The first review posted on Blogger Beware was Troy Steele's review of the book Egg Monsters from Mars on January 19, 2006. Throughout the next two years, Steele would go on to review every book in the original Goosebumps series. During this time, Steele released a line of pin-back buttons, and each button referenced a running gag from Blogger Beware. Steele's final review for the original series was of Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes on June 30, 2008. After this review, Steele went on to start reviewing the Goosebumps Series 2000 books. At one point, Steele stated that he was planning on reviewing Goosebumps HorrorLand and Ghosts of Fear Street, a book series similar to Goosebumps.
Blogger Beware posts started to become more sporadic towards the end of the Goosebumps Series 2000 reviews, and the blog went on a long hiatus after More Tales to Give You Goosebumps was reviewed on May 9, 2011. Over the course of the next year, the only featured updates on the blog were not reviews. On June 5, 2012, Steele posted a review for Revenge of the Living Dummy, marking the first time that a Goosebumps HorrorLand book had been reviewed on Blogger Beware. The blog was updated once in 2015 with a post entitled, "Exciting New Poster For Everyone's Most Anticipated Movie Debuts!"; the title of the post is supposed to seem like it is alluding to the film Goosebumps, but — in actuality — the post is about an obscure film called Jenny's Wedding.
While the blog has never been officially retired, it is dormant; Revenge of the Living Dummy (reviewed in 2012) is currently the last Goosebumps book to be reviewed by Steele, and "Exciting New Poster For Everyone's Most Anticipated Movie Debuts!" (posted in 2015) is the most recent post on the blog. In 2013, Steele said, "The blog is in indefinite hiatus, but hey, Futurama came back."
When asked how he felt about Blogger Beware on Reddit, R. L. Stine had this to say, "They sure are critical aren't they? Cringe cringe."
After being presented with Stine's comment, Steele said, "Cringing at how critical I am of his life's work is hardly a diss. Considering the circumstances, it was about as classy a response as one could hope for".
According to Steele, a fan who worked at Scholastic personally sent him a set of Goosebumps HorrorLand books.
