Having trouble finding cool folks to follow that share your interests? I've suggested keyword searching before; I've used shello.co for that, but it requires a person to have something in their user info. A better way is outlined here by @booksnips that uses our friend Google to locate keywords in posts: https://ello.co/booksnips/post/3HYMCNee2ocRaXETuQDuuw
So my suggestion is, make sure that when you're posting, if you want to be found for something in particular, put keywords in your user data and/or your posts. Pictures are great, but they don't communicate that data. Make sure and put a short blurb beneath, something that says "photography" or "painting" or "knitting" or whatever. Use what we have now; @cacheflowe says that search functions are coming to ello.
Get after it, ellozens, explore the elloverse!
