It is always recommended to stay up to date with the latest version of any software to avoid running into unnecessary bugs by receiving the latest updates from us. There things to remember everytime you run an upgrade: Backup, backup and backup.
Make it a habit to run a backup before uninstalling ANY component; this includes EasyBlog. There are many school of thoughts or ways to backup your site, but please stick with what you're comfortable with. We would like to recommend you to read through this documentation on Backing Up Your Site.
