```Your model needs some explicit multipliers or spaces.

{am, bm, cm} = {
1 + RandomReal[],
2 + RandomReal[],
8 + RandomReal[]}

{1.48798,2.46428,8.91346}

data = Table[{k, Log[am*k^2 + bm*k + cm + RandomReal[]]}, {k, 35}];

nlm = NonlinearModelFit[data, Log[a*k^2 + b*k + c], {a, b, c}, k];

nlm // Normal

Log[1.4834808148709797*k^2 +
2.5953464393454073*k +
8.874882556234564]
