Blueberries are successfully grown all over Ohio, and it is likely that you too can be successful. Details on soil requirements, best sun exposure, pruning recommendations, and fertilizer needs can be found in the following online sources. The Ohioline fact sheet is written by one of the state's best authorities on backyard plantings of all kinds of fruits. Lee Reich is also well-qualified to advise on best practices for this topic.
