    How do I add a jQuery plugin so that it is being used on every blog post widget that is used on the site, other than going to each page and drop in javascript widget? I know I could include the plugin on every page using .master file but that seems to be an overkill.

     Thanks

    2 Options

    1) ResourceLinks Control
    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/how-to-include-js-and-css-resources-in-custom-sitefinity-widgets
    Pros: if you have multiple blog widgets on a page (could happen) the script loads once
    Cons: You can't control the script position or load order

    2) JavaScriptEmbedControl (in Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.PublicControls)
    Pros: Easy to use, can define if it renders in Head, InPlace, BeforeBodyEndTag
    Cons: Doesn't check to see if script is already loaded

    In EITHER case you want to add the markup to your widget templates in the backend
