OP, you should share your mixes. Shorter might make them more manageable, but share them if they're long as well. People in the fan mix community appreciate diversity! I can remember also being six of seeing the same, sometimes awful songs in fan mixes again and again (Harry/Draco fandom and your completely un-ironic, repeated use 'Bring Me To Life' despite the existence of 'My Immortal', I'm looking at you).

However, it might be good to get some perspective as well, because people also make fan mixes differently. Some try to pick songs that fit the general tone of the show while also touching on emotional notes - Psych fandom has some particularly amazing, super fun mixes like this. Other people - like you it sounds like - don't care if the overall mix is cohesive, and are more focused on the appropriateness of each individual song. And other people, like you allude to, throw together a bunch of popular songs that could vaguely be related to the emotional struggles of characters in the shows (though some of those can be fun too). It's all part of the fun of discovering new music and seeing different takes on your favourite characters.

Some people aren't going to like your mixes, or understand where you're coming from. But that's okay. Just post your mixes!
