About Candice & Rodney’s Editorial Guidelines

Welcome to Candice and Rodney’s blog, where we provide reviews, tips and gift lists for outdoor activities such as camping, paddle boarding and roller skating to help our fellow outdoorsmen (and women) make informed purchase decisions and get the most out of their outdoor experiences.

Editorial Standards & Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide real, helpful information to our readers. We uphold the highest editorial standards to ensure the quality and integrity of our content.

Why We Do Reviews

Our passion for the great outdoors drives us to share our knowledge with others. Through our own first-hand experience and research, we can help you make informed decisions and save you from having to do hours of research.

Candice & Rodney’s Methodology

By sharing our personal experiences and conducting thorough research, we aim to provide honest and unbiased reviews and suggestions that our readers can trust.

How We Conduct Research For Our Articles

While testing every product we suggest and review would be ideal, sometimes, this isn’t feasible.

We conduct thorough research in such cases, assessing reliable sources such as customer reviews and testimonials, outdoor forums, Facebook groups and product review sites.

This comprehensive research (along with our own insights) allows us to create unbiased and well-formulated product reviews and suggestions.

Our Values

We believe that transparency and integrity are essential and strive to withhold these values in everything we do.

How We Choose Products

By conducting in-depth research, we factor in such things as relevancy, market interest and industry trends to determine which products to recommend and review.

We prioritize outdoor activities that we personally have experience with, enjoy regularly, and feel we can provide valuable insight to our readers.

Unbiased Reviews

To maintain a neutral stance on a product, we base our reviews on the following: cost, performance, ease of use, benefits, customer service and durability.

We aim to offer a balanced assessment, looking at both the pros and cons of a product so that you can make an informed buying decision.

Regular Updates

As the outdoor space is constantly evolving, we strive to stay on top of industry trends and keep our recommendations current and up to date.

To do this, we regularly revisit previously reviewed products and make updates as needed.

How We Keep Our Information Free For You

At candice&rodney we are committed to providing helpful information at no cost to you. Because we understand that not everyone can afford to pay for premium content, we share our reviews and insights for free.

To support our work, we may earn a commission when readers make a purchase through one of our affiliate links. However, this does not influence our editorial standards. We only recommend products that we would use (or have used) ourselves.

By purchasing through our affiliate links, you can help us continue to provide useful information to our readers.

How We Use AI-Generated Content

In this blog, we use AI-generated content to overcome writer’s block and craft better content for you. We use these tools for generating ideas, optimizing for readability and fine-tuning the quality of our articles.

However, we will never publish AI content without proofreading, fact-checking and editing the information first. We understand that AI has limitations and requires a “human touch” to ensure relevancy and accuracy.

How We View AI Tools

While we do utilize AI tools on this blog, we are committed to providing valuable and high-quality content to our readers. This means all of the opinions and recommendations we make are solely based on our own experiences and expertise.

In Summary

At candiceandrodney.com, we understand the importance of providing accurate and useful information to our readers. By following these editorial guidelines, we strive to be your trusted source in all of your outdoor endeavours!
