasn't written comments but verbal. Someday I'd like to do that video clip over again but with a little longer video.

So thank you, blog readers, for making this so fun! It has made our family see things through different eyes and hopefully given you all a taste of life up here in the north on a dairy farm. Thank you for all you nice comments and encouragement. We feel like we've made some real friends out of some of you that we've never even met, and maybe never will till we leave our earthly homes. We've also enjoyed having a way to keep our relatives and friends up to date on what's going on in our lives.

So with that thanks, have a great weekend, spend it in church, spend it in prayer, and spend it in a way that your time will count for eternity. You can pray for Naomi too, she's got a really bad case of the flu with a high fever. Bye!

Ecclesiastes 12:13 "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."


  1. Hey!! Glad you have stayed on here. Where did you get the tracker thing? I would love to have one!!

  2. Hello, I haven't meant to be "lurking" this long. :)
    I found your blog through a few lovely comments that you left on mine a little while ago. I love to read the blogs of people who live on farms. It's my dream to someday live on a small farm.
    I have really enjoyed all the posts so far and can't wait to see more. Thanks!

  3. Hello, Khran family!

    This is Naomi from Alaska. Congratulations on your blog's "birthday"! (chuckle) The testimony of your family--seeing how God has blessed you as you've served Him together--has been a true blessing to me. Life on your farm is so interesting to me. You all do keep busy and have fun in the process! =)

    God bless!

    Naomi U.

    The Lord bless you all.

  6. Hey, I have left a comment or two occasionally, but I suppose I'll de-lurk for your one year. This month is one year of blogging for me also.

  7. I read your blog often. Hello!! See me wave!!! Congratulations on making it a year.


We'd love to hear what you have to say!
