For me setting up a YoutTube channel and Blog was annoying.
The first mistake I ran into was setting my channel under my everyday Gmail account. I had no idea about Youtube channel branding. I was getting phone calls from friends and coworkers asking “Did your Gmail get hacked?” or “Why are you sending me Youtube links about baby seals?”
After a few minutes on Google. I found out that I had changed my Email name to what my channel name was to be. That is when I found branded channels.
lucky enough this Google help section solved my issue. https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/7001996
