Keeping up activity

So, my question for you lovely and very helpful people is this: how do I keep activity high?

I run a community for a crossover pairing, which I knew wasn't going to have the same amount of activity as a normal pairing community, and for awhile there updates were slow but decently steady. Now though it seems as if I am the only one posting. I have started issusing community writing/art prompts and for awhile that worked, but lately it hasn't been helping.

What else can I do to get my 48 members to contribute more actively?

I have considered maybe taming up with another crossover community which mine is affiliated with to do so kind of competition thing but I have no idea what I would propose. Any suggestions?

Advertising. While finding a community like your own to team with might work, odds are that might work against as some don't wanna share their members.

You need to advertise. Check above link.

how do you advertise? Brief description with a pic? What?

Where to? That link above has a list of the largest advertising comms on LJ.

Ah, that. The other account name threw me.

You've got a fair sized membership and it looks fairly active.
