Flicks and Food now has over 500,000 followers across all social media including this blog, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Trove and LinkedIn and shows no sign of slowing.

When Flicks and Food blogs about you or your product you don’t just get followed you get stalked.
Flicks and Food is mostly about food & drink, culinary travel, movies and products related to these areas. I offer reviews on restaurants/eating & drinking establishments, hotels, wine & beer, liquor, books including cookbooks, movies (both TV and theater), culinary travel, and products that relate to all the above. Occasionally there may be a review about an item that doesn’t relate to any of the above but that we really like and is near and dear to our heart.

Johnnie started writing this blog in 2008. For the first 3 years it was mostly Johnnie’s hobby, something to do in her free time. Now it is a full time effort. This is due in part to the overwhelming response from my 500,000 followers, the many restaurants in the San Antonio and surrounding area that liked my reviews and to branded companies who have discovered Flicks and Food and realized the value of this blog.
Due to the overwhelming success of this valued blog over the last few years, Flicks and Food has been going through many growing pains and changes. The first change was the upgrade of the website hosting the blog. The new site is cleaner, easier to navigate and it offers much more exposure for reviews, sponsored posts and advertisement.
