Loaded Question about my channel. Should I split??

    My channel started off as an offroad motorcycle Motovlog channel. I think things were going really well, but then I moved and didn't have access to the same type of terrain. I abandoned the channel for a while. I ended up renaming it to a more general channel name "ADV Outdoors" and began posting about ATV and Side by Sides during the riding season and then a lot of ice fishing in the winter. I have noticed that the ice fishing ones seem to do a lot better than the riding ones and have gained me the most subscribers. I am worried about losing the new subscribers in the Spring when I start posting riding videos again.

    I am wondering if I should split the channel. Maybe ADV Outdoors and ADV Offroad? The thing is, I don't have too much free time to film/edit consistently for 2 different channels. The other thing is I'm at around 700 subs right now trying to make a hard push for 1000. A split now, will take me back in progress pretty far!

    I feel like the quality of my videos warrants a lot more subscribers than what I have and also want some advice on how to get my videos out there, if anyone is interested in checking it out. Basically ANY tips and pointers are appreciated. Thanks!

    I mean, the content that you're mentioning sounds similar enough to me that it could remain on one channel, in my opinion? Although it's tricky because you could end up with a split of viewers who are there for a specific type of video and ignore the rest, but with the size of your channel I feel like it's probably beneficial to be uploading as much as you can despite the differences in content and just trying to hook in a stable viewer-base; personally I would probably keep everything mushed together right now and change it up in the future if I saw necessary for whatever reason per my own perspective/my viewer's complaints/less-than-ideal analytics
    Side note: I love your channel art!! Looks a lot more put together than mine does, that's fore sure haha

    I wouldn't split, those are similar enough that it fits within the same audience. For example, my channel is about teaching people how to edit videos, but if I throw in a camera review every now and then, it still fits within my target audience.
