How do I get more attention/participation on my advice blog?

I started an advice blog just for fun when some people had been asking me consistently for advice over a few weeks. I answered questions about relationships, roommate situations, mostly light things. People ask questions anonymously through tumblr. I've been talking about the blog only through my Facebook.
People have told me that they really like it, and I'd like to keep it up. But no one's asking questions.
I've answered five to six questions, and want to keep doing it, but nothing else has been coming in. What are some ways to recharge interest? Some thoughts I had were to write articles about relevant topics, what else?
I know some people feel shy about posting questions to someone they know, and since it's mostly Facebook a lot of them do kind of know me, so it's understandable that if I want to get more questions I need to get the blog out there where strangers can ask things. But I feel like I need to get more "there" there in the blog before I do that.
