Mulch, bag, or blow?

What do you do with your lawn clippings? Mulching cut and leave them to feed the soil? Bag them up and dispose/compost? Blow them out the side part of your mower (if it has that option) and leave longer blades of grass on the surface?
Which and why?
I think you should have added that option @Blue Onion
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
(Excess collected grass is spread thinly on an area kept for the purpose, to compost in situ.)
Edited to add. Voted 'mulching cut' as more area is cut that way. But I too would not be without grass clippings for the compost bin, absolutely essential. Also, the collecting mower is less reliant on dry weather, and leaves a nicer finish around the house.
Moss content is about equal, but that's down to situation and climate.

Most goes in the compost but we have a lot of grass and, at the height of a wet summer, there is just too much for effective composting. I do store a bit to mix later with autumn leaves but some surplus goes in the council bin
Do American gardeners really use a blower to pile up lawn clippings? I would have thought that would be a fruitless task.
Do they not compost the mown grass? Or was composting what you meant by bagging?
