I have a current store (314 customers, 23748 orders, 5738 products, and 1385 blog posts) under version 2.2.0 and wish to upgrade to version 3.0.3. Can I upgrade my store directly or do I have to create a new store under 3.0.3 and upgrade later? I would like to learn suggestions on upgrade solutions as well.

First: there is no 3.0.3 version, guess you mean 3.0.3.8
Second: OpenCart does not have a native blog module, which means you have to update that always manually.
Third: updating a store "directly" is always in any case a very bad idea.

Better create a new instance with 3.0.3.8 and build that up from ground.
Check that all your used extensions are exist also for 3.0.3.8 - a good way to remove unneeded and not used extensions.
Check that the used template (if not the default) does exist also for 3.0.3.8 - or buy a new one.
Finally convert the database tables manual.

If all is okay, you can switch from the older store to the new - you customers and visitors will not have any outage (except at least a few seconds).

Ah yes, I'm still getting familiar with the new version. It must be 3.0.3.8. I'm sorry if there's any confusion here.
I will create a new store first and see which extensions I can use there. Thanks for your advice!

A lot of my acquaintances ask for my opinions on this upgrade task so I hope my sharing will be helpful. I understand the need to upgrade to the newest version for a more smooth-running store, and I recommend you try specialized solutions to save time but still ensure your sales operations, even with such high attribute numbers. You can talk with lit extension as they are a notable team in this data migration field, and can support you quickly and accurately. I used to work with them on my last projects and I trust them a lot. You can view to briefly see what they can do with OpenCart upgrade.
