Hi Meenal.  Welcome to the area and to this list/group.

You might consider pointing potential employers to a page where they
can find a resume or cv, and links to other information that would
help them quickly determine if your skills would be a good fit for
their needs.  While your blog has some interesting code samples, I
didn't see any links to other information describing your education
and experiences.  I did find your LinkedIn profile via Google search
but that profile doesn't go very deep.

In what part of the Bay Area are you located?  If you are in/near San
Francisco you might like joining the local Python and Django (and
other) Meetup groups.  Of course there are many other local SIGs, too.

Best of luck with your job search and, again, welcome!
