I understand the advice to make what you like, and obviously you don't want to make content you don't like. However I do think it reduces anxiety immensely when you figure out what your new audience likes. You don't have to totally change your other stuff but you could still mix it in sort of. I will say this is the big downside of doing variety on a channel. Yeah I've been there though, I had a random game video series get popular like 8 months after I had made the videos and I hadn't played the game since nor did I want to play it again. I just kept doing what I was currently doing because it was working okay too but other people would follow what is hot and it's just a matter of what you want your channel to be about.
