If you were asked to create the Butler blog in the context of your job duties, then it's probably a work-for-hire. Even so, it is still possible to negotiate shared rights. If, however, you requested a BU blog on your own, then the intellectual content is most likely your own. To avoid these concerns some faculty will create a professional blog on a hosted service like Wordpress.com or Blogger.com.
Lastly, you may want to discuss this with the Institute of Research & Scholarship. They specialize in intellectual property and can provide advice that goes beyond this answer.
