I’m running on a personal lemmy instance, and I’ve been able to simply re-subscribe to the communities that I was subscribed to on my previous lemmy.ml account.

But what if I didn’t have that? How would I discover those communities?

On the micro blogging fediverse, I can use relays, follow other peoples boosts, or join gup.pe groups etc for content discovery and to give me federated content in general on which to do content discovery.

What does that look like in the lemmyverse niche of the fediverse? How does a small single person instance find new content? How do they get richer content search options etc? Right now, I’m just using search on lemmy.ml for that, but that’s a work around, not a solution

    Just the overview, similar to local search. Titles, usernames, perhaps thumbnails and text excerpts of posts.

      Honestly, my ideal solution would just be some sort of implementation that makes my lemmy instance aware of the groups on other lemmy instances that I federate with, so those groups turn up in searches. It will grow organically that way even without active seeding
