Whatever happened to The Marshfield Tattler, a 2006-2009 Chicago blog written by a self-described "white chick who bought a house in Back of the Yards" and was trying to be "more constructive than just another gentrifier"?
According to this Epilogue, posted roughly three years after the site basically stopped updating, some of the main characters from the block are locked up, others have graduated, or are entering high school, or moved away. A nice family moved in next door. There's a gay couple and a Chinese family.
Did you ever read the site, and like it? So many sites have come and gone over the years, it's nice to hear back from this one.
