You should try to avoid changing the theme code. In this case I see no need and you will have to go back and change it each time there is an upgrade.

You should look at the source of one of your blog pages (the front end) and there you will see the ID or class assigned to the widget which you can use for styling

So when you saw 'look at the source' it meant look at the source of the page being displayed NOT look at the themes source code (the php files)
