So, I have my own blog that I've got my own published documents on.

Turns out, one of the pages I really WASN'T meant to publish has been out of an error of my own.

If I use this work for an essay, will I be collared for plagiarism despite all of the work being my own original property?

How much of the work that is being handed in on Turn-it-in is the blog post?

You can cite your own work. use a site like www.mybib.com to figure out how to reference your own blog but its not different from referencing another person's blog. You should not simply cut and paste the blog but you can refer to it and give a quote from it. I know it sounds crazy but once work is in the public domain, it needs to be cited and referenced properly.
